Head of Innovation and Technology

This is a senior position reporting to the Managing Director of a c. 40 million, highly successful, specialist subsidiary of a private Group.

The company has a reputation for the quality of its products which are designed and manufactured for its international client base in the heavy duty diesel vehicle and equipment marketplaces.

It has a strategic plan for continued organic growth and innovative product development is a key driver in the achievement of this. The role involves bringing leadership to a highly experienced and extremely well-qualified technical team and the focus of the role is to establish the company's technical vision, innovate through new ideas and market opportunities and lead all aspects of the technology and new product development programmes from concept to commercialisation.

As Head of Innovation and Technology, you will lead a multi-faceted, top flight engineering team which embraces mixed technologies. You will inject enthusiasm and drive and develop ideas and concepts which are new and potentially ground-breaking as it is felt that the major opportunities in this field will come from step changes in technology rather than progressing refinements to existing products.

A candidate with very high levels of creativity and technical expertise is required for the Head of Innovation and Technology role. The major requirement is for a lively, proactive technical ability based upon engineering or physical science qualifications to second degree level and proven success in recognised innovation and product development. You will have been trained in a world-class company which manufactures products with lots of complexity and you will relish the freedom and scope that the role offers to bring innovation and change.

The company has an open, people-oriented management culture, it strongly believes in teamwork and people development and it takes the long-term view. The benefits package will be designed to attract a world-class technology professional into a company which is committed to excellence, diversity and employee fulfilment. Relocation to an attractive lifestyle area will also be offered.
