£40 – £45K


Bluefin Recruitment is working with a client near Leicester to find a Senior Project Manager. The key purpose of this role is to provide project management to product development projects with a strong focus on delivering safe products and minimising time to market.  You will drive the structuring and costing of your designated projects through a product development process, from concept through to full production, developing and maintaining project timing plans and budgets to match internal and external customer requirements.

You will be responsible for tracking and reporting programme status to key stakeholders, including senior management, through the use of metrics, KPIs and the product development process and will support the programme management office in the development and implementation of programme management processes and documentation.

A key part of the role is to define workload and resource requirements in conjunction with resource managers to ensure projects are delivered on time and to budget.  You will also highlight, monitor and track risks and mitigate with appropriate action where necessary.  You will ensure that countermeasures are in place to resolve issues as and when they arise.

About you

You will hold a BEng, BSc (or equivalent) in a relevant engineering, scientific or business discipline, or possess a relevant non-degree level qualification alongside suitable industrial experience.  Ideally you will hold or be working towards a PMP or PRINCE2 certification.

You will have demonstrable technical project management experience and ideally programme management experience.  Experience managing collaborative projects would be beneficial.

You will have strong leadership, decision making and problem solving skills, which have been demonstrated in a complex technical environment.

It is key to us that you have a commercial mindset and the ability to work with a flexible and solutions focused approach, in a dynamic and fast paced environment.  You must also be able to work collaboratively with a cross-functional team alongside both technical and non-technical colleagues.  As such, excellent communication skills are vital.


This is a fantastic opportunity to join a leading Engineering company. If you are interested in applying, please send a copy of your CV to Rob Atkins at Bluefin Recruitment for immediate consideration.
