As a Systems Lead Project Engineer, you will have responsibility for leading the engineers within integrated project teams. You will have a systems thinking mind-set, coupled with knowledge of project management techniques where you will support the programme manager.
You will be involved in bid opportunities for a product line area, and where successful, progress these into live project execution up until customer delivery. You will work with the programme manager and engineering leads to plan the scope of work, then lead and coordinate the activities to ensure cost and schedule requirements are attained, delegating responsibility across the various functions as appropriate.
