With its unique design expertise and manufacturing processes, the organisation is now undertaking extensive field testing, with volume production imminent. The technology has multiple further applications and its potential is underlined by the strength of its board and financial backing.

Due to the ramp up in activity and future product roadmap, a Chief Engineer is now required to lead the engineering function as it grows to meet demand. Reporting to the COO, you will lead the design and development of micro turbine distributed power systems and all future product applications.

  • Develop and implement policies, standards and procedures for the engineering and technical work performed in the organisation, continuously challenging and enhancing departmental best practice to develop an industry leading engineering capability
  • Promote, ensure and enforce safety in the workplace

The successful candidate will be a recognised engineering leader and have:
