The UK Head of Technical has recently been promoted into a Group leadership role, resulting in the requirement to recruit an excellent replacement. The role will oversee the site technical function, including new product development (NPD) and product testing responsibility for the Hallite UK business. With a level of autonomy, and holding a position on the senior leadership team, you will have the ability to influence and shape the future direction of Hallite Seals.
Reporting to the Managing Director in this challenging role, you will ensure new product design and testing is carried out safely, on time and within budget, whilst supporting the company’s people development and continuous improvement ambitions. Responsibilities will include:
• Design and delivery of the technical and NPD strategy in alignment with business goals.
• Development of a new product pipeline that meets customers’ requirements and supports the commercial team’s efforts to grow the business.
• Leadership of the technical team, driving optimised performance and process improvement.
The Head of Technical will have strong leadership qualities and an affinity for specialist seals manufacture. This could be from a competitor, a related manufacturing environment or customer end involvement.
You will be the technical authority on site, responsible for focussing the new product development effort in line with market demand and business growth aspirations. Hands on, customer focused and able to operate at pace, this is an excellent opportunity to join a progressive global firm.
The Head of Technical will be based from the Hallite Head Office in Hampton, close to London.
An excellent base salary, car allowance, bonus and package is on offer.
Relocation support and tier two sponsorship will be considered for the right candidate.
