TECHNICAL MANAGER - CONCRETE TECHNOLOGY
"High profile role for commercially astute, technical leader and concrete technology specialist to join blue chip multinational at a prestigious customer site."

£Very Competitive Bonus Blue Chip Benefits

Cumbria/Lake District

As an expert in concrete, you'll have already laid the foundations of your career and built a library of knowledge and experience. But would you like to extend your skills even further?

Putting aside the terrible puns, our client is offering the rare opportunity for someone with your ability to join a unique, long-term project at their site in Cumbria.

If we say they're providing concrete, made to exacting standards, to their client in the nuclear industry, you don't need to be a genius to fill in the blanks of the companies involved.

It's a long-term supply contract which should provide you with enough job security to consider relocating to the region if you live outside a commutable zone. Plus, it has a high level of prestige with the instantly recognisable organisations you'll be working for who could catapult your career to new highs.

So, as the Technical Manager, you'll lead a small team of six technicians at the concrete manufacturing plant. The overview of the role is to provide expert knowledge and technical support to the sales and operational teams regarding customer specifications and product manufacture/delivery.

Given the construction projects involve, you can imagine that ensuring the quality and specification of the concrete is critical. So this is an active role where you'll be a visible presence in the manufacturing plant and on-site at the end user's facility. You won't be stationed in a lab, crunching data all day, as you'll provide technical support and advice to main contractors and engineers.

As Technical Manager, you'll already have a solid working knowledge of aggregates and Ready Mix (RMX) concrete products and their applications. Plus, you'll be familiar with EN206 standards and specifications.

Qualifications-wise, you'll likely have a University Certificate or Diploma in Concrete Studies, City and Guilds Concrete Technology and Construction (similar). But, most importantly, you'll thoroughly understand the concrete production process and be confident in communicating with engineers and technicians at all levels.

In return, our client offers the kind of benefits package you'd expect from a company of their size and will help with your relocation if you live outside of the area.

As you can imagine, there are many other details to discuss. So please indicate your interest by emailing your CV, quoting reference LX 1209217
