The vacancy of CAD Manager has arisen within the Engineering function to oversee the busy CAD helpdesk and directly manage the skilled engineers who provide support and training to the engineering function.  Reporting to the Head of CAE, this role is responsible for maintaining and improving upon the high levels of support to the Engineering user base, as well as oversight of training material and delivery. 

Other responsibilities expected of this role are:

  • Ownership and maintenance of departmental procedures, including Digital Product Definition.
