Planning Manager (Engineering) - Barrow
A successful FTSE 100 engineering support services organisation is looking to take on a Planning Manager to work within the Integrated Programme Management Team (IPMT) based in Barrow.
The primary purpose of the role is to manage the interfaces on the Dreadnought programme to give an accurate assessment of programme performance and ability to deliver to time and cost.
Based in Barrow, you will proactively drive the planning forward. You will liaise with production managers, designer engineers and other members within the alliance in order to understand the programme of work and identify if there are any delays to the schedule. As the programme is moving into the manufacturing phase, it is important to assess the risks involved if the delivery schedule is not adhered to for example, and feed these impacts into the wider senior team.
The successful candidate will have line management responsibilities and pastoral care to a team of 4 and be supported by the Dependency engineer.
