Industrial Automation Lead

ABOUT THE ROLE

As the lead for the Industrial Automation Market you will act as a key interface between our internal teams and the outside world.

Your primary objective will be business development, working to agreed revenue targets, and focusing on delivering opportunities for Plextek to solve cutting edge problems for international organisations. Our capabilities are broad, so the work is extremely varied – ranging from pure research to full product development.

But this is by no means a purely commercial role. To be successful you will need to identify potential clients, use your deep technical expertise to understand and articulate a solution to their unique challenge and collate the business case to enable all parties to engage. It will be your drive that sees projects come to fruition.

You will be backed up by a supportive management team, a highly collaborative workforce with fantastic technical skills, a long list of previous clients and a capable marketing department. The role offers wide freedom to contribute to Plextek and grow your profile in the exciting field of Industrial Automation.

ABOUT YOU

To be successful in this role you will a very strong grasp of the range of technology that Plextek works with on a regular basis. We anticipate you will need five to ten years’ experience in a relevant engineering design role to have achieved the required level of technical depth. You will need to have business development experience, or be able to demonstrate to us how you have the commercial and interpersonal skills to drive future business through matching our technical capability to client needs.

Experience in a technical field related to the Industrial Automati on sector is desirable, but an appetite for working across both technical and commercial domains will be prioritised over direct experience. Your capability to innovate whilst also keeping sight of the big picture will differentiate you from many purely technical or commercial candidates.

A collaborative and professional outlook will help you build relationships based on trust and delivery. You will be comfortable presenting in an engaging style to a range of audiences, leading meetings and will have excellent written communication skills.

You will be self-motivated, structuring your own schedule to prioritise activities that maximise your contribution. You will enjoy developing new strategies to approach the market. You will be a flexible learner, capable of rapidly understanding new technical areas or developing domain knowledge in new markets. You will derive your job satisfaction from helping to grow our business in this sector and seeing a job well done by the Plextek team.
