Description For more than a hundred years, this auto parts Black Box designer has led the way in developing complex systems and manufacturing processes. Even in this age of chip shortages, its programs have been steady sellers resulting in no layoffs or reductions in production. Building on this solid foundation, it is expanding with new products, technologies, and programmes that will secure a bright future. Following a retirement, it is reorganizing Maintenance and Process Engineering into one cohesive department and will hire a Maintenance & Engineering Manager to lead these teams.

The Maintenance & Engineering Manager will inherit a fully experienced Maintenance Team and a Process Engineering team of a mixture of tribal knowledge strengths and newer hires. The challenge will be to blend these teams into a cohesive unit, sharing knowledge and attacking projects quickly. New products and programs require increased capacity, machinery rebuilds, and new tooling all while keeping pace with current business.

Our ideal candidate has done this job elsewhere and is "Job Ready". Experience in the auto parts world is a critical selection criteria and, specific expertise in metallurgical, machining, mechanical assembly processes will enhance candidacy. We are particularly interested in candidates who have career ambitions beyond this role as future retirements will be opening up such opportunities. An Engineering Degree is the preferred credential although candidates who have developed their careers upward from the Skilled Trades can be considered. Exceptional communications skills, a lead-from-in-front attitude, an employee development focus, professional composure, drive and results commitment describe the personal attributes of the candidate we're seeking.
