      We are looking for a self-motivated professional R&D Manager to join this successful team working within the catering equipment (dishwashers / glasswashers) industry.

      Our existing product range is well established and accepted within the market place and yet we still have many opportunities to develop the existing range and introduce new products that will bring us greater success in the future.

      Our existing product range is electromechanical in design, although we are presently exploring the introduction of electronics into the next generation of machines. For this reason candidates will be expected to have a broad engineering background and an understanding of electronics would be a advantage.

      Being part of a small team this position will have a direct influence of all aspects of the product through conception, detailed design, manufacture, testing and customer satisfaction. The position of R&D manager reports to the Technical Director and sits alongside the Production Manager and Material Control Manager
      Future plans are for more joint ventures between Classeq and our parent company Winterhalter which will require a matrix style of management within both companies. The role will be supported by the extended R&D department at our parent company (Winterhalter).

      Though Classeq are part of a much larger group (Winterhalter) the actual team in Classeq (in Hixon) works autonomously for most of the time which means that this position holder will have the opportunity to work freely and contribute to real change within the products and company on a number of existing and new projects.

      • Good Electro-mechanical, electrical design experience with proven track record
      • Strong IT skills

      • Ability to communicate with customers and all external bodies professionally
      • Good problem solving ability
      • Strong managerial skills to lead and inspire product design & development meetings
      • Ability to work on own initiative
      • Some occasional travel abroad for product design and improvement meetings will be required

      Required skills & expertise:

      • Electro-mechanical Engineering
      • Product Design
      • Electrical design and legislation knowledge
      • Knowledge of Solidworks or similar packages
      • Proven project and man management skills
