Enigma People Solutions is recruiting a Project Manager for a specialist technology product design client in Edinburgh. Ideally you will currently be a project manager with 3-5 years (or more) experience in managing projects for electronics, software or product design who can manage complex multi-disciplinary product developments in a fast-moving consultancy environment. You will form a key part of the project management team, coordinating the activities of internal and sub-contracted resources, managing budgets, preparing proposals, supporting business development activities and acting as the main project point of contact with clients.

This permanent role will suit an enthusiastic individual with broad project and technical experience. You will have experience of managing concurrent projects, ideally in a consultancy environment, and will bring more to the table than just project management skills. You will be good at leading teams and ensuring work is conducted to a high standard and in accordance with ISO quality management system standards. Ideally you will have worked on the development of medical products or in a similar regulated environment. Above the necessary technical/management attributes you possess, what is equally important is that you are personable and approachable to both clients and the internal team alike.

On offer is the chance to work in a forward thinking and successful employee-owned SME business. In return you can expect a competitive salary that includes a share of company dividends through the employee trust, company workplace pension and the opportunity to thrive within a challenging and supportive culture. As part of the package there is also continual training and development and the Cycle to Work Scheme.

The company is an established brand with an excellent reputation for achieving a competitive edge for small and large businesses alike by bringing new or improved products to market. The team works collaboratively with clients to augment their internal capabilities, supporting them to add functionality, reduce cost, increase visual appeal, enhance usability, and keep pace with the IoT revolution. Clients include household names and those on their way to becoming leading consumer electronics and medical device brands.

You will be able to work remotely or in the company’s bright and open studio based 20 minutes south of Edinburgh’s centre in stunning rural surroundings with views of the Pentland Hills. The company recognises the value of maintaining a strong work life balance which they foster through flexible and remote working arrangements (co-designed by the team itself).
