Controls System Manager

Controls System Manager

3P are recruiting for a Control Systems Engineering Manager to join this growing entrepreneurial organisation who provide world leading custom equipment to the Pharmaceutical, Healthcare and FMCG sectors. This ambitious and rapidly expanding privately-owned organisation is offering the successful candidate the opportunity to join the business at an exciting point in time. This is an opportunity to build, develop and mould a relatively new team to step-up to larger automation projects. There is the opportunity to own part of the business through regular share option schemes. 

Reporting to 3P's board, you will have a good quality Bachelor's Degree in Engineering or Technology (MSc, Meng or PhD) and most likely be a Chartered Engineer (IET) or similar. A background in automation control systems (ideally from a related machinery background within the Pharmaceutical, Healthcare or FMCG sector) would be an advantage. Your role will involve managing a small team of engineers, so previous management experience would also be beneficial.

You will play a key role in coordinating the work flow across all projects requiring support from your team (overseeing the delivery of control systems, documentation, supervising the software design, code, test and commissioning phases, including after-market support). You will also help recruit new staff when necessary as well as contribute to the Business Development by generating new software estimates for proposals, providing subject matter expertise during the bid process and generating controls-led business. Being aware of regulatory regimes (Safety of Machinery Standards and Software Development Standards) is a must. Knowledge of the GAMP 5 Pharmaceutical Standard & 21CFR11 regulations would be advantageous.

This role would suit a 'system' thinker, able to switch from an overview to detail. The sucessful candidate will be confident with: PLCs, SCADA/HMIs, PID Controllers (typically temperature controllers), Servo-motors, Machine Vision Systems, Robots, Data acquisition/logging and factory communication systems.

This outstanding opportunity offers excellent career prospects, with the ability to shape your own career and own part of the business you will help to mould. This is an exciting time to join 3P, as we benefit from a purpose built, significantly larger, new building. This will enable us to capitalise on our ever-growing reputation for providing the best custom equipment associated with new medical devices
