Installation Manager
Livingston based
Competitive Salary plus Benefits Package
Based in West Lothian, our client is a niche manufacturing business with a blue chip, global client base. Continued commercial success means their business is now seeking to hire a Project Manager to compliment the current team.  The Installation Manager will play a critical role in achieving business objectives, by ensuring overall management of all installations, ensuring that you are providing the best service.  The successful candidate will be involved in a senior position within the company and will have full accountability and ownership for global installation projects. Working closely with the inhouse production, design and sales teams you will deliver a seamless hand over from preparation of goods, to shipping, and receipt on client site.

Through effective management of small teams of skilled, specialist installers, you will deliver to project timescales, ensuring contracts are delivered on time, on budget and exceed client expectations.
Full support and training will be given as it is imperative you understand the design, manufacturing, assembly and quality sign off process in line with the scope of works and specification.

Typically, there are 10 installations underway at any time. These range from small 1-day UK install projects to major international project lasting several months.  You will however be self-managing and to a large extent in control of your diary and the need for travel will diminish as the role develops.
