Our Expertise in Project Manager Recruitment

In previous cases, the typical engineering managers we have soured had both hands-on technical experience within electronics and embedded systems businesses and then progressed into leadership positions. Candidates are also often required to have worked as part of electronics and embedded systems teams and have the ability to communicate on a level with highly skilled and technically minded individuals.

Recruiting exclusively in this industry sector means that we have a uniquely valuable understanding of what technical engineer manager jobs in embedded systems and electronics businesses involve. We know the skills and experience required for different jobs and will match our candidates with opportunities that make the most out of their backgrounds.

We work with formerly trained technical project managers and engineering managers who have qualifications such as agile methodologies, PRINCE2, Scrum Master qualified PSM 1 – 2019, TFS Kanban and confluence systems. We also work with trained technical project managers and engineering managers who have developed their skills through real-life experiences and situations on projects within electronics and embedded systems businesses.

Technical project managers we have previously hired have worked within the full project and programme lifecycle and have strong relationship management skills, as well as relevant technical experience that often sees them introduce new software development methodology. Engineering managers usually have similar roles, but may also hold responsibilities such as being authorised signatories, key contributors to product road maps, the R&D representative on change note committees and the company and R&D representative to customers and internal stakeholders.

Technical Project Manager Jobs UK – FAQs

What does an engineering manager earn?

According to data from Indeed, the average annual salary for an engineering project manager in the UK is £62,901. This role requires a fair amount of experience as well as the necessary skills required to lead others, which is why the average salary is high. It’s not often a role given to graduates or junior engineers, who will likely start out in lower-paying engineering roles before progressing to a manager position.

Which city is best for technical project manager jobs in the UK?

According to an article by RGPM, the best UK city for project management jobs is London. This is because there is a very high concentration of established companies and start-ups in London which all require technical project managers for their new projects, and it’s also the city in the UK with the highest project manager salaries, on average.

What are the 4 main roles of a technical project manager?

Technical project managers have a wide range of different responsibilities in their role, but four of the most important include planning and allocating tasks, assessing and mitigating risks, defining and monitoring budgets and delivering progress and final reports to relevant stakeholders. These roles define the purpose of a technical project manager, ensuring that projects run smoothly from start to finish and keeping everyone involved working as efficiently as possible.
