Our client is currently looking for an Engineering Manager to join their team in Aberdeen.

Okay, so now we’ve grasped your attention with the sympathy vote, let’s get down to the detail of why they would love you to join their team as an Engineering Manager in the Aberdeen Depot.

Our client’s customers rely on their services to get them to work, to the high street, to hospitals, to days away and nights out – and our engineering teams make sure their vehicles are in tip top condition to do just that.
It’s a big team of fitters, coach builders, electricians and cleaners who do some incredible work to make this happen every day.
And that’s where you come in – to lead 3 fantastic teams, to be part of their family in Aberdeen, working hard to achieve the 95% reliability of their services. Who knows, perhaps you can get them to the 100%?!

You’ll be leading 3 teams of professionals who are pretty nifty with a spanner or a mop – both of which are equally as important. Let’s face it, none of their customers want a dirty bus that works, or a clean one that doesn’t!
You’ll have the responsibility of supporting, advising and managing the team daily to maintain and repair their Aberdeen fleet of more than 100 buses and coaches.

It’s a really important role within their depot, so we’ll trust you to ensure vehicles are presented to the high standards that their customers want – and thus you’ll have autonomy over resource management. That means you’ll be getting stuck into ordering, managing inventory, recruiting, training, health & safety… So, variety will be aplenty!
And speaking of variety, they are a multi-site operation, so you won’t just be staring at the same four walls every day!

Perhaps you’re happy sticking at Engineering Manager level and that’s fine by us, but if you do want to progress, we’ll support you every step of the way. Next stop on the career ladder is Engineering Director – one of the most senior roles in our client’s business. You’ll have the opportunity to work alongside their current Director, who is good at what he does so you’ll get a lot from working with him!
Gaining exposure to work, which will develop your skills and experience to allow you to progress your career further.
It goes without saying that there are a couple of things we need from prospective Engineering Managers…

You don’t have to come from a bus background (they wouldn’t be put off if you did either!), but you will need to have worked in a related field – such as the truck / haulage industries in an engineering setting or any Depot Manager/Fleet Engineer would suit.

People management won’t be completely new to you either. You don’t have to be an existing manager, but you’ll need to be able to evidence of how you’ve managed teams, irrespective of their size.
