This is an opportunity for an experienced engineer's career to shine. A fast-growing company focusing on original equipment manufacturing (OEM) and original design manufacturing is looking to fill the position of director of engineering. Asian Career is handling the search. 'The company is growing rapidly, expanding its service capabilities and geographic coverage,' said Hity Cheung, manager, executive search, industry and manufacturing practice of Asian Career. 'Strong engineering support is of the utmost importance.' Three people will report directly to the engineer and there will be about 10 indirect subordinates. The engineer will oversee the entire engineering team, mentoring and supporting cross-functional team members to lead key research and development activities. Strong engineering, research and development, product-development and people-management skills will prove useful. A qualified engineer with a recognised degree in electronic engineering and at least 10 years' relevant experience of which five years were at a management level in the electronics related industry is sought. Ms Cheung said the best personality for the job would be someone with a 'flexible management style with good team building ability and who is a great problem solver'. As an indispensable part of the senior management team, the candidate would also help with strategy plans and directions for the development of future technology in line with the company's vision and business direction. The person would also be in charge of analysing and developing systems to improve the manufacturing process, product design and new components. 'This is a good opportunity to head a strategic business unit in the future.' The applicant would be expected to travel to China to monitor the engineering team at the factory.
