You'll be a strategic thinker with strong people leadership qualities.

  • Technology prospecting
  • Optimisation of existing products to meet changing market demands
  • OFA product data integrity, including the timely delivery of work instructions for product installation, testing, servicing, maintenance & operation and including the required technical competencies
