NPI Design Manager - Jigs/Fixtures/Tooling

One of our clients in West London is actively looking for 2 NPI Design Managers as they continue to expand their operations, and I wondered if you are considering alternative options at the moment.
 
This role will manage a growing team of design engineers. The team will sit within the Tooling and Equipment department and will be responsible for the design, manufacture and sourcing of tooling and equipment for use in production. As the company grows, the departments for current products and new products will be split, with the chance to grow and develop your team further.
