Overall Department Direction;

The Engineering Support Hub is a key customer facing department within the Engineering Services Business Unit. The business unit is responsible for delivering design solutions for extensive and diverse infrastructure upgrades and improvements across the entire Devonport site and often beyond. The demands on our facilities are constantly changing as the pursuit of modern safety standards, adopting an Asset Management approach and changing requirements drives the need for revised and enhanced engineering solutions.

The provision of safe, available and capable facilities is at the heart of the Naval Base, which supports Devonport’s operational requirements.

Main Purpose of Role;

As a Design Manager in the Engineering Support Hub you will manage the delivery of assigned single, and multi-discipline, design projects to the required scope, quality standards, schedule and cost in support of modifications and upgrades to Devonport’s infrastructure. You will have the experience and competence to integrate with a multidisciplinary organisation acting as the single point of contact for all stakeholders, including the external supply chain.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a developing part of the business undergoing significant transformation to support the Devonport Facilities requirements of the Future Maritime Support Programme.

Required Knowledge, Skills,   Experience and Competences;

As Design Manager you will have a technical background and demonstrate excellent communication and interpersonal skills due to the levels of stakeholder management required by the role. You will have a sound understanding of engineering design and safety practice, experience of the design lifecycle, experience in cost control and scheduling, the ability to self-manage and produce information and outputs with little guidance.  


You are required to have a degree (or equivalent experience) in an appropriate discipline and be a Chartered Engineer, or working towards registration as a Chartered Engineer, with a relevant professional engineering institution.
