The Company

At CPI we work with our partners to translate inventions into products and processes that enhance health and well-being, protect and improve our environment and increase productivity across industries.

With a deep understanding of innovation processes and funding, outstanding technical expertise and industry relevant assets, we enable products and processes to be quickly and cost-effectively brought to market. This supports the development of next-generation manufacturing, highly-skilled jobs and economic growth for the UK.

Our partners operate across many diverse markets including pharmaceuticals, speciality chemicals, food and drink, electronics and transportation.

The Role

CPI’s new and exciting National Healthcare Photonics Centre aims to help companies innovate new photonics-enabled technologies for therapies, diagnostics and imaging. As part of the Centre’s activities we are seeking to recruit a strong Technology Manager, with a photonics background, to provide solutions to complex technical problems.

You will be managing a small but dynamic technical team, working in collaboration with Durham University, to carry out project work on behalf of customers looking to translate their product or concept further towards commercialisation. A typical project will have photonics at its core but will involve a multi-disciplinary approach so a broad range of skills and knowledge is needed.

You will be comfortable engaging with our customers, helping to define and plan the projects, and be responsible for the team’s delivery of these projects and providing technical excellence in support to this new business area.

The Person

The person we are looking for will have sound experience in a relevant scientific discipline and are likely to be operating at a Principal Scientist level, or similar. You may already be a people manager, or have experience at supervising a small team, and are looking for the next step in your career development.

Candidates should demonstrate that they have significant experience in the design or build or use of photonic systems, preferably with industrial experience involving the use of photonics in one or more healthcare related applications. The ideal candidate will be committed to, and actively seek, opportunities to develop themselves within this new and exciting role.

The Benefits

The successful person will receive a generous benefits package including: Pension, Company Sick Pay, Life Assurance and Accident Insurance
