Although this particular post is focussed on leading our activities in audio engineering as described above, a Lead Technologist may be expected to be involved in other areas as opportunities arise. This job specification outlines the breadth of work, some of the anticipated fields of expertise and indicates the level the role is required to work to, and the experience required. Individuals will not be expected to work in all skill areas to the highest of levels, but will be required to demonstrate a good range of skills, while specialising in one or two areas of technology research, innovation or project management.
As a Lead Technologist you will be responsible for a group of research & development projects; either small projects that stand alone, or parts of larger projects. These projects may deliver hardware or software systems, technical standards, or research knowledge. You will also be required to provide technical advice and consultancy within your own field of expertise.
You may be involved in any of the stages of a project, from feasibility studies through to implementation and delivery to the client. You’ll have every opportunity to develop your skills and see your ideas through to completion, very often into operational service.
