About the Role

From a systems perspective, the role is required to manage all of Peregrine’s IT systems, including hardware setups, software setups, but primarily the building of internal data dashboards and visualisations to assist with operations development. The workstreams will include building and understanding our internal data structures, including the servers we have on premise and any cloud-based data we hold, and the management of that data. Using Lean methodologies, structuring these reports and processes in a standardised way will be a key aspect of the role. The dashboards will enable the business to grow and understand its data, allowing Peregrine to meet KPI targets and drive performance. Using Peregrine as a showcase Lean project, this will then become a saleable product through the consultancy sector.
From a Mechanical Engineering perspective, the role requires support of all Lean methodologies and implementation across both sites. From introducing 5S to training and development of all employees, the engineer will support in producing presentations, feeding data into workstreams and supporting practical problem-solving exercises. The role will entail following the PMO (project management office) process, leading projects from scope through to approval and implementation through a robust gateway and governance process.
