Connected devices and systems developed by Consult Red are currently in more than 30 million homes around the world.

Our story started in 2003 when five friends founded the company in Shipley, West Yorkshire. Since then, we’ve grown a lot.

We want every team member to feel empowered, have a say in our future, and share in our success.

If that is something you can get excited about, we'd love to hear from you.

How you will spend your time

We don’t sell products; we sell expertise. Our Engineering teams are leaders in the Software and Hardware field, providing the kind of solutions that wow our customers into coming back to us again and again.

The Delivery function builds these project teams, ensuring that we have the best possible resource mix in place to meet our customer needs. This process demands a clear picture of resource availability, organisational capacity, and skills tracking. The Project Resource Manager will ensure that this information is available and up-to-date at all times, managing and manipulating large data sets in our ERP system to create insightful reports that aid delivery decision-making.

Exceptional organisation and administration skills are essential but are only part of this role. You’ll also need to be commercially aware and people-focused; an effective communicator, who can liaise with internal Project Managers, Group Leads, and Engineers to communicate – and sometimes negotiate – successful resource moves. This ability to influence and make things happen will be balanced with a keen eye for detail and a passion for data.

How You’ll Spend Your Time:

  • Supporting the Chief Delivery Officer with day-to-day resource management activity
  • Negotiating with Project Managers and Engineers to facilitate resource moves
  • Working with the Recruitment Teams to identify and communicate recruitment needs
  • Supporting the ongoing supply/demand reporting process and capacity planning
  • Monitoring and managing skills, capabilities and training data for all employees
  • Planning and reporting related to resource performance, utilisation and availability
  • Administration of resources and projects within our ERP system (Kimble/Salesforce)

What you will need to bring

Mandatory Skills

  • Superb organisation, project coordination and administration skills
  • The ability to create meaningful reports to drive decision-making
  • Advanced Microsoft Excel skills (including Pivot Tables, V-lookups etc.)
  • Exceptional communication skills, both written and verbal

Desirable Tech Skills

  • Exposure to relevant technologies (Software, Java, C++ etc.)
  • Prior experience using Salesforce or similar ERP systems
  • Knowledge of resource management and capacity planning techniques

What you will get in return

  • A competitive salary that grows with your career
  • A twice-yearly company bonus scheme
  • Opportunities to train, develop and grow your career
  • 25 days’ holiday as standard, rising an extra day for every year of service – to a maximum of 30 days
  • A flexible approach to work and a friendly, entrepreneurial atmosphere
  • Free on-site parking, rail season ticket support, and a cycle to work scheme

We want every team member to feel empowered, have a say in our future, and share in our success. 

If that is something you can get excited about, we'd love to hear from you.

How you will spend your time

In this role, you’ll build on your proven experience in software development and add in the ability to lead and inspire your team. You’ll still be in a hands-on technical role, working day-to-day in a Scrum team, but you’ll be the one your colleagues look to for support, to set their technical direction, help them out of sticky situations, and advise them on the right approach to a problem. Our clients will know you as the most dynamic member of the team (though not necessarily the most senior in years) and as someone, they can rely upon to answer their questions and explain difficult technical stuff in a down-to-earth way.

You’ll have excellent knowledge of software development. We mainly use C++ or Java, so experience with those is really helpful, but if you can show expertise in other languages, good theoretical knowledge and an ability to learn quickly we’d still love to hear from you.

We’re an entrepreneurial, customer-facing consultancy business, so our Technical Leads need to be passionate about innovation, communication, and leading by example in all that they do; consistently providing a first-class service to their team, the business and a wide variety of customer stakeholders.

You’ll generally be part of an established Agile (Scrum) team. While Scrum teams don’t officially have leaders, you’ll be able to use your experience to offer support and advice to other members of the team.

The work involves the delivery of a wide array of bespoke customer projects – you might be working on anything from the next generation of TV streaming boxes to a new embedded Internet-of-Things device that might sit at the heart of the home of the future.

Our customers value our expertise and industry experience, so they will look to you for advice, feedback, and solutions to a variety of technical problems. This means you’ll need to be knowledgeable, approachable and adaptable; stepping in to assist proactively, wherever you see a potential bump in the road.

This is a highly visible role within the business and, as well as helping others, you’ll have significant opportunities to train, develop yourself, and to progress your own career at Consult Red.

What you will need to bring

Mandatory Skills

  • Really strong, hands-on, software engineering experience
  • Great knowledge of modern software engineering techniques – such as object-oriented design, unit testing/test-driven development, CI/CD, use of code analysis tools
  • You are likely to have experience of developing in languages such as C++ or Java, but you’ll also be comfortable with the idea of learning new languages and technologies quickly
  • Experience working in Agile/Scrum teams
  • Experience mentoring and supporting other engineers on your team. While this doesn’t need to be in a formal management/leadership capacity, you will be a “people person” and a very strong team player, and you’ll know how to encourage a team to achieve its technical goals and hit deadlines
  • A desire to grow your career – you’ll be the sort of person who is always up for a challenge, interested to learn new things and gain new experience
  • A flexible, can-do approach
  • Outstanding communication skills; you’ll be confident discussing technical matters with both technical and non-technical people

Desirable Tech Skills

Experience with any of the following is useful, although not required – ability and willingness to learn is just as important.
