job description

A Product Coordinator is required on a contract basis to join an industry leading engineering and manufacturing business.

Are you experienced in a marketing environment? Do you have the capabilities to be successful in a fast paced product support team? If you are looking for an exciting new opportunity, then this is the job for you!

Collaborative, accurate and rapid release and communication of product data into multiple global systems and facilities.

This is the entry level position in this division-wide global technical group. The key role is to learn and assist; to gain an understanding of the company's products, processes, and procedures; to learn and develop skills which result from the practical application of product change within business systems; to develop collaborative relationships with product groups and facilities; and to provide assistance to project teams or others in the work group.



Working with support the incumbent works on multiple multi-functional NPI / Non-NPI teams. The incumbent will collaborate with product group engineers and other key personnel to accurately author product introduction and change information, in the ECN spreadsheet and SAP change master, to effectively communicate engineering change information to global downstream business partners. Responsibilities include assisting with cross functional collaboration to ensure all required implementation dates are available and challenged as appropriate to allow for successful change implementation.

The incumbent is responsible for the validation and creation of material masters in a timely fashion to support ECN; aftermarket; design to order and component plants for multiple brands in multiple SAP systems. In addition they are responsible for the creation and manipulation of optimal BoM structures to support global manufacturing facilities, and final checks and approvals in engineering systems.

MDC Engineers / technologists apply their system; process; technical and product knowledge to prioritise and resolve inbox tasks and incidents, providing input to 1-Page DMAIC discussions as required ensuring successful identification of root cause and permanent corrective action. The ability to communicate complex, technical information to non-technical personnel, interpret, analyse and diagnose, identify and implement solutions with the appropriate sense of urgency are critical to success in this role.

Decisions made by the incumbent will impact inventory; costing; operations; aftermarket availability and NPI & Non-NPI process execution velocity.

The incumbent anticipates basic system or process challenges and continuous improvement opportunities associated with their current NPI / Non-NPI projects within the MDC space. MDC engineers and technologists work with more experienced team members to identify alternatives, risks and interrelationships of the functional areas involved and assure timely communications among related areas in order to support the creation of an execution orientated, risk managed solution.

The incumbent will adhere to the control standards set by the master data support team.

MDC engineers / technicians will assist in the technical training and coaching of less experienced team members, and will actively contribute to the quarterly technical peer reviews.

The incumbent will be responsible for managing their own development, continuously learning through experience and keeping current with best practise.

National & international travel may occasionally be required to support collaboration, learning and development, and project execution.


This position requires a bachelor's degree preferably in an engineering, computer science or a related discipline or HND with relevant experience, or considerably more relevant experience.

Technical experience in ERP systems and or data management systems in a manufacturing environment would be desirable

Demonstrated the ability to grasp complex engineering, manufacturability, systems and process concepts would be desirable

Sound analytical skills, good interpersonal, communication, and problem resolution skills desirable

This is an awesome opportunity to be part of a leading manufacturing business which offers an interesting, varied and exciting workload coupled with a motivated and passionate culture. You will be part of a small, friendly team working together to deliver programmes that are critical to the long-term success of a respected, global company.
