EMR Integrated Solutions is a leading provider of communications, SCADA and instrumentation solutions. Working with industrial sectors as diverse as water, power, utilities, corporate business, broadcasting and public safety organisations, we have a track record stretching back to the early 1980s and a management team with a wealth of industry experience.

Role Overview:

Due to ongoing expansion into the UK Market we are currently seeking a highly skilled, client-facing Project Manager. The Project Manager will be responsible for delivering a multitude of projects at any one time and will report into the UK Operations Manager and a reporting line into the Project Management Office. The role holder will be responsible for ensuring the deployment of EMR’s solutions and requirements are met for project delivery in line with CDM regulations to agreed timescales, costs and quality levels whilst seeking and growing new business opportunities.

The right candidate will possess strong leadership qualities, be able to work as part of an integrated team on a range of projects. Stakeholder relationship management skills are important for this role as you will be managing a range of relationships including the operations team, clients, contractors as well as regulators and local authority departments. It is essential that you are a confident communicator who has previous experience of dealing directly with senior stakeholders.

The role will require being able to work under pressure, to strict deadlines with minimal supervision and be able to accurately monitor and track delivery and take appropriate action to prevent program slippage and contractor cost management, supply chain and commercial systems to ensure consistency.


The role requires the candidate to be able to work successfully alone and as part of a team, either in remote customer locations or within an office environment. EMR’s customers are based throughout the UK and Ireland and the role holder will therefore have the flexibility to travel at short notice. This role will ideally be based in the UK Midlands or North East.
