Systems Integration Manager

An exciting and hugely varied position which encompasses pre-sales, design, integration, simulations and testing of new materials handling automated projects for clients across the UK and Northern Europe. 

Main Responsibilities

As a Systems Integration Manager, you’ll sit as part of our Project Realisation department and play a key role in new projects implementing automated materials handling solutions. Our pipeline of new projects is growing, with a number of bids and proposals already underway with a range of clients across Northern Europe, so it's an exciting time to be joining us!

The Systems Integration Manager will act as a technical subject matter expert and the glue between all of the different project teams. This includes defining what success looks like for IT and Controls suppliers and then reviewing this throughout to ensure objectives have been met.

You will also work closely with the client throughout the project acting as a technical expert of the automated solution, which will enable you to manage the client’s expectations from an early stage.

This is an exciting opportunity to be involved with the full life-cycle of the project, from pre-sales design to delivery of the solution...



You’ll determine the feasibility of the design, review the contractual requirements and outline any limitations of the solution, which will involve running and reviewing simulation models. In addition, you will produce the test specification for the project.



  • Define the tests and scenarios which are required for the simulation
  • Lead the production of the functional design specification
  • Review predicted vs actual processes on the solution.
  • Assess the design to ensure that it will deliver the performance and functionality which is required by the client contract.



Defining and managing on-site Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT) to ensure all systems achieve the requirements. You’ll also manage Site Acceptance Testing (SAT) on the client site.
