  • Ensuring the evaluation of the change requests for minor product modifications related to wing components and a decision making for preparing the industrialisation (CDR, Maturity board)
  • Monitoring of the major product modifications led by the A320 Programme Development Team, securing robust cut-over plans are in place before hand-over to serial operations.


  • Engineering degree in Aeronautic, Mechanical (or equivalent)
  • Experience in industrial and quality management systems
  • Experience in project management with strong organisational skills (experience in product change management or transfer of work would be a plus)
  • Financial awareness
  • Ability to analyse complex problems, evaluate alternative solutions and set recommendations
