Employer: Spanish Toy Manufacturer
Position: Director R & D
Category: R & D
Location: Barcelona, Spain
Contact: Andrew Dobbie
Apply to: Gameplan Europe Ltd, firstname.lastname@example.org
Our client is a long established privately owned manufacturer of toys in Barcelona. The company develops and markets its own ranges of collectable toys supported by TV and digital advertising. Against a background of rising sales the company is now poised for major growth internationally. This will be generated by extending the number of distributors around the world and by developing play sets which will enhance the play value of the collectable ranges as well as helping to extend their life cycle.
A director of research and development is to be recruited who will play a key role in driving the growth of the company and lead the team of eight designers and three developers. This key position in the company will be based in Barcelona, so candidates living in other countries around the world should only apply if they are able and willing to relocate for the right opportunity.
Suitable candidates will have an excellent general knowledge of the toy and games industry and good understanding of a major toy market and retailer requirements. They will have several years of demonstrably successful experience of managing the development of toys or games which covers every stage of development and they will either have an R&D function in a toy company or be working as an independent inventor. Candidates must be able to speak and write English well. Spanish is not required but in order to help to settle in both in the company and the community it would make sense to learn Spanish in Barcelona.
A competitive salary and bonus will be offered in order to attract well qualified candidates who have a demonstrable track record of successful development of toys.
