My job entails taking care of the well-being of the team, and being the central point of communication between every department I also deal with Sponsors, and communication with other Formula Student teams, as well as the Formula Student organisation. I also represent the contact between the Hanze and HARD, in order to make sure our team performs at their best and achieve their goals.
If you’re a person that likes to take important decisions, in certain tough situations this job is perfect for you. We are looking for a person that is a good listener and is always aiming at taking the best possible decision for the team.
You need to be enthusiast with the project, otherwise you won’t go really far, Organisation in this job is also crucial as you need to be able to make a good schedule plan, and making sure you stick to the plan and take care of the things.
This job is perfect for a person that is able to intervene whenever things are not going well, you also need to be an open person, with high social skills.
Hello! my name is Tim Heubner and I’m the current Lead of the Electrical Team.
I’m a Electrical Engineer student, and my interest in a more hands-on experience of engineering made me start at Hard almost 3 years ago. In my current role, which I have had for over a year, I manage the electrical engineering team. I keep an overview, assign tasks, keep everyone on track and maintain a good motivation. In this way, I try to ensure that we can keep a good progress.
Amongst the new skills that I learned in this lead position are many related to organization like creating short- and long-term plans, and management of different projects and sub-teams. I also have improved my teamwork skills and people-management.
The secret of being a good Lead Electrical is to be motivated and open to learn. And although it is useful to have an understanding of the technical aspects of the project, one learns by doing. In this sense, being responsible, reliable, open to learn, and with good general social skills, is all you need if you want to become the next Lead Electrical. The idea is to grow in the role and have fun in the process. It is a great opportunity!
