What you will be doing

Would you like to play a role in one of the most advanced engineering projects in the world and one of the most significant and complex defence programmes in the UK?

In a multi-disciplinary role across a ship, aircraft carrier or patrol vessel you will be focusing on the bigger picture and bridging the gaps between disciplines. Throughout the different stages of a product lifecycle, you’ll take the lead in systems integration and testing, qualification and acceptance. As well as the technical aspects of projects, you’ll also learn to consider important factors such as schedules, costs, training and environmental concerns.

  • Continually develop your hardware engineering capabilities to ensure knowledge and skills keep pace with best practice and technology
  • Undertaking equipment testing as part of the assurance process to verify that the design meets its requirements
  • Supporting the installation of hardware both at land-based sites and on ships
