Come and join our Environmental Engineering function and work in our specialist mechanical and climatic facilities. We can offer the chance to work with pioneering analytical tools and powerful, innovative techniques for simulating environments across the weapons life cycle.

This team is integral within all land, sea and air-based weapon-system projects.

You will provide a technical focal point for all stages of the product lifecycle, through concept definition, design aid and formal qualification, and onto in-service support. Our expertise covers the areas of requirements specification and management; definition of proving methodologies; project management; data analysis; simulation and modelling and testing in climatic, mechanical (vibration and shock) and fatigue.

We apply specialist technical knowledge and advice, with responsibility for technical accuracy and delivery of projects within assigned work packages. The role provides plenty of opportunity for ‘hands-on' engineering coupled with technical work based on fundamental engineering principles.

  • An understanding of environmental test processes, test measurements and instrumentation
  • Someone with an analytical mind and excellent problem solving skills
  • A solution-oriented person with an inquisitive nature
What we need from you:
  • Drive and self-motivation, using your initiative and proactive nature
  • Make the most appropriate technical decision sometimes based on little information
  • Effective working in teams, using strong interpersonal skills
  • Identify and deliver through the right technical solution
Here's what's in it for you:
