An opportunity has arisen for a number of talented Power Transmission Sub System Design Integrators to join our Power Transmission Systems (PTS) team in Derby.

Power Transmission Systems design and integrate a diverse range of components and sub-systems for gas turbine Engines. Examples include major Engine structures, mount systems, accessory gearboxes, bearings chambers, drives shafts and bearings. This diversity generates a large number of functional and physical interfaces with other stakeholders in the whole Engine design process, both internally and with major external Partners.

As a PTS Sub System Design Integrator you will apply the latest methods and procedures such as Robust Design and Systems Engineering appropriately during the design process. You will provide a point of contact for customer projects and liaise with airframe customers, partners, supporting departments and manufacturing plants as appropriate to ensure delivery against our commitments.

The Design Integration role is key to the generation of innovative engineering solutions to meet complex sub-system requirements: preserving the quality of engineering solution whilst recognising cost and timescale challenges; supporting engine project whilst recognising conflicting priorities and timescales; communicating with many IPTs across several geographical locations and ensuring that all IPTs work with a consistent set of data and requirements. This is a technical role, with scope to progress to Global Grades through the Technical Specialist Career Progression Process. This role is also an excellent stepping stone for individuals with aspirations towards Project Assistant Chief Design Engineer or Chief Design Engineer.
