MBDA Missile Systems - Deliver for a more secure tomorrow

Salary: Up to £45K + Bonus + Excellent Benefits

Full time and Part time working considered

A phenomenal opportunity has arisen for an Electronics Design Engineer to join our team in Bolton to support production activities and act as an interface between the design teams in Stevenage and manufacturing in Bolton. Whilst the primary aim is focused on the highly advanced module missile programmes, there is scope to work on other unique opportunities, offering the right candidate a true engineering challenge in their core field, whilst providing scope for growth.

What we’re looking for
  • Likely to be degree / HND qualified in Electronics or a closely related subject.
  • Significant proven experience in the design of Digital and Analogue electronics, preferably in the defence industry, (but not essential).
  • Experience of switch mode power supplies would also be an advantage, (but not essential).
  • The pro-activeness, motivation, ability and tenacity to resolve issues and generate solutions to problems whilst under time pressure.
  • Excellent verbal communication, negotiation and influencing skills, with the ability to write clear and concise engineering documentation.
  • The ability to work autonomously to lead the delivery of your work assignments and actively engage with partners to ensure successful delivery.
  • Experience in supporting manufacturing and resolving manufacturing issues is an advantage, but not essential.
Note: This role requires reasonable travel in the UK and could involve some travel overseas in Europe (subject to COVID-19 restrictions).

What’s in it for you?

This role provides a unique opportunity to bring together the design and production areas to ease the transition of a product into production. The scope to learn and enhance your capabilities and understanding of both environments is a rare opportunity.

You will have plenty of opportunity to interface and influence at all levels of the organisation and to enhance the relationship between design and manufacturing especially in ensuring that our designs are robust and contain the features necessary to improve manufacturability and testability.

Our benefits

*Flexible working *opportunities for career progression *paid overtime (subject to level) *great bonus scheme *comprehensive pension scheme *annual salary review *fantastic working environment and site facilities *social, charitable and sporting activities.

Join a great team!

The design support team is a multi-skilled team of interdependent, highly capable and committed individuals. They are the crucial link between design and manufacturing and must use all of their experience, technical and personal capabilities to interface to both areas of the business, where time and cost pressures often cause rifts in the interface that must be carefully handled for success. The team is friendly and supportive and is respected throughout the manufacturing and design organisations.

Company

MBDA, a world leader in missiles and missile systems, is a multi-national group with 10,000 employees working across France, the United Kingdom, Italy, Germany, Spain and the United States. It has three major aeronautical and defence shareholders - Airbus Group (37.5%), BAE Systems (37.5%) and Finmeccanica (25%) - and is the first truly integrated European defence company. In 2013, the Group recorded a turnover of 2.8 billion euros, produced about 3,000 missiles and added 4 billion euros of new orders to the order book which now stands at 10.8 billion euros. MBDA works with over 90 armed forces worldwide.

MBDA was created in December 2001, after the merger of the main missile producers in France, Italy and the UK. Each of these companies contributed the experience gained from fifty years of technological and operational success. The restructuring of the industry in Europe was completed with the acquisition of the German subsidiary EADS/LFK in March 2006. This further enriched MBDA’s range of technologies and products, consolidating the Group’s world-leading position in the industry.

MBDA is the only Group capable of designing and producing missiles and missile systems to meet the whole range of current and future operational requirements for the three armed forces (army, navy, air force). Overall, the Group offers a range of 45 products in service and another 15 in development.

The Group has demonstrated its ability to bring together the best skills across the whole of Europe and as a result has been chosen to lead a series of strategic multi-national programmes. These include the six-nation Meteor air superiority weapon, the Franco-British conventionally armed cruise missile, Storm Shadow/SCALP, and a family of air defence systems based on the Aster missile for France and Italy (for ground and naval based air defence) and for the UK (naval air defence for the Royal Navy’s Type 45 destroyers).

The mastery of cutting-edge technologies is not only an advantage for MBDA in successfully developing and producing new products. It is also a means of guaranteeing customers that innovations can be made to existing products during their life span in order to meet constantly changing specifications arising from increasingly complex engagement scenarios. It is precisely this combination which makes MBDA the defence sector partner of choice in many countries around the world.
