In this supportive, inclusive workplace, you’ll work together with our team to protect our Armed Forces.

Within Weapons Systems, we’re looking for skilled people across teams as diverse as Laser Directed Energy, Aerospace, Propulsion and Modelling. There are also opportuniites within the fast-evolving field of Radio Frequency. You could be involved in projects as varied as RF DEW weapons, radar or threat warning modelling. Meanwhile, the Land domain has further roles for experienced technical experts, working on areas such as gun systems, vetronics, mechanical engineering, and power and energy sources, architectures and systems.

Whatever the challenge, you’ll be encouraged to bring your own perspective, background and thinking to the role. That’s one of the things that makes our organisation unique.

What’s more, our work has a real impact. We’re supporting the defence and security of the UK – with hundreds of projects underway at any given time. So the variety really is unlimited. Which means that an inquisitive mind-set will be as essential as your technical expertise.

Where will your talents take you?
