BAE Systems is the UK Government’s nominated Prime Contractor (PC) under the Government-to-Government arrangements that are in place to provide equipment, support and training to Saudi Arabia. We provide maintenance of Royal Saudi Air Force (RSAF) aircraft and train RSAF personnel safely in a training environment in how to use their aircraft, equipment and weapons. For such maintenance and training, this role is responsible to Apply measurement science, mathematics, physics, to develop, document and maintain calibration systems, procedures and methods for mechanical, Pressure/Vacuum, Temperature, Humidity, Dimensional, Test Measuring and Diagnostic Equipment (TMDE). Evaluate new calibration methods and procedures. Use statistics to analyze measurement standards and processes. Recommend calibration standards and TMDE. Maintain calibration laboratory and quality systems. Perform laboratory and/or departmental administration and management.
Maintain traceability by operating an internal comparison measurement program, and sending the appropriate Primary Calibration Squadron (PCS) reference standards away at regular intervals to a higher level calibration laboratory that can provide the required uncertainty of measurement. Ensure that the calibration history of all the reference standards is properly documented and traceability is maintained.
Undertake the calibration of a wide range of measurement standards for which the PCS has capability. Analyse the results obtained to give estimates of measurement uncertainty, check that the specifications are met and produce certificates of calibration. Maintain appropriate records for all items of TMDE calibrated by the PCS.
Participate with Measurement Audit Programmes (MAP’s) and the internal Quality Control system operated in the PCS.
Where possible, undertake the repair and overhaul of equipment submitted to the PCS for calibration. Assist with the development of special measurement methods and the drafting of associated local calibration procedures.
Provide assistance to Secondary Calibration Squadron staff to resolve measurement problems. Assist with the training program in the PCS for RSAF and Saudi National trainees.
Will be educated to a minimum level of Ordinary National Certificate in Physics / Electro-Mechanics / Mechanical Engineering or have significant work experience and demonstrated academic abilities to waiver this educational requirement.
A sound academic background is required in Mechanics, Mechanical Engineering and Mathematics. The candidate should have a good knowledge of statistics and the methods of estimating the uncertainty of measurement results. An understanding of the international standard ISO/IEC 17025:2005 “General requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories” would be advantageous.
Have extensive practical experience of calibration of TMDE, including diagnostic and rectification work. Ideally should have demonstrable knowledge and extensive experience in performing calibrations using primary standards. Should have well-developed problem solving skills and the ability to recognise discrepancies and invalid results.
The candidate should have a sound understanding and insight in the following areas:
- Mechanical disciplines of Pressure, Vacuum, Temperature, Humidity, Dimensional length and angles.
- The ability to develop software using Microsoft Excel, Metler Toledo and fluke or LabView
- A good understanding of RSAF MetCal processes and procedures, and a working knowledge of RSAF Supply and Maintenance procedures is necessary to assist in the internal Quality Control of PCS activities.
- Must be competent in the operation of Microsoft Office applications, especially Word and Excel, and have a good knowledge of English grammar, being able to prepare reports and letters to a high standard.
Should possess high standards of personal integrity, and be well-organised, self-motivated and methodical. The ability to communicate in a professional manner and be able to work with minimal supervision and to work well in a small highly technical team. Should possess a valid Saudi driving licence.
