MBDA Missile Systems - Deliver for a more secure tomorrow

An opportunity to join an exciting major project within MBDA and to help shape the design of the next generation cruise Missile and anti-Ship weapon systems. We require a versatile person to provide a pivotal role in the design of the Naval launch capability. This will involve interacting with multiple stakeholders to support the development of the MSS architectural design, sub-system requirements and interface specifications. As the project enters the Assessment Phase this role offers many personal growth opportunities such as the potential for team leadership roles, customer engagement, weapon system and sub-system design.

What we're looking for
  • A broad knowledge of Weapon Systems Design and a proven track record of working on a complex programme. In particular experience or knowledge of WS architectural design in terms of functional, performance, safety and security constraints.
  • Typically we would expect candidates to have an engineering or science degree or equivalent and have some relevant experience.
  • Previous experience in the aerospace or the defence sector would be useful, but is not essential: generally a background in systems engineering, product development, software development, or similar discipline would be suitable.
  • Hands-on experience of SysML, Rhapsody and DOORS tools would be highly desirable, but training will be provided where needed.
  • Experience of following Agile or spiral development processes would be desirable.

What's in it for you?
  • Gain knowledge and experience of designing and delivering a technically challenging and major complex weapon system.
  • Opportunity to develop a new network, internal and external to MBDA as well as internationally.
  • Practical experience of working on a Project that is driving the new ways of working in the business as part of NEXT.
  • An excellent opportunity for a candidate's personal growth as the project matures and progresses; there will be multiple follow-on opportunities both inside and outside the department and project.

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

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.
