- Strong engineering skills where a background in either systems engineering, electronics design, embedded software or firmware is desirable
- DV cleared or willing and eligible to go through the DV clearance process
- You will acquire an in-depth knowledge of some of MBDA's latest technology and influence how it is exploited in our products as well as be able to influence what is required from these technologies in the future
- You will experience a broader range of engineering tasks than are usually undertaken by a single role holder on a typical project, gaining skills that would otherwise require a secondment or departmental transfer to acquire
- This role will provide a range of demonstrable experiences for those working towards chartered status
Join a great team!
- Task package management of activities utilising multi-disciplinary engineers spanning across the Engineering Directorate to design and deliver a comprehensive technical security solution within the budget and timescale set out for the task.

- Liaising with manufacturing and support teams to ensure the confidentiality and integrity of the missile/weapon system is maintained through manufacture and in the various through life support scenarios that may be offered to a Customer.
- Ensuring the Need to Know principal is adhered to and sufficient controls are in place to manage the knowledge of the technical implementation, providing direction on the release of information to Suppliers and Customers, where required.
