  • Up to 15 days flexi leave
  • 25 days annual leave (plus holiday purchase)
  • Fantastic site facilities, including subsidised meals, free car parking and gym on site at Stevenage

Hybrid working pattern: Your contractual place of work will be our Stevenage site, but where possible, we will seek to accommodate a blended approach to on-site and remote working including in our Bristol and Bolton offices if project requirements and logistics allow.

The Opportunity:

Do you have the drive and ability to deliver your expertise across multiple, technically challenging projects?

You will have the opportunity to work on a wide variety of projects that are pivotal to the future success of MBDA and the security of the UK.

Attendance at the Stevenage site is mandatory but our Dynamic Working Agreements also allow high levels of flexibility and a balance of office and remote working. This may be at home and, subject to local agreement and logistics, in other MBDA UK offices such as Bristol or Bolton.

What we're looking for from you:

Essential:
  • Degree qualified in a subject relevant to the role or demonstrable equivalent experience.
  • Good problem solving skills coupled with a sound fundamental knowledge of heat transfer analysis using computational methods and manual calculations.
  • Experience applying CAE tools (e.g. ANSYS, MATLAB, Python) to investigate heat transfer problems.

Desirable:
  • Post graduate qualification in a subject relevant to the role.
  • Demonstrable experience leading and managing small teams in the delivery of projects.
  • Knowledge and experience of methods for managing the thermal performance and validation of mechanical and electronic systems.

Our Business:

We respect new perspectives and experiences, and we value our collaborative ways of working. We are committed to growing and supporting diversity in our workforce and ensuring everyone has an equal opportunity to reach their potential.

We recognise that everyone is unique, and we encourage you to speak to us should you require any advice, support or adjustments throughout our recruitment process. We also welcome applicants who are looking for flexible working arrangements.
