Hybrid working pattern: Where possible, we will seek to accommodate a blended approach to on-site and remote working - such as being onsite when necessary to work with people and collaborate, then working from home and around family commitments to be your most efficient.

We are supported by Project Controllers for scheduling in P6. We mentor our Engineering Project Coordinators who support your work across a portfolio of projects.

The role has a defined development path towards Senior EPM and Delivery Lead, each looking after a larger portfolio of projects and teams and greater customer management responsibilities.

We believe that any individual with a learning mindset and belief in what we docan make a difference here.

There are creative opportunities in MBDA, for example, to take part in outreach representing Electronics Engineering in your community and becoming involved in women-in-engineering events.

What we're looking for from you:

Someone with drive, passion and commitment who has:
  • A demonstrable background in the engineering development of electronics units
  • Experience of Project Management best practice: Risk Management, Stakeholder Management, Compliance Management, Configuration Management and Earned Value Management.
  • Experience of delivering significant project/programmes on time and to cost.
  • Experience of project management across the various phases; from project conception & initiation through manufacture & qualification to customer delivery.
  • Individuals with excellent communication skills; able to influence others to their way of thinking;
  • Organised with an eye for detail and a sense of pride in what they deliver.

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.
