Seekers Engineer - Graduate Programme

MBDA is a leading defence organisation that is proud to support our Armed Forces in protecting our nations. We collaborate with governments to achieve a shared goal of defending our freedom.

Salary: £30,000 plus a £3000 joining bonus .

Closing date for this role is midnight on Thursday 16th November

What we can offer you:
  • 2 year programme starting September 2024
  • Company bonus and twice yearly salary reviews
  • Pension of maximum total (employer and employee) contribution of up to 14%
  • 25 days annual leave (plus holiday purchase) and up to 15 days flexi leave
  • Fantastic site facilities, including subsidised meals and free car parking
  • Excellent career progression and development opportunities
  • Flexible working

Working pattern:

Security is a key consideration for the role and as such, the majority of your work will be conducted on site; a positive result of which is that our office remains a social and collaborative working environment. Nevertheless, there can be opportunities for home working depending on the nature of the task.

The Opportunity

The seeker is "the eyes" of every Missile; not just a collection of sensors, but a sophisticated integrated system which detects, identifies, and tracks targets. The seeker contains some of the most advanced technology in the Missile, and typically comprises around half of the development activity of a missile project.

The Seekers department is responsible for the design, development, integration and production of all radar seekers, including multi-mode seekers (combining radar (RF) and electro-optic sensors). Our work is especially broad, as we are the design authority for all aspects of the seeker product. The diversity of fields working together under one roof makes the Seekers department a unique environment for discovering, exploring, developing and specialising in a wide variety of highly technical and valuable areas of expertise. We therefore welcome equally diverse backgrounds and interests.

Seekers work across the whole product lifecycle so you'll see things start from research and development then progress to concept, design, integration and testing. Finally you'll see our products through to production and in-service support. You'll also see areas of the business that you may not expect, such as working on new business and bids or getting involved in field and flight trials. With such a range of lifecycle stages to cover, we offer a diverse range of placements. Some of these include:
  • System simulation and modelling.
  • Algorithm development.
  • Design and test of electronic and RF circuits.
  • Hardware and software integration.
  • Signal processing and data analysis.
  • Performance analysis, requirements and specifications.
  • Electromagnetic simulation.
  • Experimental lab testing.
  • Image processing and ray tracing.
  • Production support.

Working in this function, you'll find you use and advance your knowledge from university, applying it to technical challenges at the cutting edge of technology, in a department which never stops learning! We also work closely with many other teams, giving you exposure to even more areas across the industry. Seekers is an Anglo-Italian department so we work on numerous multinational projects which brings with it the opportunity to travel.

You'll also have the opportunity to work towards Professional Chartership with the IOP, IMA, IET, IMechE or RAeS, and we will also pay 100% of the fees whilst you are on the Graduate scheme.

What we're looking for from you
  • Degree qualified in a Physics, Engineering, Computing or Mathematics discipline (minimum 2.2)
