And as we research, develop and supply this cutting-edge technology to organisations, our services inadvertently impact millions of lives each and every day. And that’s where you come in. An engineer ready and willing to advance your career in every sense of the word ‘life-changing’.

As a Solutions Architect, you’ll be working at the absolute focal point for all design and framework. Essentially responsible for resolving issues, questions and conflicts across the entire system. Working alongside innovative colleagues, you’ll collaborate to deliver the best solutions for our Stakeholders.

Your key responsibility is the creation, management, promotion and delivery of all relevant architectures for a range of projects.

Your sound knowledge of combat systems in UK fleets will pair with your understanding of naval systems architecture and more general engineering safety management.

Customer and solutions driven, you’ll ensure we safely embrace our progress through all projects and processes.
