Product Quality Assurance
As Europe's leading guided weapons company, MBDA continually look to broaden our existing talent base whilst maintaining a strategic edge.
MBDA continues to strive towards bringing together the best skills and candidates across Europe and indeed the UK, and although the primary focus is to bring employees here on a permanent basis sometimes business requirements dictate the need for subcontract staff to fill shortfalls or indeed identify specific niche skill sets.
Therefore if you would like to be considered for any subcontract opportunities within MBDA you will need to contact any of our recruitment partners.
