  • You will be joining a team with a strong pedigree in the delivery of safety and reliability engineering.
  • You will be working in a department spread throughout MBDA’s weapon system projects, gaining experience from other safety and reliability engineers.
  • You will have the opportunity to share in that experience and contribute to our learning as we continue to develop our approaches and techniques.
  • You will be able to influence systems as they develop from concept to delivery and gain first-hand experience of working with military customers.

Who and what we are looking for?

  • Ability to work within a multidisciplinary team.
  • Ability to work with ambiguity.
  • Desire to work in an international environment.
  • Future ambitions to lead a team or develop as a technical expert.
