The Global Chief Engineering Office provides support to the Engineering teams across the sites in all business units.

The contract life-cycle involvement covers bids, product development and support and airworthiness.
The successful candidate will be responsible for providing support to the CE in the above activities through the reviewing of customer documentation, participation in bid reviews and discussions on processes development, and preparation of supporting documentation for each of these as directed. During the technical evaluation process the candidate may be required to develop the technical solution alongside the site engineering teams.
Therefore a working knowledge of standard aerospace toolsets (CATIA for design engineers, Mathcad/NASTRAN/PATRAN for stress engineers) will be required. They will also assist in the co-ordination of a robust network of site contacts to ensure support is given to any proposal that requires it, wherever the location.

"ability to listen and understand quickly;
"interpersonal skills, particularly with customer;
"flexibility and willingness to travel, nationally and internationally;
This is an exciting opportunity to join a progressive company who focus on employee development.
