Sws Field Engineer (navigation)

Helensburgh, United Kingdom

Job Description

About the Role
Are you a hands on Electro/Mechanical Engineer? Are you interested in a career where your work is really meaningful and helps deliver a major defence programme of national importance? Yes? Great, then we’d love to hear from you!

Upon joining our Strategic Systems business you will join the SWS Navigation team and will quickly become a key member of the team delivering critical corrective, preventative maintenance for the Navigation sub-system. You will predominantly use electronic and electrical engineering expertise as well as some mechanical to maintain a variety of specialist and complex systems that form the Navigation sub-system on Vanguard class submarines. As a part of this you will occasionally go to sea on the submarine for short periods of time to help test the systems so get the opportunity to see the results of your work in use.

In future, when appropriate, the role may occasionally involve travel to other UK and USA sites to meetings, training and maintenance support as required.

We pride ourselves on mission focused innovation, where performance excellence is at the heart of everything we do, and this opportunity will allow you to work on unique and interesting systems to some of the highest standards of excellence at one of the only places in the UK where this kind of work is done.

We’ll provide you with meaningful work that will allow you to grow your skills and enhance your career with us, but equally important to us is that you enjoy a strong work life balance as well. That’s why we offer flexible work schedules and a comprehensive benefits suite to enable you to live a healthy fulfilling life at and outside of work. Our 9-day working fortnight is a particular favourite amongst the team, giving you every other Friday off, to spend more time doing the things you enjoy!

So if you are interested in joining a growing team who are part of a programme of national importance then there has never been a better time to apply! We may not know what's going to change the world next, but chances are we're already working on it, and you can be part of the story too!
