Job description

Our client provides critical support to our customers in uncrewed systems experimentation and capability development. They have expertise to develop bespoke functionality and work closely with suppliers, customers and partners in the demonstration and evaluation of systems, including in the hands of user.

They are growing their team, initially with roles focussed on small/medium Uncrewed Air Systems (rotary and fixed wing), recognising this capability is integral to experimentation across Land, Air and Maritime sectors. This team will operate across sectors.

The growth includes roles such as

  • Functional Team Leader, who will have responsibility for coaching, mentoring and developing others, as well as directing and delivering the overall capability growth, including shaping the required operational infrastructure and competencies for safe delivery.
  • Systems Integration Engineers, who will understand the functionality and performance of an uncrewed air platform at a component and system level, and will be actively involved in integrating and upgrading components according to experimentation and trial needs.
  • Ux Trials and Experimentation Engineers, who will understand the macro-environment, including regulation and risk management across domains, and be able to devise experimental concepts, then write trials plans and deliver, acting (now or in the future) as Uncrewed Trials Safety Manager or Trials Lead.
  • Technical Leads, who can see the whole picture and lead project teams in development of proposals, and lead the delivery of capability demonstrations.

These roles sit within systems engineering practice, underpinning the system level view customers call on. You will work closely with others and often have direct contact with internal and external customers, including teams developing bespoke technology and looking for a route to demonstration.

There are opportunities at differing levels of experience; from seasoned leaders able to drive broad capability, to those looking to build on their existing uncrewed systems experience. The roles require varying degrees of working on site with equipment (locations across UK), and working away from home during trials; our approach is one of flexibility around the requirements of the work.
