The Job

Helping the best become even better. The UK's armed forces are dependent on having a wide range of equipment available to them to carry out their duties. Ships for the Royal Navy, vehicles for the Army, planes for the RAF, or a host of others, they are all vital. Being able to design and put in place the most effective support arrangements for military equipment through-out a life-time that is often 20 to 30 years is a demanding challenge for DE&S and we need people who can work with our existing support teams to assist them in adopting the latest methods and processes.


You will act as an internal consultant to analyse the support requirements for a wide range of equipment from missiles to nuclear. Understand the necessary performance, design the optimal support system, and act as a business change agent with the existing team to allow their adoption of your conclusions. Because of the demanding nature of the role we need people who are already good at what they do but want to be better.

You will clearly demonstrate experience in the practical application of Business Operations Management, Equipment Support Systems processes, or In-service support in a leadership capacity. Practical experience of managing successful behavioral business change is essential. Crucially our people need commitment to working across the whole Team to achieve our objectives; flexibility in face of changing requirements; willingness to develop our clients' performance so they can gain credit; drive to develop creative & innovative solutions to our work; capacity to work towards successful achievement of demanding targets & ambitious objectives; and willingness to learn from both positive & negative experiences.

If you are the right person for the job we will enter you into our internal development programme. This not only means giving you demanding on-the-job experience, but we will also put you on a Master's level 7 study programme in the field, typically for your first two years. Additionally, you will gain professional and academic qualifications in Management Consulting, culminating in the award of the internationally recognised Certified Management Consultant after three years' experience.

Once you have successfully completed your professional development, in addition to any annual performance related pay awards we will uplift your salary by £3000. To be able to make full use of the training opportunities you will need to meet the entry requirements for the MSc programme, ideally a degree or equivalent in engineering, logistics, or business. Alternatively, you will have other qualifications with appropriate work experience.
