As part of the team within Naval Ships you will have the opportunity to work on some of the largest engineering projects in the UK. We have teams working on the Royal Navy’s two new Aircraft Carriers, HMS Queen Elizabeth, HMS Prince of Wales, which will be the backbone of the UK fleet for decades to come. We also recently delivered the advanced Type 45 Destroyers and our work is already underway on the Type 26 Global Combat Ship. You could be responsible for a range of electronic products and services throughout their entire lifecycle. One project may have you working with the latest technology available - creating inspired designs to be sure such innovation is used to its full potential, another may have you working on one of our shipyards to ensure existing technology is maintained correctly to guarantee its availability when urgent action is required.
What you will be doing
Sophisticated systems like ours don’t happen by accident. It takes the skill and dedication of thousands of electrical and electronic (hardware) engineers to make them a reality. Join us and you’ll make decisions about electronic product content, optimise hardware and software design concepts, develop sophisticated design processes and text complex products. Activities could include assessment of equipment behaviour and fault diagnosis, assessment of new technologies and components, conducting laboratory tests and capturing data, circuit/firmware simulation and modelling, data analysis, and the preparation of technical reports. Gaining exposure to the entire project lifecycle, you’ll play a key role in both maintaining our existing systems and developing new technologies.
Security / export control statement
Please be aware that many roles working for BAE Systems will be subject to both security and export control restrictions. These restrictions mean that factors including your nationality, any previous nationalities you have held, and/or your place of birth may limit those roles that you can perform for the organisation.
Diversity and inclusion statement
We are an inclusive employer. Recruiting, retaining and inspiring the best people from the widest pool is vitally important to us.
