Job description

As an Electrical Engineer, you will have the opportunity to join a large team of highly qualified electrical engineers. You will contribute to supporting the ongoing design, validation, test and verification for a number of critical submarine electrical systems.

What you will be doing
You will be responsible for delivering specific electrical engineering activities, benefits and improvements to the submarine build programme.

You will have the opportunity to experience and develop during placements in a number of roles within the electrical discipline, from power engineering, to control and instrumentation and also electrical and electronic communications.

As an electrical engineer you will turn ideas into products. You will be involved in the design, development and testing of complex electrical systems and equipment.

You will also be provided with the opportunity to experience a broad range of complex equipment and systems at different stages of the engineering lifecycle.

Placements will be structured and tailored to provide exposure to the different career paths within Electrical Engineering.

Overview of business unit
Our Submarines business has been safely delivering world class submarines to the UK Royal Navy for more than a century.

Today we are the prime contractor in the Astute programme and the UK’s only designer and builder of nuclear powered submarines – one of the world’s most complex engineering challenges. The first three submarines in the class, HMS Astute, HMS Ambush and HMS Artful, are now in service with the Royal Navy and the final four Astute class submarines are at various stages of construction at the Barrow site.

We are also the industrial lead for the Dreadnought programme, the Royal Navy’s next generation of nuclear deterrent submarines. Construction of the first of four submarines, named Dreadnought, began last year.

Our submarines business employs approximately 8,700 people and in 2017 we spent around £700m with over 700 suppliers.

All roles within maritime - Submarines are restricted to British citizens who do not hold dual nationality. Unfortunately, if you do not meet these criteria it will not be possible to take your application any further. This does not, however, exclude you from working for other parts of the BAE Systems organisation and further information regarding potential roles can be found here.

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.

What we are looking for

You must be eligible to work in the UK and be able to successfully achieve security clearance.
