The MOD needs an experienced aerospace design engineer to work within a small civilian design team at Royal Air Force Wittering. The work is varied, and you could find yourself working on anything from modern aircraft such as the Hawk, Typhoon or P8A to the historic aircraft of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.
Our design engineers produce aircraft structural repair design schemes and In-Service Design Changes for fixed wing military aircraft. Your designs may be for the repair of metallic or composite structures, structural modifications of a minor nature which may include the use of additive manufactured components or could be ad-hoc draughting tasks. You will need to substantiate your designs with supporting calculations and all work is necessarily checked for accuracy. Experienced designers who meet the essential criteria may be nominated as check signatories which attracts a market skills allowance of £ 3000.00 per year or as a Compliance Verification Engineer or Stress Note Signatory which will attract a market skills allowance of £ 5000.00 per year. The work requires travel to remote sites to carry out aircraft design surveys including measurements and photography, and this may require overnight stay. During your work you will liaise with aircraft delivery teams, repair teams, non-destructive test teams, external design organisations, manufacturers and suppliers. Depending upon experience you may need to attend mandatory training courses at various locations throughout the UK.
