Aircraft Structural Repair Design Engineer
Organisation: Ministry of Defence
The MOD needs two experienced aerospace design engineers 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 fast jets such as the Hawk Trainer to the historic aircraft of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight. Your designs may be for the repair of metallic or composite structures, structural modifications of a minor nature or could be ad-hoc draughting tasks. You will need to substantiate your design 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. 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 organizations, manufacturers and suppliers. Depending upon experience you may need to attend mandatory training courses at various locations throughout the UK.
You will work 37 hours per week as part of our flexible working scheme and may also be eligible to apply for compressed working hours.
