Activities will include all aspects of the Systems Engineering lifecycle from System Concept through to Delivery and Acceptance, including Bid Support, System Design and System Integration.

 

Applicants are required to be flexible in their approach to work, as every project and support issue presents different challenges. Applicants must also possess an aptitude for problem solving and have an eye for detail.

 

JOB FUNCTIONS:

 

·         Activities will include all aspects of the Systems Engineering lifecycle from System Concept through to Delivery and Acceptance, including Bid Support, System Design, Integration, Verification and Customer Acceptance.

·         You will be responsible for the specification, development, integration, verification and acceptance of systems for both Internal and External Customers.

·         You will have the ability to deal with a variety of people from different disciplines, organisations and nationalities on a daily basis to deliver the systems engineering aspects of projects, as required.

·         You will take an active role in the definition, realisation and proving of new products which build upon Kelvin Hughes’ reputation for innovation and leading edge technology.

·         You will manage stakeholders throughout the system lifecycle through a pro-active approach and effective communication.

EMPLOYEE COMPLIANCE:

 

·         The job holder will be expected to comply with any reasonable operational instruction or procedures relating to Company policies, reporting and controls. In particular Section 7 of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 provides a duty on every employee, while at work, to take reasonable care for the health and safety of themselves and of other persons who may be affected by their acts or omissions at work.

·         It also places a duty on employees to cooperate with their employer so far as is necessary to enable their duties to be complied with including the appropriate use of personal protective equipment (PPE)

·         Failure to comply with this duty may result in the Company invoking the disciplinary procedure.

·         The flexibility to apply skills and knowledge across a number of different projects and products across the organisation.

·         Computer literate with a good standard of written English, capable of compiling accurate, detailed and well-presented technical proposals, specifications and reports.

·         A willingness to travel. (NB whilst this role is based at our Enfield premises, a certain amount of business travel will be required depending upon project requirements).

 

Desirable (Not Essential):

 

·         An understanding of Radar Systems is desirable, although not essential if other complementary skills demonstrate a capacity to understand new technologies quickly and effectively.
