Competitive Salary and Benefits


I'm currently working with a market leading defence company and an opportunity has arisen to join their team, lending your safety and system engineering skills to influence the safety aspects of their technically complex and challenging products.

In this role you will need to balance time and cost constraints to ensure that a safety case, comprising appropriate evidence, is constructed.

To do this, you will need to understand the system and its operating context, so that you can decide what type of evidence will most cost-effectively show that the identified hazards have been mitigated to the customer's satisfaction.

  • Thorough understanding and experience of how the hazard analysis process integrates with the system engineering process to influence the design.

  • Ability to deliver supporting information (Safety Case Reports, Hazard Analysis, Functional Failure Analysis, FTA, etc).

  • Good verbal, written communications analytical and problem solving skills.

  • Track record as an effective team player with strong interpersonal and influencing skills and the ability to work as part of a multi-disciplinary / multi-national team.

  • Detailed electronic engineering experience is highly desirable.

    Experience of other engineering disciplines (design, software, manufacture, etc.) is also desirable.
