BAE Systems is looking for a Consultant Engineer to join the Electrical Power team, acting as the technical lead for power and propulsion systems design.
This role will give you the opportunity to heavily shape the design of one of the most complex engineering programmes ever undertaken in the UK, as power system design has an influence on almost every system on board. This makes is a critically important part of the overall project.

Influencing senior management by understanding systems and project risks and needs
Capturing and influencing design requirements to meet customer, business, and programme demands
Ensuring Power department remains on track to deliver technically, and ultimately ensuring the submarine design enables it to perform the functions it is required to, such as diving and surfacing, and performing capably in required environments
