Where the STEM jobs are
Gradcracker works here's the proof
Major Equipment Procurement (MEP) is responsible for defining, managing and maintaining our international supply chain. Without the support of its large network of Suppliers, we would not have the capability to design, manufacture and support our world leading weapon systems. Unlike typical commodity based procurement organisations, MEP is responsible for procuring the bespoke major sub-systems in each weapon system. The supplier is the Design Authority for this sub-system such as Motors and Power Supplies.
We develop and manage successful long term relationships with each of our Suppliers to ensure we obtain capability, value, and on time delivery throughout the life of MBDA’s products.
We are involved throughout the lifecycle of products; from the initial concept right through to the ‘In-Service’ and ‘Disposals’ stages. Throughout, there is a need to manage each Supplier’s contractual, technical, pricing and performance aspects. This offers you the opportunity to develop a large skill set and experience a wide range of scenarios.
The role is very diverse, and your specific responsibilities will vary depending on the maturity of the project. You will be the primary liaison between MBDA and your assigned Suppliers, responsible for managing the relationship, contractual terms and conditions, and ensuring that the Supplier meets their agreed deliveries.
Responsibilities can vary from initial Supplier selection through to procuring support services with existing suppliers for in service weapon systems.
The MEP environment is dynamic, with diverse and fast moving requirements, each of which will prove stimulating but a rewarding experience.
