Tayla's tips on applying to MBDA

“It didn’t go well, but this is what I learnt from it – we’re interested in things like that as well.” Tayla Shelford, HR Advisor.

Customer Support and Services (CSS) is the MBDA customer facing organisation working with the RAF, Army and Royal Navy. We ensure our products are ready for action when required!

We have overall responsibility for the definition, development and delivery of support and service packages for all MBDA products, with the aim of continually being able to meet our customers' requirements.

Within this department you will see work right the way from concept phase through to disposal of a product - you'll even have opportunity to influence the design of what we produce to ensure it is supportable through its life!

Our Customers are incredibly important to us and you will be on hand to ensure that their requirements are met and the reputation of MBDA continues to prosper.

What's the opportunity?

The diverse nature of CSS means that there is the opportunity to work in very different roles and gain a broad understanding of the company, its products and our customers.

  • Design and developing the support solution
  • Investigate and resolve customer raised problem reports
  • Delivering specific engineering tasks
  • Running equipment workshops with RAF, Army, Royal Navy Users, Develop Technical publications and training
  • Assist in repairs which could be on-ship, at Customer premises or back at MBDA, there are plenty of chances to get out of the office and hands-on with equipment!

Supportability engineering - work in a development team on a new product.
Support engineering - work on a product currently in-Service with a Customer
Support Services - work with the Field Support & Training/Technical Publications/Supply teams.
A final placement can be in a department external to CSS; Engineering, Business or even external to MBDA, e.g. a secondment to the Ministry of Defence, a sub-contractor or even a defence think tank.
