Role Profile

As part of the team within Naval Ships you will have the opportunity to work on some of the largest engineering projects in the UK. We have teams working on the Royal Navy’s two new Aircraft Carriers, HMS Queen Elizabeth, HMS Prince of Wales, which will be the backbone of the UK fleet for decades to come. We also recently delivered the advanced Type 45 Destroyers and our work is already underway on the Type 26 Global Combat Ship. You could be responsible for a range of electronic products and services throughout their entire lifecycle. One project may have you working with the latest technology available - creating inspired designs to be sure such innovation is used to its full potential, another may have you working on one of our shipyards to ensure existing technology is maintained correctly to guarantee its availability when urgent action is required.

Gaining exposure to the entire project lifecycle, you’ll play a key role in both maintaining our existing systems and developing new technologies.

Overview of Business Unit

As an island nation, the UK has a proud history of world-class naval engineering. As part of our UK Maritime Sector, Naval Ships designs, builds and delivers complex warships and combat systems, and you could play a vital role in its future.
Our graduate opportunities span from engineering to project management to operations, and supply chain. You could join us as a naval architect and help shape the future of the fleet for a generation to come or, as a software engineer, programming the systems that sailors will depend on.

We’ve got great projects for you to work on, like the Royal Navy’s new Offshore Patrol Vessels or the Type 26 Global Combat Ship – a highly capable and versatile multi-mission warship designed to support anti-submarine warfare, air defence and general purpose operations anywhere on the world’s oceans.

Our combat systems are in operation in more than 20 countries around the world and this technology is vital in providing crew members with the information and capabilities they need to operate effectively, whether protecting the world’s shipping lanes or providing humanitarian relief.
