Role Profile

As a Systems Engineer in the Complex Systems and Support part of BAE Systems Submarines, the ability to think logically and solve problems is more important that specific academic qualification or skills.

The candidate should be able not only to solve technical problems, but have the ability to predict where parts of a design or process are likely to be at higher risk of integration issues.

A general understanding of Systems Engineering and why this is beneficial to complex engineering programmes would be beneficial, but the candidate will learn the details of systems engineering once in role.

Overview of Business Unit

Our Submarines business has been safely delivering world class submarines to the UK Royal Navy for more than a century.
Today we are the prime contractor in the Astute programme and the UK’s only designer and builder of nuclear powered submarines – one of the world’s most complex engineering challenges. The first three submarines in the class, HMS Astute, HMS Ambush and HMS Artful, are now in service with the Royal Navy and the final four Astute class submarines are at various stages of construction at the Barrow site.

We are also the industrial lead for the Dreadnought programme, the Royal Navy’s next generation of nuclear deterrent submarines. Construction of the first of four submarines, named Dreadnought, began last year
Our Submarines business employs approximately 8,700 people and in 2017 we spent around £700m with over 700 suppliers.

All roles within Maritime - Submarines are restricted to British citizens who do not hold dual nationality. Unfortunately, if you do not meet these criteria it will not be possible to take your application any further.
