"Being on the GLDP was a fantastic opportunity to learn about your own style and personality traits and how you can better adapt your approach to situations and people in the work place. It also provided a great network across the functions and the sites that I have been able to reach out to for support during my time at Raytheon."
"My job role has predominantly been in platform integration for Paveway IV, and during my time I have worked on the Tornado, Typhoon and more recently Protector Aircraft. I have also had many opportunities to work in our R&D projects and have helped qualify the Tactical Penetrator warhead, Anti-jam Module and Modular harness. My job has led me all over the world to support trials including Italy and over 8 states in the US.
I love the variety my job offers the engineering work we do varies all the way through the system life cycle. In more recent years I have become the lead engineer for the Protector programme and have been able to develop my knowledge in the more programmatic areas of work. The most recent opportunity I have taken is to lead the engineering team in our high energy laser programme as we develop a novel technology for user experimentation in the UK."
