Ever wondered who designs and makes the ejection seats in Top Gun and James Bond? That would be Martin-Baker Aircraft Company. A family owned, British Engineering Company supporting most of the air forces around the world, saving lives is our primary goal, every day. Martin-Baker supply escape systems that we design, develop, qualify, test, manufacture, deliver and support in service from our UK facilities based near London and Oxford.
At Martin-Baker Aircraft we are privileged to be part of an organisation whose sole purpose is dedicated to saving lives and producing world leading, ground-breaking safety escape systems for aircrew. It makes us immensely proud, to see the number of lives saved each year and know we have had a direct impact on ensuring that people working in some of the most challenging and dangerous conditions can rely on us in their moment of need.
We are looking for a data driven and enthusiastic individual to join our Direct Sourcing team at the Denham site in Middlesex.
The ideal candidate should be a student who is looking for a twelve-month placement as part of their undergraduate degree.
We encourage you to get your application in as early as possible, as we review candidates as they are received and so may fill the role before the closing date.
The Sourcing function is a fundamental part of our business and without it we would not be able to deliver our products to the customers.
To achieve this, we utilise the expertise of over 300 different suppliers, from parachute manufacture to the forming of raw aluminium, electronic equipment, and precision cut metal components. The Sourcing team are responsible for ensuring these suppliers can deliver to Martin-Baker on time.
Through this unique experience the successful individual will have the opportunity to visit and meet some of the critical suppliers to understand how their products integrate with our escape systems.
They will work across the Sourcing department supporting the business to ensure the most urgent and critical parts required are expedited to maintain the internal production flow. This will involve working cross functionally with Production Control, Manufacturing, Commercial and Quality departments to deliver the product.
