Job Description

My client, a world leader in the defence sector, requires an EW Systems Specialist to join their team working on the specification, acquisition and test of cutting-edge RF sub-systems for integration into complex weapons systems, with a focus on EW technologies.

EW Systems Specialist

The EW Systems Specialist will work across a wide variety of projects, ranging from fundamental research through to product development for customer programmes. You will work in a team with extensive experience of RF systems and subsystems with access to major testing facilities and design tools needed to supply state-of-the-art solutions. This role will involve technical customer engagement at a senior level, so you will need to be able to demonstrate the ability to engage a contrasting range of stakeholders.

The role will include:
*Sub-system performance prediction and assessment.
*Support to development and in-service trials and activities.
*Sub-system qualification and validation.
*Requirements definition and management.
*Resolution of customer and trials-related queries.
*Interfacing with the supplier, customer community and its agencies.

To be considered for this role, applicants will need to be degree qualified in a relevant subject such as Electronics Engineering, with significant experience in a Systems Engineering role, focusing specifically on EW (Electronic Warfare) technologies. Ideally you will also have previous experience of working with RF systems and/or component design.

You'll be able to take responsibility for your own contribution, controlling your own timescale and budget and will ideally have experience of working in international or cross-cultural teams.
