The Role:
Join us to be part of the driving force of Defence.

Our client pioneers the power that matter. When we talk about innovation within this business, it's essential we demonstrate how we do this. We don't just imagine great possibilities - we push boundaries at every stage and bring our innovative ideas to life through impressive engineering. This is how we create brilliance, which we should sell by letting the facts speak for themselves.
We're the second largest global provider of defence aero-engine products and services globally with 16,000 engines in the service of 160 customers in 100 countries. Our engines power aircraft in every major sector, including: transport, combat, patrol, trainers, helicopters and unmanned aerial vehicles.
To ensure we continue to be pioneers of our industry, our client has a team of over 16,500 engineers around the globe. They include everyone from world experts in their field to those who manage hundreds of people and millions of pounds worth of investments. We recruit engineers at all levels and in a range of disciplines. And while we encourage specialisation, we also offer freedom to cross-specialise and develop skills across a number of different areas for Defence.

Systems Architects are responsible for the architectural definition of new concept systems and products, required by our Defence business, including Aerospace and Marine.

As a System Architect you will create optimal architectures for complex systems, eg the function/logical/physical (Model-Based Systems Engineering) solution that satisfies the customer's overall requirement for a product. Activities include generating the Systems Architecture models that meet top-level requirements, flow-down top-level requirements to sub-system areas, and analysing and optimising system-level architectures

Essential Skills / Qualifications:
* You will be educated to degree level in a STEM subject and/ or have experience in a relevant engineering environment (Mechanical, Aeronautical, Electrical or Controls). Other qualifications, in combination with relevant experience, may also be considered
* Sound knowledge of requirements management including determining, managing & flowing system level requirements, understanding requirements from different viewpoints and impact of change.
* Experience in the architecture and design of systems using Systems Engineering principals, including the use of Robust Design techniques to achieve optimum solutions for the system of interest.
* Familiar with digital tools for design, analysis and automation of design processes, e.g. MBSE (Model-Based Systems Engineering)
* Ability to work accurately and at pace
* Good written and inter-personal skills.

The ability to achieve UK security clearance may be required for some roles.
