  • Robust capture and review of design artefacts as appropriate for all stages in the engineering lifecycle appropriate for managing existing systems and for taking concepts through to production.


Skills, Qualifications & Knowledge Required

  • Extensive experience of the Systems Engineering lifecycle, from development and management of requirements (preferably using DOORS) through to acceptance testing.
  • Experience leading Systems Engineering activity upon Bids & Proposals (knowledge of military and international specifications and standards is highly desirable).
  • Awareness of Functional analysis and Specification development is highly desirable.
  • Natural ability to work with other disciplines and external suppliers/customers.
