We are recruiting for an Aircraft Stress Engineer on contract to work in our clients offices in Bristol 3 days per week and remote 2 days per week (Hybrid)

Working as part of an expert multiskilled team you will be responsible for static strength analysis and justification of metallic and composite structures.

Your primary role will be to work closely with design and F&DT (Fatigue and Damage Tolerance) engineers to assess and validate repairs to damaged aircraft structures. You will ensure adherence to airworthiness regulations, relevant design principles, processes, methods and manufacturing capabilities guidelines.

We are a dynamic multifunctional team delivering structural repairs and repair processes to support the fleet. We work closely together to provide complex repairs in support of planned major repair activities, Major Test programmes and fleet issues. We enjoy the challenge of creating and delivering repairs for any sort of damage, anywhere on the wing!

What you will be doing

Using approved methods and tools to perform structural static strength analysis of repairs. Creating and compiling justification reports and associated engineering documentation. Working closely with skilled designers to develop optimum repairs.

About You

You are a skilled aerospace structural analysis engineer, with experience of how airframe repairs are developed and justified. You enjoy working as part of a team to develop effective solutions to complex technical problems and ensure efficient delivery of tasks.

Essential Skills

Aerospace Engineering degree (or equivalent) and relevant engineering experience. Experience of static analysis of aircraft structures using a range of hand and computer methods. An understanding of the fundamental methods of static stress analysis and an ability to develop these methods. Knowledge and experience of using static strength analysis tools and methods (including ISAMI and Mathcad). Experience of compiling static strength justification reports to standards and ways of working. Good interpersonal and communication skills (both written and verbal).

Preferred Skills

Be conversant with technical requirements for repair design. Be comfortable working with and manipulating large datasets. Delegated signature for structural analy
