Overview:

The military operating environment is becoming more complex and new technological capabilities are required to ensure operational advantage. We believe that integration of Human Factors is critical to the development of safe, usable and effective weapon systems. The Human Factors department is responsible for ensuring that user capability is fully considered in the weapon system, from initial concept design through development and delivery to the customer.

You will be joining a team recognised by UK MoD as an industry leader in the delivery of Human Factors Integration where you be able to influence systems as they develop from concept to delivery and gain first-hand experience of working with military users.

Our team work transversally across MBDAs projects through the development life cycle providing capabilities to users across Land, Air and Sea with ongoing projects across Battlefield, Surface Attack, Deep Strike & Air Defence domains.

As a partner in FCAS AP we are also at the heart of providing the effects element of the Future Combat Air System (FCAS).

Responsibilities:

In your role you will be able to directly influence the development of these technologies, engaging directly with the user from early concept through to delivery ensuring that the human-machine relationship is optimised.

We are looking for a highly capable, versatile and enthusiastic Human Factors Engineer to undertake a full range of Human Factors tasks across weapon system concepting, development and research activities. Responsibilities include:

Conduct of Human Factors Integration through the development life cycle providing progressive assurance to the customer as per Def Stan 00-251
