Job Details

THE ROLE

Our Aerospace Technical Services Sector is now seeking to recruit multiple Engineers to support upcoming programmes of work. The Modelling and Simulation Engineers will work within a team responsible for producing a system models for the flight control and landing gear control systems for a new aircraft development and aircraft modification programmes. The work involves continued development of the system models, together with the integration of the models in a test platform, and carrying our model analysis to further assist the system design.

The ideal candidates will be educated to degree level or equivalent in a related discipline (preferably Aerospace Engineering, Mechanical Engineering or Mathematics) and must be able to demonstrate a good understanding of fundamental modelling principles of systems. The candidate must have relevant industrial experience within the aerospace sector and must have a good knowledge of engineering analysis and simulation tools, particularly Matlab/Simulink. The successful candidates will have strong interpersonal skills and have the ability to work independently and within teams of engineers.

KEY ACCOUNTABILITIES
