Our client is a highly successful global aerospace company, they are currently looking for a Systems Engineer (SysML) to work as part of a team on a new business improvement project. The project aims to provide a foundation to a model based systems engineering approach, describing the process to which the company will seek to adopt a model of requirements in a more cost-effective way. You will be working closely with simulation & modelling and the hardware/software teams, you will work initially on theoretical projects around new systems/ sub systems design and then in a couple of years you would sit in a systems engineering role tied to aerospace related products and be an expert on this new methodology which is being developed.   This role could suit a post graduate (second jobber) qualified engineer who has focused on systems engineering.
