Hybrid working pattern: Where possible, we will seek to accommodate a blended approach to on-site and remote working – such as being onsite when necessary to work with people and collaborate, then working from home and around family commitments to be your most efficient.

This role could be full time or part time, 4 or 5 days per week. We are flexible and accommodating. It would be beneficial to be on-site 2 or 3 days a week, depending on the project needs and working remotely other days.

We are supported by Project Controllers for scheduling in P6. And we mentor our Engineering Project Coordinators, who support your work across a portfolio of projects.

The role has a defined development path towards Delivery Lead and Sector Lead, each looking after a larger portfolio of projects and teams of project managers and greater customer management responsibilities.

MBDA offers incredible development and career opportunities.  We believe that any individual with a learning mindset and belief in what we do can make a difference here.

There are creative opportunities in MBDA, for example, to take part in outreach representing Electronics Engineering in your community and becoming in involved in women-in-engineering events.

What we're looking for from you:
