The Dreadnought design and build programme is amongst the most complex ever undertaken by British industry. The new design of submarine is being developed jointly by Tier 1 industrial participants including our client. There is significant US input to the design of the Common Missile Compartment (CMC) - and the new submarine will exploit much of the most modern mechanical, electrical and nuclear technologies, employing a significant portion of the UK's engineers, project managers and technicians.

Our client is responsible for the in-service support aspects of the Programme, which are to manage the key aspects of the support structures to enable Dreadnought to dock with the in-service systems. This will ensure that the transition risk at post exit-Barrow is adequately managed. Our clients role throughout the Programme is to champion the in-service perspective, providing first-hand experience from supporting current submarines, and advising on the through life implications and supportability aspects of design and procurement options. This will further ensure that the factors critical to in-service are managed to ensure success.

Our client is responsible for assessing the Dreadnought design for its Supportability characteristics that are made up of three core principles; safe, available and affordable. These principles are assessed by Supportability Engineering that is underpinned by Integrated Logistic Support (ILS) methodologies to not only analyse the supportability of the design, but also in the development of the Support Solution. ILS is the management and technical process through which supportability and logistics support are integrated into the design of a system or equipment and taken into account through its life cycle e.g. maintenance planning (level of repair analysis, maintenance task analysis), supporting the supply chain, configuration, documentation, training, packaging, testing and evaluation. It is the WBSI's responsibility to develop a support solution that will demonstrably satisfy the requirements for safety, availability, and affordability.

The role is accountable for management, control and delivery of EITHER a single large and complex engineering project OR a collection of less complex projects.

At this level, projects feature the requirement to control and integrate are multi discipline tasks and work packages.

The role may be required to be a Technical / Design Authority, providing assurance for a complex project or range of assets. The successful candidate should ideally be a Chartered Engineer and Member of relevant institution, have an engineering degree or qualification in relevant engineering discipline, with significant demonstrable experience and demonstrable management experience.

Successful applicants will need a background to enable a SC Security Clearance
