Systems Engineers are recruited across a full range of businesses and sites – they are needed to establish and manage requirements, develop architectures, generate system designs and partition solutions down to constituent products and components. Our systems engineers might oversee detailed development, complex Systems Integration, and assist in managing sub-contracts, and they integrate and verify our products through to delivery and beyond.
Quality Engineering / Quality Assurance
Members of our Quality Assurance (QA) department work independently, yet alongside Engineers of all disciplines to ensure the highest levels of standards and processes are applied in delivering products for our customers. We recruit for all of our sites, where vacancies might address a need for quality support to any of our software, hardware or systems developments. QA recruits can operate in support of manufacturing or development activities; there is an ongoing need for their involvement at all stages of a product’s lifecycle.
Specialist & Lifecycle Engineering
In addition to the disciplines outlined above, Raytheon UK continues to recruit specialist roles that are necessary to deliver its products. These include – but are not limited to:
- Integrated Logistics Support
- Techincal Publications Authors
- Configuration and Data Management
- Human Factors
As well as meeting its engineering discipline needs – Raytheon UK continues to need engineering leadership positions filled at many levels. Engineering leadership roles are employed across all of our businesses and on all of our sites. For all engineering disciplines, Raytheon UK needs engineers who are highly capable of team leadership roles. It also needs more experienced engineers who can fill key engineering management positions. We employ engineers to co-ordinate engineering activities on larger projects – our “Programme Engineering Managers” – and we need senior engineers to help organise and run the engineering department. Engineering leaders help to set the strategy for the whole function, for our businesses and so for the whole organisation. To support innovation and inform the setting of strategy, Raytheon UK careers seek to ensure that technical leadership is acknowledged alongside programme management skills.
