What do our Systems Engineers do?
Systems Engineering is a key technical discipline within QinetiQ. In fact, many of the chief engineers and other technical leads supporting areas of our business are Systems Engineers. Their expertise covers everything from the use of different lifecycle models and development methods (e.g. agile and model-based Systems Engineering), to the use of specific tools and notations. Day to day, they conduct requirements engineering, architecting, design, integration and test, evaluation and acceptance, and through-life support.
Varied career paths are therefore part of life at QinetiQ. You could specialise in a key skill or particular domain, or work on Systems Engineering across the business. With increasing demand for Systems Engineers across our international business, overseas opportunities are also a possibility. Secondments and other international working arrangements may be available with our subsidiaries in Australia, the USA, Canada, several European countries and the Middle East.
Opportunities for highly experienced Systems Engineers
We have a range of opportunities for high level Systems Engineers to join our Air Domain Teams with specialisms in Design, Technical Solutions, Aircraft Modifications and Enterprise. We are looking for individuals with Leadership Experience, Stakeholder Management, MOD/Military Experience as well as a genuine passion for the Air Domain to ensure the continued success within this field of expertise.
As a senior Systems Engineer, you can expect specialist training (which may include conference attendance and paper presentation, for example), and targeted mentoring to develop specific technical skills. If you have senior management potential, we'll spot and nurture it. However, to progress to more senior roles, you'll need to be an active member of an appropriate professional body,
Our Fellowship scheme recognises and develops professionals with high-level, specialist technical expertise.
