We are looking for creative and energetic individuals with a passion for making a difference. Different projects require different levels of technical support; this gives the role variety and interest, and so requires an adaptable person who enjoys collaboration with a wide range of stakeholders. Projects themselves can range from high-level feasibility studies, systems development, to physical demonstrator projects and real-world trials. Broadly, we cover typical systems engineering tasks. Modelling and simulation may also be used to support some of those activities.
