About The Role
Principal Research Engineer – Model-Based Systems Engineering
£47,700 - £59,733 DOE & Benefits 

Now in our tenth year, the NCC is undergoing an exciting growth spurt, and not just in composites. In the short time that’s passed since we won our first major digital programme, we’ve created a new Business Unit focussing solely on developing digital technologies into manufacturing applications, and we need engineers to support the wide variety of work that falls out of NCC Digital.

The growth is continuing, and this is where you come in.

As a Principal Model-Based Systems Engineer, you’re an expert in your field. You’re lead and develop the road map for the deployment of MBSE capabilities at NCC. A champion for model-based systems thinking, you’ll generate interest, awareness, skills and expertise across the business, and support the deployment of MBSE into live and upcoming projects.

This is your opportunity to join a rapidly growing business as a subject-matter expert. You’ll be the focal point for MBSE at NCC, with he responsibility and autonomy to establish a new technical toolkit within a world-leading organisation. Beyond the internal, you’ll establish partnerships with customers and will champion the NCC’s technical strategy to the outside world.

So what are we looking for?
  • You’ll have experience of applying systems engineering and MBSE in physical product development organisations, with a good understanding of engineering business processes
  • While owning a niche, you’re a team player, and understand the importance of embedding your technical know-how into a community of technical leaders – you’ll synthesise technical solutions with our current processes, and support the development of the NCC’s future 
  • You’ll have extensive knowledge and experience of a design or manufacturing environment. You understand the worlds in which MBSE is best embedded, and the potential challenges therein
Why the NCC?
We see our success in yours. The future of composites manufacturing relies on the NCC, and we rely on the right individuals to make it happen.
  • Diverse challenges – the NCC isn’t just about aerospace. We’re working with over 16 sectors and a variety of customers, from private ventures to the global tier 1 companies, providing variety to your experience
  • Innovation – a world-leading research and development centre, the NCC provides exposure to some of the most inspiring minds in the field of composites. The work we do brings novel and innovative solutions to industry, with the future firmly in mind
  • Development in composites, and you – if the scope of exciting work isn’t enough to sway you, our ethos of continued learning and development and flexible working patterns will.
We look forward to hearing from you.
