About The Role

Network Engineer
Up to £44,954.65 DOE & Benefits

The National Composites Centre is at the forefront of the composites revolution. We’re accelerating exciting and innovative new technologies and working with industry to make the future of light-weighting materials a reality. But any world-leading engineering company (and especially such a techy one) needs a world-leading IT team to keep the cogs turning. This is where you come in.

We’ve launched a campaign to invest in and significantly strengthen our IT capability, the likes of which we’ve not seen since we were set up 10 years ago. We’ve secured some amazing new talent, but now need to focus on bringing in Network Engineer's to make the next phase of our development a success.

What do we have planned? We’re preparing to work with some high-profile customers on secure work packages, which means upgrading our CyberEssentials accreditation to CyberEssentials+. We’re also expanding our IT Capability as part of a wider investment, so beyond the short-term goals, there’ll be a wider strategic outlook and a pipeline of exciting projects to consider. This role will offer the opportunity to support and assist in the development of novel wired and wireless 4G and 5G networks, evaluating, testing, and troubleshooting technologies to be included into corporate & research IT networks to support the NCC business strategy on Digital Engineering

You will have  experience of working in a networking/Security role, as well as this you will be CNNA qualified or have an equivalent certification. Ideally you will have commercial awareness and the ability to effectively manage supplier estimates and costs. 

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, whether they’re engineers or not!

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 work we do brings novel and innovative solutions to industry, with the future firmly in mind. So we need innovating thinking not just in Engineering, but across all support functions (IT included!)

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.
