About The Role

Engineering Technical Leads - Aerospace 
Salary DOE & Benefits

We are entering an exciting phase of growth within the Aerospace team at the NCC as we embark on some major programmes that will have a large influence on the future of air transportation.

These are some of the most complex and challenging programmes we've ever faced, so we're looking for talented Technical Leads to help keep innovation on track.

Perhaps you're a senior technical influencer in a legacy business or visionary SME. Or a programme director looking for that next adventure. Or even a proven project engineer keen to move onto bigger things. In any case, you know that the NCC means innovation and the realisation of the new generation of composite technologies in some of the most exciting contexts. And you know you can deliver. 

So what are we looking for?

  • You have significant, practical experience of composites manufacturing within an Aerospace context, ideally focused on pre-production or R&D
  • You have a solid understanding of the full product life-cycle, from concept through to production
  • While we're interested in specialists of manufacturing, materials science, design/stress etc., you'll have a broad overview of all relevant engineering disciplines
  • You've led complex, multi-discipline aerospace projects in a technical capacity and worked closely with customer stakeholders 
  • While not essential, if you have specific experience within aero structures, propulsion, digital, hydrogen, sustainability or ceramic matrix composites, that's a bonus 

As a technical lead at the NCC, you’ll be responsible for delivering high standard of technical work, as well as helping to shape the future strategy of the organisation. In return you'll have the opportunity to set your legacy, and support some of the most exciting new developments in civil aircraft happening in the world today, helping to build the future for sustainable air travel. And with our commitment to internal development, who knows where a role at NCC could take you. 

You’re a forward-facing expert, with a record of technical excellence and a deep understanding of composites technology, its development, and its application in the future of industry. We’re the National Composites Centre, a world-leading manufacturing R&D company, serving a range of industries with innovative work.

 It sounds like we’re a good match. Apply now.
