About The Role

£48,893 to £61,226 DOE & Benefits

The National Composites Centre is at the forefront of the composites revolution.

Our story has been one of continuously striving to be bigger and better. In composites, that means thinking outside of the box. We’ve taken some steps to bring cutting-edge technologies to new sectors before, but really, as we reach the end of our first decade, we’re just getting started.

As Deputy Chief Engineer you will ensure technology research programmes deliver against the needs of industry, in key strategic areas such as sustainability, hydrogen and digital engineering, which are crucial to the future competitiveness of the UK. 

You'll lead some of our major programmes, working with senior PMs and engineers from across the business to ensure technical excellence in delivery.

You’ll need to have a strong foundation as a researcher in technology development, especially in the field of composite materials, and the drive to impact if you are to be successful. 

So what are we looking for?

  • Leadership of technical programmes - You have some experience as a technical leader, with a record of ensuring high technical standards in work packages. Composites are not absolutely essential but desirable
  • Technology - while composites aren't essential, experience with research and product development are
  • Strategy – Experience of aligning industrial requirements with engineering technologies to position the NCC for future growth

 

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, 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

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.

 

At the NCC, equality and diversity is more than just a box-ticking exercise, and we take the equal opportunity of individuals very seriously. We ensure that all hiring decisions are made without regard to age, race, national origin, sex, gender, gender identity, religion, or any other protected characteristics, and will treat all applications in the strictest confidence. We’re always open to hearing how we can support flexible working in different ways, including part-time working. Please don’t be afraid to ask about what we can do to support your needs, all requests will be carefully and fairly considered. We wish you every success in your job search.
