Jacobs employ some of the UK's most experienced and skilled technical services professionals and has grown to over 7,000 people in locations across the UK.

At Jacobs we provide the resources to turn great ideas into reality, and we're looking for the most talented and passionate individuals out there to be our next generation of leaders.

We currently have an opportunity for a Systems Engineer within our technical services team based in Barrow-in-Furness. The successful person will become part of a respected and ambitious company with excellent career prospects and international opportunities.
This role is offered on a part-time basis (i.e. 3 days per week) but we will consider full time (i.e. 40 hours per week) for the right candidate. Candidates will also need to have SC clearance or capable of achieving SC clearance.

The successful candidate will work within a small team embedded in a large MOD supplier's organisation to support the development of interfaces between the next generation ballistic missile nuclear powered submarine and the shore. These interfaces include electrical services, mechanical supplies, waste streams, and naval architecture amongst others. This role requires developing collaborative relationships with various platform designers to ensure they are fully informed of shore system constraints, and that relevant shore information is considered in the platform design. Information is managed via interface and requirements documentation.

Applicants will have knowledge and experience of delivering submarine engineering and/or support operations having either served in the Royal Navy or been in direct support thereof. Applicants will also be a member of or chartered with a professional engineering institution. The ability to develop relationships and manage multiple stakeholder groups is essential to deliver this role. Knowledge and experience of submarine systems is essential, and nuclear power generation, MOD/commercial design/procurement systems as well as requirements management is highly desirable.
