This particular role functions within their marine and technology division and primarily focuses on engineering support for the Royal Navy

The successful Non Conformance Engineer will be responsible for assessing and recommending sentences for non-conformities arising during the manufacture of Weapon Handling and Launch System (WHLS) equipment for the UK and Overseas Navies. This may also include assessment of issues arising during build.

You will need to work with manufacturing teams, analysis teams, Chief Engineers and supply chain to effectively explain the reasoning behind sentences and make clear what any required re-work involves.

Skills and Experience:
