Elbit Systems in the UK are a Defence, Technology and Aerospace company working on a range of technologies for both military and civilian applications. With six subsidiaries and two joint ventures we are engaged in a range of defence programmes in the UK.
You will be working with a team of experienced and talented individuals across multiple disciplines and in an organisation that not only has the benefit of a global presence, but as a subsidiary means you will work in a small team environment, that is increasing rapidly and with lots of opportunity for growth.
What we’re looking for;
Due to our recent success securing multiple new contracts, we now require talented individuals to join us on this exciting journey.
We're looking for an experienced Engineering Manager or Chief Engineer who has previously been involved in the delivery of CAT B or CAT A programme delivery for the UK MoD and sepcifically an individual that has been involved in the E2E delivery of training and simulation solutions or similar highly complex systems across Land, Sea or Air.
You will be part of a delivery team tasked with the design, development and deployment of a next generation training facility and simulator capability for future synthetic training. You will be working closely with the Programme Director, Project Managers and also managing a team of engineers, developers and PMO consultants to deliver the project on time and on budget to the customer.
As Engineering Manager you will represent Elbit in technical discussions and own key stakeholder relationships for the delivery, from liaison with the Royal Navy to ensuring alignment and contact with the consortium as delivery is undertaken.
This role will suit a team player who is able to support a high performing simulation team by providing technical leadership, producing progress reports and training new team members as well as managing key stakeholder relationships and client deliverables. You'll need to have strong stakeholder management skills and be able to liaise with sub-contractors, propose budgets and ensure the project is delivered on time.
This is an excellent opportunity to be part of a 10+ year delivery programme that will shape the future of maritime training solutions and also the continued growth of Elbit within the UK.

Elbit UK is at the forefront of technological innovation within our industry and as our presence grows in the UK, we want to recruit talented individuals to build a cohesive and diverse group on numerous projects. We offer competitive salary packages, flexible working hours, health care options, life cover, family friendly policies and a range of additional benefits including salary sacrifice schemes, discounts, access to Learning and Development tools and support for yours and your family’s health and wellbeing.
All the positions will be based full-time or with alternative flexible arrangement from our offices either in Bristol, London or home based (where the job allows).
