Contract

A well-known body in the defence industry that does the majority of R&D for the UK armed forces is looking for a Senior Scientific Challenges Specialist/ practitioner to work at their site in the South East. They are offering a long term contract of 3 years so you can get job secure for the foreseeable future and past all the turmoil that BREXIT will bring.

Job offers:

  • Work in one of the most secure sites in the UK, run by the military with mainly ex-forces or currently serving personnel who do look after each other on site.
  • Work on a long-term defence project that will come to fruition in 3 years time, after which it will carry onto either a further research stage or a procurement stage. Having worked on it for a while will give you priority for any contracts.
  • Keep your DV clearance, as the role requires high-level clearance to work due to unrestricted access to sensitive information. You can get to keep it safe and then will be able to transfer it when the contract ends.

Job Requirements:

  • Knowledge of one or more of the following areas: electronics, forensic science, explosives and chemistry.
  • Good working knowledge of Arabic languages and Middle Eastern culture
  • Current knowledge and recent experience of military systems, the operational situation, improvised threat devices and Intelligence data, information and sources
