The Boeing Portal in Fleet, Hampshire, houses the Strategic Experimentation & Analysis team whose role is to conduct Operations Analysis, Simulation and Modelling in support of Boeing UK and Europe. The purpose of the role is to work within an established team of Operational Analysts with experience in the Air, Maritime, Land, Cyber and Space domains, to deliver independent, focussed and defensible analysis on behalf of European governments and National Defence requirements. The analysis work undertaken within the Boeing Portal focusses on the provision of hard quantitative and qualitative evidence that can be used to support business cases for multiple high-level decisions across a broad portfolio of activities.

Candidates must therefore have a mathematical background and be comfortable with the provision of empirical evidence in the Defence and Security domains.

Platform Level Assessment: By applying a broad range of quantitative techniques to support customers in the down-selecting of platform options through the identification of suitable measures of effectiveness. The analysis must be robust and independent with the expectation that it will be used in support of external Customer Reports and Business Cases.

Cost Analysis: High level cost analysis of platform solutions to provide an empirical measure of comparison enabling cost-capability trade studies in support of customer prioritisation, in increasingly constrained budgetary environments.

Use of Operational Research: Statistics and Management Science techniques to provide qualitative and quantitative insights to enable decision support. Use of forecasting and optimization tools to provide Decision Support directly to a customer or to integrate them into Discrete Event Simulations as part of an Experimental Campaign.

Operational Research: Report writing and the incorporation of Operational Analysis Data into Customer Business Cases. Ideally you will hold a degree in a Mathematical or Science subject. You will also have an understanding of performing analysis within the defence sector.

The Operations Analyst is also required to perform the following:

• Learn and apply Project Management Best Practices to ensure Operational Analysis tasks and Campaigns are completed on time, to budget and at the agreed quality.

• Support the delivery, alongside senior analysts, of stakeholder management meetings and seminars, including the exploitation of Operational Research concepts such as Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis to capture decision support data.

• Support the preparation and participation of briefings to internal and external customers.

• Represent BDUK (in areas of domain expertise) at various internal and external events/conferences at Boeing sites and University events.
