BAE Systems is offering exciting Graduate Opportunities - Naval Architecture, UK

12/12/2014 2:11 PM

As a Naval Architect, you won't just be involved in the design of vessels but will be able to get involved with aspects of manufacture through to launch, test and commissioning.

Naval Architecture is a whole boat engineering discipline. This means that as a Naval Architect you'll not only be involved in the design of vessels, but also all aspects of manufacture right through to launch, test and commission. In the case of our businesses, you'll work to ensure that our surface ships and submarines do what they should do. A large part of the work involves computer based design. However, you'll also get extensively involved in other activities too - such as computer simulation modelling and physical model tank testing. Welcome to Naval Architecture in the real world.

What you'll need

To succeed in this area, you'll need a minimum 2:1 Bachelor's degree in Naval Architecture for our graduate scheme or on course for achieving a 2:1 for our undergraduate schemes. In addition, you need to be eligible to work in the UK and be able to successfully achieve security clearance. In terms of personal qualities, you'll also need strong organisational ability and excellent communication skills. You'll know how to collaborate effectively with a wide range of internal and external customers. As a company committed to talent, we welcome applications from a diverse range of people, from all backgrounds and with many different skills, experience and perspectives.

Where could you be?

Maritime - Naval Ships: By joining us, you'll be working on projects that will help safeguard our nation for generations to come, including the Royal Navy's new Offshore Patrol Vessels and Type 26 Global Combat Ships, while also being a part of our exciting transformation into a world class naval engineering business. Your time with us as a Naval Architect will be structured to give you the maximum benefit, working on varied projects from concept design and development, conducting feasibility studies, detailed production and beyond to in-service support.

Maritime Services: Maritime Services Naval Architects are based in Portsmouth Naval Base, home to 60% of the Royal Navy Surface Fleet. Our Naval Architects provide worldwide 'in service' engineering support to Royal Navy and commercial ships and facilities. Working closely with the Dock masters, the Naval Architects produce docking preparation drawings prior to all dockings in the Naval Base and calculate docking conditions. They supply consultancy services to the UK Ministry of Defence which include conducting regular inclining experiments, performing structural analysis using finite element software and stability analyses using ship modelling software.

Maritime - Submarines: Join our team and you can look forward to being responsible for all hydrostatics and hydrodynamics. You'll also be the docking authority for our vessels which include every submarine currently in service with the Royal Navy. We'll look to you to play a critical role in helping to build the Astute Class submarine and work with our partners to design the next submarine platform - some of the most exciting engineering projects in the world today.

Which scheme?

Graduate Development Framework (GDF): This two year graduate scheme develops people who are passionate about and show great potential in their chosen field in Maritime Services - Portsmouth Naval Base, Maritime Naval Ships - Glasgow or Portsmouth or Maritime Submarines - Barrow. Through a mix of study and on-the-job training in multiple placements, you'll steadily acquire the skills and experience needed to become a Naval Architect. Starting salaries range between £25,000 and £28,000 dependent on relevant work experience and academic qualifications. While on the scheme you'll also receive 6 monthly salary and performance reviews and be supported to work towards chartered engineer status e.g. with the globally renowned Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA).

Summer Internship: Available in Maritime Submarines - Barrow and Maritime Services - Portsmouth Naval Base, this is a 12 week internship (29 June 2015 - 18 September 2015), certified by EAL (the specialist, employer-recognised awarding organisation for the engineering, manufacturing, building services and related sectors), which will give you the chance to put theory into practice, learn from colleagues who are experts in their field, and gain insights that can only come from real world experience. During the internship you'll also receive a salary of £16,800 per annum pro-rata.

Learning and development

We'll encourage and support you to realise your potential. You'll have the opportunity to learn from colleagues who are experts in their field, and gain insights that can only come from real world experience.
