Are you an experienced Principal Systems Engineer, with at least 10 years within Avionics/Aerospace, who is either interested in getting into contracting or is looking for a new contract?

Ford & Stanley Interim - are working with one of the UK’s most interesting engineering services business who offer contractors long term security across multiple clients and industries, providing variety, ongoing professional relationships and engineering challenges.

With a business model that is going to challenge traditional UK Engineering consultancies, my client offers engineering support to its customers which places priority on having local based experts who can represent their organisation in a positive way, ensuring that their integrity and capability is always held in high regard.

This particular contract is going to be an initial 6-month contract working in the rail sector and is highly likely to roll over for a minimum 12-month period but should extend beyond that.

As mentioned, we are currently looking for contract Systems Engineer from Senior through to Principal level for the following requirements:
