Integration Engineer - Environmental
Fixed Term Contract: 2-4 Years
Location: Ankara, Turkey
Salary: NET Salary of £70k - £80k

Our client is working with an overseas aerospace customer in the development of a new Air Vehicle, we are seeking skilled Systems Engineers to join the in-country team. This opportunity would be ideal for those interested in the challenges faced in the early lifecycle stages of a programme and also the opportunity to work in a collaborative international environment.

The integration engineer will be employed on a 2+ year fixed term contract as part of the Systems Engineering team to support the planning, definition, implementation, and reporting of integration activities, in particular working with the Requirements and other functional teams to define environments, or combinations of environments to which the Air Vehicle could be exposed throughout its service.

Typically, a document is generated called environmental handbook. This will list the environmental requirements zone by zone around the aircraft (conditioned bay, unconditioned bay, fuel vapour bay etc.). When a piece of equipment is allocated a location, it will then need to comply with all the requirements from the handbook which will be translated into the specification. A key aspect of this role is working on the generation of this document.
