Job Description

The Configuration and Design Data Management capability in Bristol is responsible for ensuring that Defence UK maintains control of its product definition data throughout its lifecycle through implementation of Configuration Management principles. Configuration Management is the discipline through which a project provides assurance to its customers and governing authorities of product safety and integrity. This is achieved through documenting the functional and physical characteristics of the Product, controlling changes to those characteristics, and providing information on the state of change action. The Configuration Engineer delivers this accountability by managing product configuration information assuring its data integrity through the construction and maintenance of Product Structures and Bills of Material, the creation and documentation of baselines at key stages of the Product lifecycle and the authoring of change modification documentation.

Rolls-Royce pioneers the power that matter. When we talk about innovation within this business, it's essential we demonstrate how we do this. We don't just imagine great possibilities - we push boundaries at every stage and bring our innovative ideas to life through impressive engineering. This is how we create brilliance, which we should sell by letting the facts speak for themselves.

We're the second largest global provider of defence aero-engine products and services globally with 16,000 engines in the service of 160 customers in 100 countries. Our engines power aircraft in every major sector, including: transport, combat, patrol, trainers, helicopters and unmanned aerial vehicles

  • Perform review of proposed product definition changes to assure structure integrity in support of the design technical approval process.
  • Control product definition changes to the engineering product structure and bills of material according to the product lifecycle stage, in both part number listing and visual formats.

The role works closely with the project teams and design organisation along with interfacing with the supply chain, commercial partners and customers. The Configuration Engineer needs to assess inputs received and discuss impacts with the relevant stakeholders. Maintaining data integrity is vital to this role so attention to detail, robustness and customer focus are important qualities.

  • A degree level in a STEM subject and/ or have experience in a relevant engineering environment (Mechanical, Aeronautical, Electrical or Controls). Other qualifications, in combination with relevant experience, may also be considered.
  • Configuration Management CMII certification desirable.
