Principal Engineer – Compressor Design

Role: Principal Engineer – Compressor Design  

Role Purpose:

To manage the Compressor Design team delivering a wide range of Compressor solution from all the Gas Turbine Modules, carrying out challenging programs of work on state of the art Gas Turbine engines. The roles offer opportunities for developing skills, knowledge and experience in this exciting industry. 
The Compressor Design team delivers engineering solutions for all Gas Turbine Engine modules. This role requires a broad knowledge of a range of engineering disciplines and the ability to lead and integrate specialist teams to deliver Compressor solutions on a range of Developmental and NPI Aero Engine projects.

  1. Technically manage the Compressor Design team to deliver Instru Solutions from all the Aero Engine modules.
  2. Ensure the instru design meets the appropriate levels of quality and robustness and confirm that defined requirements are met.
  3. Technically own and drive the Compressor design team.
  4. Plan and coordinate the Design Iteration activities with the Development and Experimental Engg teams.
  5. Ensure that all project stakeholders have the right information at the right time, through pro-active communication.
  6. Working in a UG NX and Team Centre PLM environment.

Baseline Responsibilities

  • Be the Technical focal for all aspects of Compressor Design on a given project (or projects).
  • Through strong engagement with the Project/ Technical leadership, provide technical direction and priority for all project Compressor Design activities.
  • Provide first line leadership for the Instru Design team, including support for Measurement Technique, Design Iteration, Design Reviews, etc.
  • Ensure that issues are dealt with in a timely manner, recognising the high priority of certain tasks when related to engine availability for test plan (EDP).
  • Interface with the technical seniors providing appropriate technical information as required.
  • Development of new checklist and other documents from leaning the Design process and to achieve Right First Time (RFT).
  • Contribute to development of best practices and productivity improvement
