Altran Aerospace and Defence - Materials and Processes Team are currently looking to recruit highly motivated engineers to spearhead and coordinate Environmental Engineering activities across a range of activities within the aerospace industry. Roles will involve working closely with a major aerospace manufacturer in Bristol supporting onsite environmental management topics, with further opportunities to work with overseas colleagues and stakeholders on Eco-Design, engineering product and larger impact topics.
Candidates will be required to build on and maintain current environmental policy and form future strategy. Development of a new test facility and efforts to integrate transnational environmental management policy offer great opportunities to enact policy built around cradle to grave environmental principals. We are looking for adaptive and driven candidates, who can not only deliver on time to required quality - but to innovate within their position and propose new solutions for the customer.

The prominence of the role can afford opportunities to be part of the global environmental conversation. As such, a real drive for the subject and ability to lead where necessary will be key for applicants who wish to extend their experience and make a real impact in a vitally important area.
