Careers with Team Tempest

Team Tempest must produce results faster and at half the cost of previous combat aircraft. Parts may be made and assembled on site to maximise design and manufacturing integration. Engineers will use technologies such as augmented and virtual reality, 3D printing, AI, data analytics and cobotics. The project will need more staff with specialist technical skills as well as people who can collaborate effectively with international organisations, across time zones and cultures and with the vibrant UK technology sector.
To be successful we will need to embrace different cultures and working styles and avoid the ‘not invented here’ mind set – sharing expertise between senior specialist engineers, new colleagues and adjacent sectors.
We take a look at some of our people working in Team Tempest now.
