Through Life Support
World-class defence equipment requires world-class maintenance and support. Come and join our Through Life Support teams and help influence the design and support of cutting-edge technology for the UK Armed Forces.
Whether you’re already an experienced ILS specialist, seeking a career change or looking for your first job, we have a range of exciting career opportunities on offer.
A rewarding career in a world-class team
Joining our team will give you a unique and exciting opportunity to apply your knowledge and skills to a range of defence projects.
Working collaboratively with technical specialists across DE&S and industry, you’ll utilise ILS methodologies to help you plan and deliver through-life support packages for a range of equipment.
Your end goal will be to develop technologically advanced and cost-effective equipment and support that meets the needs of the Armed Forces; equipment that lasts longer, requires less ongoing maintenance and works reliably in the environment where it’s needed, whether that’s the Antarctic or the jungle.
Equipment Support and Integrated Logistics Support (ILS) roles
We’re looking for through-life support specialists to join us in two different area: equipment support and integrated logistics support. Both roles involve the use of Integrated Logistics Support (ILS) and Integrated Product Support (IPS) methodologies – so what’s the difference?
- Equipment Support – Here, you’ll be contributing to managing the lifecycle of assets once they’re in service. That includes maintaining up-to-date support resources and technical information, using ILS and IPS methodologies and toolkits.
- Integrated Logistics Support (ILS) – In this role, you’ll contribute to the design and development of ILS/IPS programmes and projects for procuring new reliable, maintainable, sustainable, and affordable kit. You could also be working on upgrades to existing kit – ensuring it’s always at the top of its game.
