Defence and Political Adviser

in Bristol, South West

The position attracts a competitive salary, car allowance and participation in the Executive Bonus Scheme.

Working as part of a small team of peer domain and subject matter experts, the role divides equally between keeping the Company aware of British Army thinking and future plans, and making sure the Army understands MBDA.

Job Responsibilities

  • The role demands an individual who is comfortable interacting across the whole of the Army, building confidence and networking, and being the non-commercial conduit between the Army and the Company.
  • It equally demands someone with the ability to translate Army plans into relevant business opportunities, providing informed advice and deep understanding, while being able to explain to non-military engineers what is required.
  • Finally, the role requires someone with a passion for the wider Defence Enterprise (including military charities and other ‘customer’ activities such as sponsored events).

​​​​​Job Qualifications

  • The deep understanding required can only come from someone who has been a part of the Army organisation. This is as much about credibility as it is about competence.
  • Rank is not in itself an indicator of competence. The candidate will need to demonstrate experience in capability and acquisition roles, military technology, industrial understanding and prosperity (exports).
  • The role of ‘adviser’ requires well-tuned diplomatic skills and the ability to influence without having any positional authority.
