Job Description

Are you an experienced research and development engineer looking to take your career to the next level?

Are you looking to work for an established defence company in their cutting edge, research and development engineering department on defence land vehicles?

And on top of that, do you want to be earning a tax free salary and live in a thriving city in a hot climate?

Well KDC are looking for just that. Our client is based in the United Arab Emirates and they are looking for a Director of Research and Development for their land vehicle department. The successful candidate will report directly in to the Chief Operating Officer and liaise with the end client.

As the R&D director you will work on conceptual projects through their full life cycle and watch this product come to life. As this work is client directed, in the initial stages of requirements gathering you will be given broad policy concepts, client objectives, areas of special concern, and general philosophies. You will then use your knowledge of defence land vehicle engineering to take this information and guide the land vehicle project through the project life cycle and watch your product come to life.

Due to the nature of this role you will need to have an in depth understanding of advanced theories, concepts, principles and processes for the development, modification and selection of various military weapons systems.

As well as working in an exciting and innovating area of the business, this opportunity is also offering an expatriate package to live and work in the UAE. The salary is well above UK market rate and is completely tax free. On top of this you will be given a very competitive and inclusive expatriate package.
