We employ engineers to co-ordinate engineering activities on larger projects – our “Programme Engineering Managers” – and we need senior engineers to help organise and run the engineering department. Engineering leaders help to set the strategy for the whole function, for our businesses and so for the whole organisation. To support innovation and inform the setting of strategy, Raytheon careers seek to ensure that technical leadership is acknowledged alongside programme management skills.
