Numerate Consultants currently employs two full time weapon systems consultants and two administrative staff with additional technical expertise from a wide variety of weapon system related specialisations available within our database of Associates.

We are always keen to hear from capable and enthusiastic technical consultants with theoretical or applied technical expertise and domain knowledge to expand our team of consultants and Associates. Typical backgrounds include research, development and users from industry, academia, the Civil Service and the Armed Forces.

There are four types of relationship with Numerate Consultants. Which type is best for you will depend on your circumstances. Hyperlinks to further information on each are below:
