Safety Case Engineer - Nuclear and Defence


Bristol / Aldershot / Glasgow
£25-40k DOE and suitability



Introduction


I'm looking to speak with safety / risk assessment and justification professionals with solid high hazard safety case or risk assessment capability gained in the nuclear or defence sectors, preferably in a consultancy environment.


My client is building on their strong success in the nuclear defence sector and looking to add additional capability to an already well established and high performing team.



PLEASE NOTE, DUE TO THE NATURE OF THIS ROLE SUCCESSFUL APPLICANTS WILL NEED TO EITHER ALREADY HOLD OR BE ELIGIBLE TO OBTAIN A MINIMUM OF UK SECURITY CHECK (SC) LEVEL SECURITY CLEARANCE. ANY APPLICANTS NOT MEETING THESE CRITERIA WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY DISREGARDED.



The Role


With a broad grounding in safety case methodology and its application you will be confident providing the relevant safety case advice throughout all phases of the design, operation and decommissioning of nuclear facilities, systems and components, to include the production and presentation of relevant technical documentation such as:

  • Hazard/fault identification studies e.g. HAZOP, FMEA, etc;
  • Qualitative and Quantitative Hazard Assessments;
  • Radiological Hazard Assessments;
  • Probabilistic Safety Assessments;
  • Safety Case preparation (e.g. EC, PMP, PSR, PCSR, etc);
  • Support to Engineering Substantiation studies;
  • Safety management studies.
  • Nuclear technology technical reports.
  • Engineering Change (EC) production (Cat 1 and Cat 2)
  • Fault studies
  • Design Authority technical reports


The Candidate


Experienced in safety case production, you will also be comfortable forging strong relationships with other technical disciplines and teams, both internally and in an external client facing setting. You will be confident to assist with the production of bids and tenders, alongside providing technical support to business winning activity and conducting your own work with a keen commercial awareness.

You will be confident to be a critical friend, challenging safety risks and continuously communicating, promoting, and improving company safety assessment initiatives, with direct guidance input to company strategy and policy in this field, always focusing on ensuring compliance with Site Licence Conditions.


Due to the nature of the work conducted, you will need to be eligible to obtain at least UK SC (Security Check) level security clearance.



What's on offer


The opportunity to join a globally respected engineering consultancy active across multiple sectors combines with a solid salary / benefits package and a proven commitment to training and development activity at all career levels.


While you will be expected to be collaborative in your own approach to work, occasionally operating from client sites and attending relevant industry events, this will be rewarded with flexible working and an industry leading benefits package to include the opportunity to purchase up to an additional 15 days leave on top of the standard 25.
