I am recruiting a Senior Civil and Structural Engineer to work on various nuclear decommissioning and new build projects on behalf of a global market leading engineering company that undertakes critical engineering work worldwide. You would support the UK's largest nuclear delivery organisation and lead some of the country's most significant nuclear projects.

This is a very exciting time to join the nuclear industry. There is a strong drive from government to show progress on nuclear projects. The projects undertaken by our multi discipline engineering team are of national importance and therefore innovation and efficient design play a key role in our approach to design and construction.

Our dedicated engineering team pride ourselves upon innovative design solutions and approaches that have received recognition from clients and regulatory authorities. We are investigating and developing the use of all available technologies and play a part in the development of technology and their applications for use in the nuclear industry.

We are looking for highly motivated people who will be given a great opportunity to develop their professional skills and contribute to our successful work within the nuclear sector. In turn, we will share our proven skills with successful candidates.

The successful candidate should have the necessary communication, collaboration and team building skills to ensure that productivity, safety and a multi discipline design approach remains the focus of any team they play a part in.

Main purpose of role:

  • Preparing complete designs for structures and infrastructure of varying complexity, including design drawings, calculations and reports.
  • Carry out reviews or specific checks on Engineers' work to provide Design Verification.
  • Complete analysis and solution of structural problems of varying complexity that may arise during the design phase, in manufacture, installation, commissioning and decommissioning.

  • Supporting design reviews, HAZOP's, optioneering studies, construction/installation reviews, design changes and other meetings with detailed information on the project design.
  • Maintain good communications with all personnel associated with any given project.
  • Senior Engineers will be required to carry out reviews or specific checks of other Engineers' work and provide mentoring for junior members of the team.
  • Major contribution to the CDM process throughout the design phase ensuring as is reasonable practical that all CDM concerns have been addressed in an appropriate manner.

Ideal requirements:

  • Degree Qualified (BEng or MEng), Civil / Structural Engineer or Engineering degree of similar relevance to the Civil / Structural engineering industry.
  • Chartered Engineer with membership of ICE or IStructE.
  • An understanding of Nuclear Site Licence Conditions and their application in design.
