About the role:

We are currently recruiting multiple Safety Engineers at all levels at various business locations in the UK. We are at an exciting point in our growth trajectory with business demand in Air, Land, Ranges facilities and special projects. This will require us to work with our partners to shape and deliver the safety management and safety assurance of new and existing platforms and equipment. We are also interested in applicants with experience of supporting through- life product or system design and development activities with system safety analysis to contribute to service and product development.

The role will be to provide Project teams with the Safety Engineering skills to support various domain projects. Tasking will be provided and supervised by the Project Manager and Principal Safety Engineers, but a degree of self-starter experience will be necessary. The primary output for our roles will be provision of Safety Engineering expertise to deliver defined artefacts in support of projects to our clients. Artefact production may include the development of Safety Management Plans, Hazard Logs and Safety Assessment Reports for external client projects or could be in support of Design Certificates for special projects and ranges and facility upgrades managed by the business.

What will I be doing?

  • Ensure that work tasks are delivered to the specified time, cost, required quality standards and any other specifications and regulatory requirements given.
  • Provide solutions to problems that are defensible, auditable and which will meet customers' expectations and needs.
  • Provide support to estimates for inputs to bids.
  • Ensure that all work performed is consistent with the business' Compliance Procedure.
  • For senior and principal roles client and stakeholder engagement will be a feature of the role.

What do I need?

  • The applicant should have experience of some or all of hazard identification techniques, hazard analysis and risk classification. Experience of chairing or representing the safety discipline at hazard review boards and safety working groups is desirable but is not essential.
  • For the through-life design applications applicants should have experience of FMEA, FFA and similar techniques.
  • The applicant should possess analytical skills to develop safety arguments and examine evidence to ensure it substantiates the assertions made. Ability in the use of safety engineering tools and techniques together with excellent report writing skills is essential for the delivery of output.
  • For more senior positions we would like to see applicants with experience of technical leadership and client relationship skills to be able to chair safety working groups and lead customer engagement in systems safety engineering aspects.
