About the opportunity

Our Safety Case Engineers are working collaboratively across diverse markets in the civil nuclear and Defence sectors on both national and international projects.

Our work spans the nuclear lifecycle, including next-generation systems and emerging reactor technologies, supporting the operation of existing nuclear facilities and systems, and solving complex decommissioning challenges. Our work demonstrates that the facility, system or operation can be conducted safely and in compliance with regulatory requirements.

As an Engineering, Science or Mathematics Graduate, you will work alongside other technical professionals with the responsibility to identify potential hazards and risks, quantify their consequences and assess what available controls or measures can prevent or mitigate them.

The role will entail providing safety case support across the feasibility, design, operation and decommissioning nuclear lifecycle, and for the production of all required nuclear safety documentation. This will require engagement with multiple disciplines to ensure the appropriate balance of technical safety principles and engineering requirements.

Opportunities are available in Glasgow, Knutsford, Newcastle, Scrabster or Warrington offices.
