R-113965

Your Purpose:

Are you an innovative finite element specialist with experience in the modelling and assessment of civil or structural engineering structures? Do you excel in developing complex technical solutions to deliver designs for ground-breaking projects?

If you're a dynamic thinker who wants to contribute to the advanced numerical (finite element) analysis of steel and reinforced concrete (RC) structures, seismic, blast, and impact design, or if you're skilled in first principles engineering and problem solving, then you’ve come to the right place!

The Nuclear and Power civil and structural team is seeking candidates with advanced structural analysis skills, with experience in the post processing of data to carry out design and assessments. This role requires technical expertise for solving problems and will provide you with the opportunity to utilise and develop your skills supported by a diverse and vastly experienced team in our Bristol and Epsom offices.

If you're looking to invigorate your career and enrich your portfolio with new projects such as Hinkley Point C, Sizewell C, Rolls Royce Small Modular Reactor and others, particularly in the nuclear field, we invite you to join us.
