Mechanical Design Engineer – Nuclear

  1. Derby, Manchester, Sheffield, Epsom, Bristol, Glasgow
  2. Nuclear
R-111307

Are you a Mechanical Design Engineer who thrives on solving difficult engineering problems? Are you drawn to complex projects and excited by the opportunity to rapidly progress into leadership positions, heading up projects and guiding junior engineers?

If so, you might enjoy solving the energy industry’s most important mechanical engineering conundrums for a multitude of energy systems across a variety of clients. You could be designing test rigs in support of the development of the UKs nuclear fusion capabilities, carrying out structural integrity assessment of primary plant (for both civil and defence applications) to keep existing fleet generating, designing high integrity structures for new nuclear establishments, or leading one of many renewable energy projects across a growing carbon net zero portfolio. You’re likely to be juggling several projects simultaneously, so enjoying being adaptable is a must! The constant in this role is the complex nature of the jobs and the chance to provide innovative solutions to a range of problems for several appreciative clients.

Whichever energy-related projects you get involved in, you’ll be engaged in the development of engineering solutions to the industry’s most challenging problems, so you’ll be making an important and rewarding contribution to the energy and environmental security of the UK and beyond.

If you are a self-starter who can deliver multiple projects at the same time, working closely with clients and internal teams to capture requirements, set up projects and deliver right-first-time solutions for the most challenging problems in the energy industry, then we’d love you to apply.

  • Experience in requirements capture, including functional, non-functional, stakeholder and regulatory requirements.
  • Experience in generating design solutions through formal optioneering processes or similar.
  • Experience in carrying out mechanical engineering substantiation for new designs or existing plant.
  • Experience in writing accurate, detailed, and concise technical reports (e.g., design calculations, basis of analysis, safety case reports).
  • Experience in delivery accountability for mechanical engineering solutions.
  • Comfortable liaising with, presenting to, and influencing your stakeholders at all levels both internally and externally, in understanding their issues, goals, and processes.
  • Proven track record of working effectively as part of a project team.

Please flag if you have experience in any of the following (but still apply if you might enjoy gaining that experience too) -

  • Experience working with design codes typical for the engineering industry.
  • Working, or authoring bids, within a safety critical and heavily regulated environment.
  • Or if you are chartered with a relevant professional institute (or approaching application for registration).
