Does this sound like you? In which case, we’d love you to apply for this role.

  • Master’s degree (MEng/MSc) qualified Mechanical Engineer.
  • Chartered Engineer and a member of IMechE is desirable.
  • Strong technical background.

Some examples of the experience that would be of benefit are:

  • Pipe stress analysis.
  • Equipment specification and engineering specification writing.
  • Experience of attendance at site for surveys and operations.
  • High temperature component life assessment.
  • Fitness for service assessments.
  • Pressure part design calculations.
