Our market focuses on supporting the delivery of engineering design for enrichment and fuel manufacture, plant life extension, decommissioning and waste handling projects across their full life cycle including commissioning and operation. We can offer our own products and technology to provide innovative solutions the accelerate the pace of change and provide resource augmentation to support our clients and partners.

We have strong capabilities in the design, assessment and substantiation of structures, machinery, mechanical handling equipment, low voltage electrical systems as well as control and instrumentation systems.

  • This role will look to establish a new capability in the Nuclear and Power business and as such it comes with the ability to direct and grow the capability & team as is required. This will be done by working with the Head of Engineering and other Capability Leads. There will also be an element of discussing, planning and agreeing capability development with senior market leaders to get investment buy in and explain the tangible benefits for how we deliver our projects.

  • Have a demonstrable understanding of the application of a Systems Engineering approach to design. Experience with key Systems Engineering methodologies (e.g. Holistic requirements model, Pugh matrix, interface management) as well as requirements management, structured verification and the use of requirements management tools such as IBM DOORS.
  • Experience with MBSE tools such as Capella. Experience and awareness of engineering lifecycle. Experience in using Microsoft Azure and DevOps tools. Experience with VS code and/or other coding platforms.
  • You should be enthused by the opportunity to take on the responsibility to establish and grow a Systems Engineering capability within our Engineering group.This opportunity will require working collaboratively with colleagues within the DWS market as well as across the wider AtkinsRéalis business, allowing you to shape and influence methodologies and delivery close to home and wider.

How will you contribute to the team?

  • An innovator – You will encourage people to experiment, produce new ideas and challenge others to think differently. You’ll create space for people to think about potential new innovative approaches, providing an opportunity for growth and potentially help to identify and define a new career path for developing and mature engineers and designers.
  • An Improver - You spend time on making the processes, methods and toolsets more efficient, optimising your resources and adjusting things to be leaner.
