I am looking for a hands-on ANSYS Analyst to conduct design checks/modifications for a major Shiplift and Transfer System as part of revised loading calculations for the £30 billion Dreadnought Submarine Programme. The role requires an individual with extensive hands-on ANSYS modelling/checking experience who can check and modify existing designs. The firm is a Global engineering consultancy that has partnered with the Ministry of Defence for over 50 years, covering all facets of engineering. The role will be based in Glasgow.

About the Project:
Various military sites are undergoing upgrades as part of the ~£30 billion Dreadnought Submarine Programme, delivering the UK’s future at-sea nuclear defence arsenal as a replacement to the current Vanguard Submarine Trident Nuclear Programme. As part of the new Programme, structures at Barrow-in-Furness and HMNB Clyde are going through multiple multidisciplinary structural and infrastructure upgrades in order to support the new Dreadnought class vessels as well as improve operations on-site for the future. Once this particular part of the Programme is complete, you will move on to support other operations as part of the decade-long upgrade Programme.

Your Role:
Due to the nature of work individuals will need to obtain, or hold current, SC Clearance. Due to the nature of work, only British citizens are eligible for this role due to the nature of ‘UK-eyes-only’ assets. Candidates will likely have extensive experience in conducting/modifying ANSYS analyses for a variety of structures and mechanical elements. It is preferred that candidates hold chartered membership of a relevant professional body (IStructE / ICE / IMechE).

Other desirable experience includes project planning, financial planning and experience in other Finite Element packages such as Abaqus. Beyond your FEM abilities, any candidates with experience of assessing soil-structure interaction using FLAC, CLASSI or SASSI.

Your Background:
  • Extensive FEA (ANSYS preferred) modelling/checking experience
  • SC Cleared
  • Chartered Engineer (IStructE / ICE)
  • Relevant education in engineering
  • Experience of structural dynamics, including seismic, blast and impact load effects
  • Experience in soil-structure interaction
