I am looking to place a Senior Civil/Structural/Architectural Engineer with Nuclear and Defence experience in an international consultancy’s Moor Row office, just South of Whitehaven. The role will involve supporting a variety of nuclear and defence schemes at conceptual stage, design analysis/modification through to construction. You will contribute to a variety of nuclear new-build / refurbishment schemes, decommissioning projects, facilities/structures for the Ministry of Defence and other private firms that support defence-related projects, with project values running in to the £billions. Previous experience with Sellafield and ability to obtain a P4 Pass would be an advantage.

From a technical standpoint, you will design and assess complex structures for static and dynamic loading, impacts, vibration and mechanical handling. It is highly desirable that you have an understanding of non-linear buckling behaviour, soil-structure interaction and safety critical design for nuclear facilities.

Ideally, you will have previous experience within the defence and/or nuclear industry working for large consultants or directly for energy/defence organisations. You will have relevant education of Civil/Structural Engineering either through the HNC/HND or Degree routes, with a professional membership with either the ICE/IStructE preferred. For those not yet Chartered, the firm has a wide variety of professional development schemes to help you attain Chartership with your chosen professional body. Your experience will help to support the delivery of new-build nuclear energy schemes, decommission projects and defence projects that affect the whole of the UK’s energy supply and national security.

On top of your own design skills, you will support the management of more junior staff, ensuring delivery across the portfolio of projects. You will also have the opportunity to develop a variety of client relationships, often working alongside project teams from other international consultants, energy firms, nuclear regulators and the MOD.

Due to the nature of work, SC Clearance will be required for this role. Beyond SC Clearance, this role is also only open to UK Nationals due to the ‘UK-eyes-only’ nature of some of the assets involved.

Role Requirements:
  • Relevant education Civil/Structural Engineer (HNC/HND/Degree)
  • Working towards Chartered ICE/IStructE membership
  • Relevant experience within Civil/Structural Engineering in a Nuclear/Defence/Industrial setting
  • Extensive experience Reinforced Concrete and Steel civil/structural design
