An exciting opportunity has arisen for Nuclear Safety Case Engineers. 

As a Safety Case Engineer within Rolls-Royce's fast-growing nuclear business, you will play a key role in the nuclear industry's renaissance, and with a company renowned for engineering excellence.  Working with nuclear component and system design engineers, you will develop and maintain nuclear plant safety cases covering operating, shutdown and maintenance conditions. At all times, you'll work within an environment in which excellence is always paramount.


We recruit excellence at every level - from recent graduates to experienced professionals, including those with team management experience. Whatever your background, we have a unique range of opportunities in our nuclear business. And nuclear experience, although an advantage, is not a prerequisite for any roles.


Primary responsibilities:


  • Developing, updating and reviewing nuclear safety cases

  • Undertaking hazard identification and analysis

  • Carrying out numerical assessment of risk from normal and accident conditions

  • Developing ALARP arguments supporting nuclear safety cases

  • Integrating design data into safety case claims, arguments and evidence-based cases
