Nuclear Safety Engineers - Warrington

Reference number: 00051747, Date added: 14-Jan

Rolls Royce Nuclear has unique opportunities for Safety Case Engineers to work in both the Defence and Civil Nuclear sectors on both New Build and In-Service Support projects. As a Safety Case Engineer, you will support the increased workload associated with a second round of the Generic Design Assessment (GDA) process and Site Licensing of new nuclear power stations.

 

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

 

 At Rolls-Royce, our focus is on providing customers with integrated, long-term support services across the reactor lifecycle. This covers safety and reliability assessments, licensing and environmental support, world-class engineering and component design, manufacture and supply, in-service support and plant life extension, as well as nuclear instrumentation, control and safety systems.

Our Nuclear business is growing. We require engineers from all disciplines of electrical, electronic, instrumentation and sensor/detector engineering to specify, design, develop, test and support control, instrumentation and protection systems and equipment to be fitted to nuclear reactors. Rolls-Royce is home to some of the world's finest minds. This is your chance to join them.


As a Safety Case Engineer, you will be mainly responsible for:

  • Development of safety cases (PSR, PCSR, POSR etc) to support both the GDA and site specific licensing for UK new build.
  • Preparation of safety case documentation for modifications to existing plants.
  • Undertaking hazard assessment, fault screening, deterministic and probabilistic safety assessment, event and fault tree analysis, ALARP studies, safety categorisation and SIL assessments
  • Interfacing with the engineering teams to ensure the incorporation of nuclear safety case requirements in design.
  • Participation in or chairing of HAZOP / HAZID / SWIFT etc.
  • More experienced Nuclear Safety Engineers will be expected to lead projects and packages of work and be actively involved in the development and mentoring of less experienced engineers within the team.
  • For less experienced safety Engineers, excellent development opportunities are available, including a generous training budget, access to Rolls-Royce technical experts and exposure to cutting edge Rolls-Royce Research & Development projects.
