Wood is seeking a skilled and experienced Nuclear Technical Engineer to work within an existing team which provides a key role in supporting the Ministry of Defence’s Nuclear Submarine Programme.
About Wood Nuclear:
Wood’s nuclear business supports customers in the energy generation, new build, decommissioning and defence sectors.
Our nuclear business has offices in Knutsford and Birchwood in Cheshire, Gloucester, Dorchester, Harwell, Glasgow, Newcastle, Bristol, Cumbria, Reading and London. We also have a strong international presence to support our growing operations in France, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Poland, South Africa and Japan.
Our reputation for safely delivering quality projects on time and on budget is well recognised in the industries we serve. We have proven expertise in managing large, complex projects, a global reach and long-standing UK presence, strong relationships with our clients and cutting-edge processes and technologies.
What that means to you is the opportunity to experience a real variety of projects, working with people from different backgrounds. You'll work closely with our clients and committed to achieving outstanding results in a stimulating and quality-driven environment.
You will work within our dynamic, customer facing Independent Nuclear Assurance (INA) team (formerly SRD) who provide independent nuclear safety and technical advice for both current in-service as well as future designs of Naval Reactor Plant (NRP). As part of the INA team, you will ensure that our safety and technical support is delivered to meet the requirements of the UK’s submarine programme.
This work requires detailed knowledge of the design and operation of NRP and is therefore well suited to Naval Reactor Plant Operators or personnel with suitable operational experience who are seeking an opportunity to continue working within the Naval Nuclear Programme. However, we are equally interested in hearing from engineers and scientists who have related skills within the naval programme and are seeking new challenges in this exciting and rewarding area of work
The post is based at our new modern offices in Birchwood, Cheshire but the work will involve occasional travel throughout the UK.
Overall, this position provides a gateway into the MoD and Civilian Nuclear Programmes with opportunities to gain qualifications, broaden experience and progress a career in a modern and nationally important industry. You will be working in a close knit team where your experience will be valued.
A relocation package will be considered for the right candidate.
