Wood’s Independent Nuclear Assurance (INA) team is seeking skilled and experienced Nuclear Technical Engineers at their Headquarters at Birchwood, Warrington. This is a great opportunity to join the well-established and highly regarded INA team, who provide a key role in supporting the design and safe operation of the Ministry of Defence’s existing and future Naval Reactor Plants (NRP).
As a Nuclear Technical Engineer, you will work within our dynamic, customer facing INA team who provide independent nuclear safety and technical advice for both current in-service and future designs of 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, as well as safety case development and methodologies. INA is therefore suited to Naval Reactor Plant Operators, personnel with safety case experience, or engineers and scientists with experience of the Naval Nuclear Programme or other high hazard industries who are seeking new challenges in this exciting and rewarding area of work.
INA has a learning culture that recognises the need to maintain knowledge, develop skills and support career progression. Structured in-house training is provided to all involved in this unique programme of work, supplemented by additional external training as required to support individual development needs.
The work is based in Birchwood, however, some occasional travel throughout the UK will be required.
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, supportive team who will encourage your development and value your experience.
