Type of opportunity:
A lot of lives depend on the systems we maintain and deliver. So we need to make sure they are safe even if something goes wrong. On this programme, you’ll learn about how to identify, analyze and safeguard against hazards, failures and faults. In the process, you’ll develop your understanding of everything from production and manufacturing to project management, design and safety.
Places on our Nuclear Safety Case/Hazard Management engineering programme for Autumn 2020 are available in our Cavendish Nuclear and Marine sector. But no matter which team you join, you could be based anywhere in the UK. That’s why we ask all our graduates to be flexible and willing to move during their programme.
The aim of the Hazard Management Consultant program is to give you a broad education in all areas of hazard management that will enable you to choose a specialism at the end of the programme. This will involve placements at several of our sites and projects, and training with safety case authors, human factors consultants, engineers of all disciplines, radiation protection advisors and specialists in assessing shielding requirements. There will also be opportunities to work with other specialists such as environmental management as required. Your work will support the safe construction, operation and decommissioning of civil nuclear facilities and Royal Navy submarines. You will be trained to comply with regulations and work with regulating bodies to provide hazard management advice for a wide range of engineering projects and sites using various methodologies across all stages of the site/facility lifecycle.
With such a range of experience and technical knowledge to acquire, you will need great support to develop and a comprehensive training package. And that’s what you’re going to get. You’ll be assigned a mentor who’ll help you achieve professional status and guide you in your training. And you’ll be starting on a competitive salary of £29k - £31k.
You’ll need to be degree educated. Most common are degrees in a science or engineering discipline but all disciplines are considered. You may need to satisfy the MOD’s security requirements (and may need to complete a medical assessment).
