About the role

Safety and Environmental Engineering is a part of Gas Transmission and plays a key role in ensuring that all our activities are carried out safely. Our Safety Engineering team provide expert knowledge that guarantees that the design and operation of our UK high pressure transmission network meet the rigorous safety requirements necessary.

You’ll be required to work with technical specialists from across the business on projects taking place across the UK. It’s a fast-paced environment so you’ll be expected to develop your technical and problem solving skills quickly and effectively. You’ll be provided with extensive training to ensure safety is always paramount and to further enhance our reputation within the industry.

What you'll do

The role revolves around ensuring that Gas Transmission meets it safety obligations under COMAH, Pipeline Safety Regulations, DSEAR, Human Factors, Functional Safety and Emergency Planning.

This may entail supporting projects in carrying out hazard studies and risk assessments. Alternatively, you might spend time developing safety cases for our key installations as required by the Health and Safety Executive and Environmental regulators. You can also expect to work with other subject matter experts to develop our policies and procedures to ensure that Gas Transmission is at the forefront of best practise and latest international standards. The role also involves carrying out analysis, safety studies, and presenting the results in a variety of formats depending upon the audience.

The role provides a varied and diverse workload where no two days will be the same. As Gas Transmission sites are spread all over the U.K, there will be the opportunity for extensive travel across the U.K.

What's in it for you

You will be working with professional engineers and the work will be relevant to accreditation with professional bodies such as IChemE, IMechE and IGEM. Most of the work is collaborative with other departments and site visits are often required.

What you'll get

You will receive a starting salary of £28,105 (or £29,127 if you hold a Masters) and a £2000 joining bonus. You will also have access to a number of additional benefits such as 25 days’ holiday, a generous completion payment, an accommodation allowance as you move around the business, a competitive pension scheme and a number of flexible benefits to name just a few.
