Defence and Security, Glasgow
We are looking to recruit high calibre staff to support our technical delivery capability to meet opportunities in the nuclear and defence industries.
In our Glasgow office, we require Civil and Structural Engineers nearing chartered status with 3 to 5 years of experience, preferably gained in the nuclear/defence industries, but also those with relevant conventional design experience looking to work in a technically challenging environment.
If successful, you will become part of a respected and ambitious company with excellent career prospects and international opportunities.
Primary Job Responsibilities
Working in Defence and Security in Glasgow, you will be involved in delivering structural designs and analysis/assessment studies in a multi-discipline environment. The team includes a wealth of experience and expertise in seismic engineering, structural dynamics, finite element analysis and numerical modelling. Sharing of knowledge and learning of new skills is actively encouraged.
Our projects involve designing and assessing complex structures to resist variable and dynamic effects from earthquakes, dropped loads and impacts, vibrating machinery, mechanical handling, explosions, extreme environmental loading and fire. This requires a fundamental understanding of engineering principles and the considered application of numerical analysis techniques, for example modelling ductile behaviour, ‘beyond design basis’ response, soil-structure-interaction, and non-linear buckling behaviour. Also required is an understanding of how structural performance contributes to the critical safety function of nuclear facilities.
Your responsibilities will include:
• Project planning, delivery and financial performance
• Technical quality and excellence of project deliverables
• Technical guidance of more junior engineers and technicians
• Business development activities including preparation of proposals
• Developing good working relationships with clients and other company departments
• Adherence and contribution to business and quality management systems
• Operational and design safety, and developing good safety culture
Here’s What You’ll Need:
• Broad experience in civil engineering design and/or construction
• Good all-round technical design expertise using British and/or Eurocodes
• Adequate understanding of structural theory, with proven problem solving ability
• Fine knowledge of health and safety legislation and good practice
• Good verbal and written communication, and report writing skills
• Accredited MEng degree in Civil Engineering or similar
• Near Chartered Civil or Structural Engineer
• Experience of numerical analysis software
• Nuclear industry experience
• Experience of 3D modelling and BIM
All staff are required to obtain SC level security clearance, and therefore must have been resident in the UK for the preceding 5 years.
