Work-life balance and flexibility is a key focus area for Jacobs. We’re happy to discuss hybrid, part-time and flexible working hours, patterns and locations to suit you and our business.
As a result of increasing demand for our services, there are significant opportunities for you to support a key project within the nuclear business.
We are currently looking for a Electrical Control & Instrument Engineer position to join the team in Birchwood.
Sellafield’s analytical laboratory provides analytical services to the site. The existing laboratory is reaching the end of its life and will be replaced by new facilities to be provided by the Replacement Analytical Project (RAP).
This project will re-equip and extend the existing National Nuclear Laboratory Central Laboratory to provide modern analytical facilities for the Sellafield site for several decades. The project is currently nearing the end of the Preliminary Design phase and will commence detail design within the next few months.
It includes provision of electrical power supplies, lighting and a range of other services, radiological containment and integration of analytical instrumentation.
It is split into four workstreams, three of which are concerned with the actual analytical processes and their containment, and the fourth provides all services to the other three. The multi-discipline design team is split between Risley, Warrington, and Westlakes, Whitehaven. This particular role is ideally for a Risley based experienced EC&I Engineer to work in the division within the services (Balance of Plant) workstream.
It will involve the production of CE&I designs in line with project requirements, as well as close liaison with the other workstreams and disciplines and the Safety Case team, ensuring that the project as a whole proceeds without delays.
Of necessity the work will require regular interface with the Westlakes based design team and existing B170 plant operators and maintainers. Travel to the Sellafield site (including active areas) and the Westlakes office will therefore be necessary once we are fully out of lockdown
PLEASE NOTE This role could be managed remotely working from home, with weekly meetings based out of either Warrington, Cheshire or Westlakes, Cumbria. Applicants with the right skills are encouraged to apply regardless of their UK location.
