About the opportunity:
The Civil/Structural team in Jacobs specialises in solving the most complex and technically demanding structural engineering problems for the nuclear industry.
Each project is unique, but typically involves consideration of dynamic load effects due to extreme hazards, including seismic, blast, and impact. We have to look beyond code checks to get a deeper insight into structural response and failure mechanisms, considering ductility, nonlinear buckling, and soil structure interaction. We work things out as a team, starting from first principles, researching methodologies, challenging assumptions, thinking outside the box, and constantly learning.
We work to the highest standards. Our complex analysis models are rigorously validated. Everything we do has to be fully evidenced and justified through independent third party review and ultimately to the nuclear safety Regulators. As a result, this is one of the most varied and challenging roles you can take on as a civil/structural engineer. The main locations will be based around Glasgow or Winnersh.
Responsibilities will Include:
• Inter-discipline project planning, delivery and financial performance
• Provision of technical quality and excellence of project deliverables
• Providing technical and professional guidance, support and development of more junior engineers and technicians
• Adherence and contribution to business and quality management systems
• Operational and design safety, and developing good safety culture
Here’s What You’ll Need:
Good all-round technical design expertise using British and international standards, and/or Eurocodes
Proven ability to manage projects and preparation of project deliverables, including managing quality, budget, programme and resources
Proven ability in preparation of bids and proposals, and developing good working relationships with clients
Good, accredited MEng degree in Civil Engineering or similar Chartered Civil or Structural Engineer
