The Opportunity

Nuclear Safety Engineer, Heysham, Lancashire, Salary £33,446 - £60,592 & Benefits

EDF Energy has an exciting new opportunity for a Nuclear Safety Engineer at our Heysham 1 site.

The Nuclear Safety Engineer role has responsibilities in two technical areas, reactor physics and safety case implementation. The reactor physics area involves performing routine physics evaluations and predictions, preparing refuelling assessments for the reactors and development work on Reactor Physics codes and processes. This area of work also involves providing advice to the Operations Department to assist in optimising Station performance within a safe operational envelope.

The safety case area of the role focusses on authoring/verifying updates to the Safety Case, assessing the Nuclear Safety aspects of plant modifications and providing advice on the safe operation of plant and safety systems.

The scope of work for the group is expanding to include development of strategies for efficient use of fuel during the approach to the end of generation phase for the plant and the shaping of the safety cases to enable efficient defueling of the reactors.

The successful applicant would be expected to be involved in both technical areas to some degree following offsite training at EDF's Nuclear Power Academy, on-site training in classroom and mentoring by experienced personnel.

• Excellent communication and influencing skills

• Ability to work as a team member

The Skills

Desirable skills:

• Prior knowledge of safety case or hazard assessment in the context of industry

• Prior knowledge of operational reactor physics

Competitive Salary & Benefits

The salary range is between £33,446 and £60,592, with terms and conditions covered by the EDF Energy Nuclear Generation Company Agreement.
