System Health Engineer - Electronics / Computing

The Opportunity

Heysham 2 are looking for System Health Engineer’s specialising in Electronics / Computing to join the team on a permanent basis.

As the one of the System Health Engineers you will be responsible for the execution of the Fleet Engineering standards and processes for the safe and reliable operation of a nuclear power plant in accordance with all the licences, regulating bodies, company business strategies and industry best practices.

The appointed Engineers will act as the system manager and principal owner for assigned systems, the role includes short-term hands on fault diagnosis and resolution as well as longer-term plant reliability analysis. The Data Processing and Control System (DPCS) is a large interconnected network of legacy computers which provides real time data acquisition, control, display and data logging functions to support operation of both units and associated station services plant from the Central Control Room (CCR).

In addition the role includes the field supervision of a large team of contractors, project management of a significant investment scheme, software testing and working with the latest virtualisation technologies.

The Role

Alongside reporting into the Group Head, you will carry out the following duties on a daily basis:

* Ensure station documentation and drawings are maintained and accurately reflect design and configuration changes

* Carry out all activities whilst adhering to site licence requirements, statutory regulations, company and local directives, procedures and safety rules

* Be responsible for the medium to long term equipment reliability of assigned systems

* Liaise with peers in other Engineering groups within the fleet, to share best practise and foster a continuous development mindset for local and fleet performance

* Perform Condition Monitoring, Performance Trending, Plant Walkdowns and System Health Reviews as required

* Responsible for Outage scope definition, preparation and delivery

* Act as a Subject Matter Expert in plant areas as designated

The Skills

The successful System Health Engineer (Electronics / Computing) will have the following:

* As a minimum, entrants will have a relevant HNC (or equivalent), candidates with a relevant Degree may have an advantage

* The role will be primarily working with legacy Data Processing and Control System hardware any relevant experience will be advantageous

* Ideally the candidate will have a background in electronics, preferably legacy computing hardware/electronics and knowledge of BBL multibus technology will be an advantage

* Background in nuclear power plant operations, engineering or technical and safety disciplines would be advantage but not essential, training will be provided based on existing experience

Cross Discipline Responsibilities:

A System Engineer is recognised as having cross discipline responsibilities, normally engineers start their careers with knowledge in a single discipline, i.e. Electrical Engineering. To become a fully functioning system engineer there is a need to have an understanding of the other 2 disciplines i.e. Mechanical and C & I. It is not expected that the system engineer would have a broad knowledge in all 3 disciplines but rather would have sufficient knowledge to support system on a day to day basis.

Competitive Salary & Benefits

The salary range is between £34,951 - £75,050, with terms and conditions covered by the EDF Energy Nuclear Generation Company Agreement. The starting salary for this appointment will be dependent of your existing salary, competence, experience and qualifications. You will receive 28 days annual holiday plus bank holidays, incremental and competency-based progression and a Company pension scheme.

Please let us know if you require flexible working arrangements by highlighting this on your application. We’re happy to talk flex in line with the requirements of this opportunity.

At EDF, everyone’s welcome. It’s a powerful statement of our intent to make sure we’re about the people who work with us – a rich and unique mix of backgrounds and experiences that’s vital to shaping a strong and fresh-thinking organisation like ours.
