The Role:

As a Facility Engineering Design Manager, you'll be the focal point for supporting our existing and new high hazard facilities and operations. Partnering the Senior Engineering Manager, it will be your responsibility to ensure facility designs (infrastructure, utilities, processes, equipment) are suitable and appropriate by identifying and selecting solutions to meet business needs, whilst considering functional performance and licencing conditions.

What you'll need to be considered:

We'd love to hear from engineers with a recognised, relevant, qualification (HNC/D/Degree) with the ability to work across functions, providing a supportive interface between the Facility, Safety Case Subject Matter Experts and Technical Authorities. Experience of the following would be highly beneficial:

  • The delivery of engineering design and outputs which underpin continuous safe operations

  • Contributing within a multi-discipline environment and being responsible for the engineering design and guardianship of high integrity assets through the whole life cycle

  • Articulating technical complexities and allocate Project/Design Engineers with design-related tasks to meet with working programmes

All candidates must be willing and able to obtain and maintain the necessary security clearance for the role and be willing and able to work in designated areas.
