We are looking to recruit high calibre staff to support our Safety Case delivery capability to meet opportunities in the nuclear and defence industries.
We require Senior Safety Case Engineers with a Civil and Structural bias who have experience of working in the nuclear/defence industries.
If successful, you will become part of a respected and ambitious company with excellent career prospects and international opportunities.
Working in our Defence team in Glasgow, you will be involved in reviewing existing safety case documentation, assessing structural design analysis/assessment studies in a multi-discipline environment, determining if this satisfies the criteria imposed and recommending (and undertaking) any work where the substantiation does not meet modern standards.
The team includes a wealth of experience and expertise in seismic engineering, structural dynamics, finite element analysis and numerical modelling. Sharing of knowledge and learning of new skills is actively encouraged.
Our projects involve reviewing and assessing complex structures to resist variable and dynamic effects from earthquakes, dropped loads and impacts, vibrating machinery, mechanical handling, explosions, extreme environmental loading, and fire. This requires a fundamental understanding of engineering principles and the considered application of numerical analysis techniques, for example modelling ductile behaviour, ‘beyond design basis’ responses, soil-structure-interaction, and non-linear buckling behaviour. Also required is an understanding of how structural performance contributes to the critical safety function of nuclear facilities.
At CRA, everyone holds the reins for their own careers. Our role is to offer you the opportunities and resources you need to reach your full potential.
So why not join us and help shape the engineering landscape of the future?
