Programme Engineer & Turbine Systems Engineer
These are no average engineering roles. Both these roles call for people who are as strategic as they are analytical in the way they work. Engineers with the potential to capitalise on all the career opportunities one of the UK’s largest energy companies can offer.
About the roles
As the Turbine Engineer, you will be required to produce plans for the full life management of the two 660MW turbine generators turbine generators, and the ancillary equipment that supports them. You will review current maintenance practices, assess the implementation of plant modifications and identify operational risks and how to mitigate them. You will be expected to take a far-sighted approach to safety and reliability. You will specify outage maintenance scope, making sure any maintenance can be resolved safely and effectively.
As a Programme Engineer, you will develop, implement and manage Surveillance Test Programmes to support the continued safe operation of safety critical plant. You will assess the implementation of plant modifications and improvement projects, driving prolonged sustainable plant reliability and a world class performance.
Whichever role you take on you will work closely with other station departments, adding your technical input to both work and project specifications.
Ideally you will be a degree-qualified Chartered engineer, in a suitable discipline, and have substantial relevant experience in testing or maintenance for either large process plant or large scale engineering. You will be able to demonstrate a proven track record for delivering results and excellent team working abilities. You will be experienced at influencing decision making at all levels of an organisation and be able to demonstrate a pro-active approach to your work.
As a Turbine Engineer, your background might include design, construction, commissioning or overhaul, of large steam turbine generators.
The Programme Engineer role calls for experience in monitoring and testing programmes of pumps and valves associated with complex fluid process systems.
However you have gained your expertise, you will be ready to shoulder more responsibility – particularly within a company that’s spearheading the drive for sustainable energy in the UK.
