Are you interested in working for one of the UK’s leading welding and additive manufacturing research teams? We are looking for a welding engineer to work with and deliver welding projects to the UK nuclear decommissioning sector. The engineer will work with power beam and arc welding techniques, providing support and expertise to the customer.

You will hold a technical degree in mechanical, welding, material science or relevant engineering discipline along with chartered engineer status and current membership with a recognised institute. You need to have an appreciation and understanding of joining and welding techniques applicable to the nuclear industry. You will be expected to work alongside welding technicians using both beam and arc welding techniques. You must be capable of technically leading projects, working to design and welding codes, reporting information to staff at all levels and be motivated to work at the highest standard of professionalism. You will focus on projects for the nuclear decommissioning sector; one of the Nuclear AMRC’s main sector’s.

Main duties and responsibilities include:

  • Lead on the design and development of technical welding processes for the decommissioning sector projects within the nuclear decommissioning sector.
  • Hold technical authority for welding technologies and methods relating to the products required by the client. This will involve researching into problem areas to advance knowledge relating to welding in the nuclear decommissioning sector.
  • Assist in the implementation of research technology strategies and techniques that will reduce the decommissioning sector’s costs through improving welding and material quality/efficiency for decommissioning projects.
  • Attend face-to-face meetings with clients. This will require you to travel to Cumbria on a monthly basis and elsewhere across the UK where appropriate.
  • Responsible for the planning and technical oversight of decommissioning sector welding projects. This includes defining objectives, outlining the required tasks, determining the skills, materials and methods required to deliver the tasks within agreed time frames.
  • This is a senior engineering position within the Nuclear AMRC, thus the role offers potential to develop research skills, Chartership status (if not already achieved) and develop professional skills as required.

The Nuclear AMRC’s welding, materials and NDE team is a leading research team that develops new welding techniques as well as proving joining and measurement techniques for key players in the nuclear industry. The team also participates in work from other sectors such as oil and gas, aerospace and automotive. The team comprises welding engineers, researchers and technicians who work together across various welding, materials and NDE technologies to further the technology used in the UK’s industrial supply chain. The Nuclear AMRC welding team is varied, no two jobs are ever the same and there is the opportunity to develop skills in relation to any other area of the centre’s research.
