Head of Engineering and Safety

Location: Harwell, Oxfordshire.
Organisation: Radioactive Waste Management Limited
Reference: RWM051

Competitive Package

From electricity production to defence of the nation and medical uses, the UK has benefitted from nuclear technology for more than 60 years. Now Radioactive Waste Management (RWM) is working to support and deliver safe and secure approaches to the way we continue in managing radioactive waste effectively to protect people and the environment.

As part of this work, RWM will be leading delivery of a major infrastructure project called a Geological Disposal Facility (GDF) for the permanent disposal of radioactive wastes. Similar projects are already underway in countries like Finland and Sweden. RWM, as the developer, will work in partnership with willing local communities - providing jobs, skills and investment for more than 100 years.

As Head of Engineering and Safety, you will plan, procure and manage the engineering and safety case design process for the GDF and associated waste transport systems, whilst safeguarding operational safety and environmental standards.  Developing a high performing team, you will act as the intelligent client to effectively manage mutually dependent parties.

With an outstanding track record of leading the engineering design and safety case process of a major engineering programme, you will oversee the quality of the engineering and safety case design, scoping work, budgets and schedules to ensure these are successfully delivered, within agreed time-lines and cost.

Closing date for applications is Wednesday 6th March 2019
