Civil Building Lead

Aztec West with flexibility of working from home, minimum 3 days a week in the office.


Are you an enthusiastic Civil Engineer looking for the next step in your career? Are you experienced in civil engineering design contracts in the nuclear sector or other heavily regulated industry? Do you have excellent communication and stakeholder engagement skills? Are you the type of person who likes a fast-paced environment and likes to be challenged?


If so, join us as a Civil Building Lead and you’ll join one of the most exciting and ambitious projects within EDF, as we continue to lead the rebirth of nuclear in the UK.


The Opportunity...


EDF EPR Engineering UK (EPR-E) established in 2023, is responsible for delivering the design for a number of NI buildings, systems and equipment contracts for the Hinkley Point C EPR Project through an integrated team, support to HPC construction and commissioning activities, and preparing design replication feasibility and engineering activities for the Sizewell C Project. Therefore, a Technical Directorate is being created, responsible for the engineering disciplines and technical expertise required to deliver the different engineering projects through integrated teams in EPR-E.


As a Civil building lead, you will be responsible for the civil design of one of the buildings, under the supervision and support of the Civil team lead. As such, you will be responsible for meeting the project requirements in terms of quality, program, and cost for their technical scope. You may have a small team of 1 or 2 civil engineers to manage.


Several positions are available, some on HPC and SZC project, with similar responsibilities but in different project contexts.


For the positions as part of the HPC integrated team in EPR-E (ITB), the Civil Building lead will be embedded in one of the three building teams in ITB. This building team, led by the corresponding Building Manager, is a multidisciplinary team responsible for the delivery of the design of a specific scope of buildings within the Nuclear Island. The Civil Engineer will be part of a civil team, led by the Civil team lead under the Building Manager.


For the positions in SZC project, the Civil Building lead will operate under the supervision of the Civil team lead and the Senior Civil Architect. As opposed to HPC, no multi-disciplinary teams are created per building, however the Civil Building lead will have interfaces with other disciplines located in other areas of the SZC project organisation.


Pay, benefits and culture…


Alongside a salary from £55,000 to £62,000, we offer a competitive benefits package, including a company pension scheme, a wide range of flexible benefits to suit your lifestyle, and the opportunity to earn bonus. 


At EDF, everyone’s welcome. We strive to create an inclusive and diverse environment where everyone has a voice and where you feel confident being yourself.  We’re committed to equality, diversity and inclusion.  We’d like our future workforce to have an equal gender balance, represent a broad mix of people from minority ethnic backgrounds, LGBTQ+, those with a disability and supporting social mobility. 


We’re a disability confident employer and we’ll do all we can to help with your application, making adjustments as you need. 


We’ll value the difference you bring and offer opportunities for you to thrive and succeed.


What you’ll be doing…


  • Receiving, analysing, and verifying the consistency of the input data.
  • Producing deliverables for which they are responsible.
  • Performing technical verifications of civil engineering design notes, models, and drawings.
  • Contributing to the surveillance of the anchorages designed by the equipment suppliers and CDM reviews, creating and maintaining the Design Risk Register.
  • Liaising with site-based engineering teams to facilitate the construction and subject matter experts.
  • Ensuring the coordination for transverse topics and complex technical open points (with other programs & disciplines).
  • Coordinating with civil designers and other stakeholders.
  • Preparing and chairing progress meetings and managing many different stakeholders involved in the engineering design sequence. 
  • Analysing, implementing, and monitoring design modifications requested by the various engineering teams.
  • Anticipating and raising alerts on technical open points.
  • Contributing to project and contract risk registers.
  • Preparing design change papers and their presentation in change committees.
  • Assisting internal contract management teams in the administration of the relevant contracts.
  • Identifying and raising risks impacting program and cost for your scope of activity.
  • Managing workloads and associated resources.

In addition, for SZC positions:

  • Supporting the preparation of technical documentation for procurement, jointly with the Contract Engineering Lead (CEL).
  • Supporting the client –SZC Co- on behalf of the CEL for the coordination of technical discussions during the procurement phase prior to the signature of the contract with the civil designer.
  • Responsibility for the replication of the HPC design to SZC.

Who you are…


Your background may include some of the following:

  • Bachelor / master’s degree in civil engineering.
  • Minimum of 8 years of experience in civil engineering.
  • Knowledge of or experience of civil engineering design contracts in the nuclear sector or other heavily regulated industry (such as oil & gas, rail).
  • Experience in nuclear engineering and new nuclear build projects, HPC experience will be very advantageous.
  • Knowledge of EPR engineering process.
  • Understanding and implementation of project engineering procedures.

Closing Date: 26th February 2024


Join us and together we can help Britain achieve Net Zero.
