Vacancy Overview

A vacancy has arisen for an Electrical Technical Advice Engineer (TAG) within the Maintenance department at Dungeness B power station.  The Technical Advice Group is a multi-disciplined team of nuclear professionals responsible for maintaining the safety and operability of plant systems to meet legislative requirements by expediting high priority emergent work and providing maintenance engineering support.

Candidates should have a background in a relevant Electrical engineering discipline with strong communication skills and the ability to work alone and in a team is an essential part of the role.

This position offers an excellent opportunity for individuals who wish to progress their chosen career path in engineering working on complex plant and system faults.

Nature and Scope

As an Engineer within the Maintenance department you will develop expertise in a wide range of systems and processes, thus an aptitude and openness to learning in conjunction with a proven ability to function effectively as a team member is essential.  You will be presented with complex technical faults that will require derivation of safe, cost effective solutions utilising sound engineering principles coupled with the ability to utilise novel/innovative implementation techniques.

The role will require the individual to occasionally work alone, using your own initiative, drive and ability to identify and deliver projects.  At other times you will be required to work with multi-disciplined teams, liaising closely with operations, engineering, contract partners, maintenance staff and other functions within Dungeness.

You will acquire in-depth knowledge of plant safety cases and be responsible for ensuring plant is operated, maintained and tested within its respective safety case envelope.

Knowledge, Skills, Qualifications, Experience

As a minimum, applicants will have a HNC (or equivalent) in the relevant discipline.  Candidates with a relevant degree may have an advantage.

  • An ability to manage projects from low to high complexity by leading diverse multi-disciplined teams.
  • To maintain and develop knowledge within the Electrical discipline and taking responsibility for your own training and development.
  • Where plant issues are identified provide technical expertise and knowledge to troubleshooting activities ensuring robust corrective actions are in place to prevent reoccurrence.
  • Actively participate in the work management process providing engineering technical input as required, ensuring prioritisation of work is based on the criticality of equipment and its potential impact on plant performance.
  • Field supervision of contract partners on a nuclear licenced site.
  • Specification and development of work packages and risk assessments.
  • Produce engineering change justifications to support plant modifications.
  • Reinforcement of the maintenance fundamentals to EDF Energy staff and contract partners.

These duties are carried out with due regard for safety, environmental, financial and industrial legislation and constraints.  Operating in a highly regulated technical environment, a thorough and professional approach to the resolution of problems, and presentation of advice is required at all times.
