Materials Testing Engineer

Barnwood 100, Gloucester.



Are you an experienced materials test engineer, looking for a role in the nuclear industry? Are you interested in working with not only our existing nuclear power station fleet but also the nuclear new build functions?


Above all are you passionate to help Britain achieve #CarbonNetZero? 


Then we have the role for you!



The Opportunity…


We are looking for a Materials Testing Engineer to join our Structural Analysis Branch (SAB), providing support to structural integrity issues across our internal customers.


Activities are varied and aimed at providing input for structural integrity assessments of operating nuclear power plants, as well as likely to be used in Generic Design Assessments of future UK Small Modular Reactors and high temperature Advanced Modular Reactors.


Your role will include undertaking material tests on a variety of metals to provide property advice for use in our assessment procedures, that provide the foundation of the safety and operational lifetime of structural components in our nuclear power plants as well as being widely used in other industries.



Pay, benefits and culture…


We can offer a competitive salary from £54,391 - £84,892, and you’ll be appointed based on the parameters outlined in the Nuclear Generation Company Agreement as well as your existing salary, competence, experience and qualifications.


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…


In your role you’ll perform materials property testing within our Materials Testing Facility (MTF). The role also includes aspects of management of the MTF such as maintaining safe working arrangements, managing the MTF lab maintenance budget and arranging for continued investment in the equipment.


Part of your role will involve liaising with external suppliers for equipment and test sample manufacture associated with tests, as well as dealing with manufacturers for equipment maintenance and trouble shooting.


From time to time, training/mentoring/supervision of others will be required and where requested, advice on testing programmes provided to the other parts of the organisation.



Who you are…


You’ll need a minimum of an HNC (or equivalent) in a relevant engineering subject and holding a degree is advantageous.


We are looking for agility in structural integrity support, as well as a good understanding of the behaviour and properties of metals (carbon steels, low alloy steels, stainless steels and nickel alloys).


You’ll be experienced in a range of test types for metals including tensile, fracture toughness, low cycle fatigue, fatigue crack growth, creep, creep-fatigue and creep crack growth. These cover a range of conditions from cryogenic to creeping temperatures.


You’ll be familiar with recognised UK and international materials testing standards and procedures. You should also be familiar with the requirements for UKAS accreditation and surveillance.


Training can be provided to assist in upskilling where required, particularly with regard to the specific processes used within EDF, our Quality Management processes, and any bespoke testing carried out.


If any of the above sounds like you, we would love to hear from you!


Closing Date: 16th June 2024



Join us. Together, we’ll help Britain achieve net zero.
