Are you an experienced Senior engineer in security systems? Are you looking for new opportunity, that is rewarding, at the cutting edge of project development and where you can really make a difference?


If so, join us as a Technical Lead in security systems for Commissioning, and you’ll join one of the most exciting and ambitious projects within EDF.


The Opportunity… 


Hinkley Point ‘C’ (HPC) is a vital part of the UK’s future energy strategy. As the first of the UK’s next generation of nuclear power stations, HPC is both of high profile and high complexity. The project is delivered through an organisation that comprises multi-disciplinary teams.


We are recruiting a Senior Commissioning Engineer, specialised in Security systems, who will be responsible for ensuring the commissioning of all the security systems for HPC, including CCTV, access control and intrusion detection. As a lead of his team composed of Juniors and experienced engineers, he/she will be involved from the early beginning of the detailed design throughout the project lifecycle to ultimately handover the security systems to Operations. Key player of the project team, the individual brings his critical eye into the project to make sure we comply with all the requirements in security and possibly Cyber-security OT aspects.


As a senior engineer, you will also lead technically a team covering mainly security systems (CCTV and AACS) but also involved in few other systems in the field of Network, wireless communications and a specific automation system called “Level 3” systems for data historization and remote monitoring in a long-term activity. The role requires then to contribute technically in some aspects of the other systems supporting experts already in place.


Pay, benefits and culture…


Alongside a competitive salary range of £60,000 - £65,000, depending on experience, we’re dedicated to offering flexible benefits that support our people across all aspects of their lives. This role is a full time, permanent position based on site at Hinkley Point C and requires flexible working due to possible shift and weekend work on a business need basis.

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.

As a key player in the commissioning team for permanent Security Systems, you'll be the deputy to the Commissioning Manager, providing crucial support for the delivery of various systems within your team. Your role will be complemented by a team of dedicated Commissioning Engineers focused on specific sub-areas.

Who you are…


With a degree in a relevant engineering discipline and extensive experience in the field, we are looking for you to adapt successfully to new environments, especially in large industries like nuclear. For this role, you should hold good knowledge of complex industry installation constraints, and experience in nuclear power stations would be a plus. If you have a track record in disciplines like security systems, networking, or I&C systems, along with a technical engineering background, you might be the enthusiastic and knowledgeable team player we're looking for!
