Assystem Energy and Infrastructure have a number of Civil & Structural Engineering vacancies at all levels. (The description below is a guideline only, refer to Energy and Infrastructure Vacancies for current roles being advertised)
The Civil/ Structural Engineer is expected to apply technical problem solving to assess components and structures to determine their fitness for purpose. The assessment may cover a wide range of technical fields, e.g. stress analysis using hand calculations or computational methods such as FEA or CFD. The Civil/ Structural Engineer will fit within a wider engineering process which may involve the design of components in a collaborative environment. The engineer must therefore be able to communicate the conclusions of the assessment to technical and non-technical audience ensuring the important aspects are correctly understood.
As a Civil/Structural Engineer you will:
1. Work in a professional manner in accordance within the requirements of the company QMS procedures.
2. Translate technical customer requirements into an analysis plan and ensure this analysis plan is appropriately checked, approved and implemented.
3. Produce technical assessments of existing designs or conceptual schemes as required during a design process to the appropriate code or standard for the project.
4. Write technical reports or calculation sheets which are both technically correct but also are informative and sufficiently clear in the conclusions to allow a non-specialist to understand the outcome of the assessment. This includes interpretation of the analysis results into meaningful conclusions.
5. Ensure that the calculations are adequately checked and that evidence of the checking exists to satisfy internal, external, technical and quality requirements.
6. Ensure appropriate validation and verification of the conclusions produced is carried out using test cases and reference analytical solutions.
7. Identify promptly to the project team any findings that cause failures to the appropriate standard, or that give cause for concern that failures may be close.
8. Work as part of a larger analytical team where appropriate.
9. Participate and present in design reviews giving input as to the implications of design changes. In cases of failure of an assessment, be able to comment on potential corrective actions when required to do so.
10. Maintain good communications with Procurement, Manufacturing, Design and Quality personnel. When required to by the Project Manager, maintain direct communication with the clients’ staff. This may involve direct face to face contact at customer premises.
11. Assist in production of man-hour budgets and timescale estimates during the tendering phase of a project as well as during the project delivery (eg costs to complete).
12. Identify variations of the technical scope of a project and bring these to the immediate attention of the Project Manager.
13. Work within cost and time constraints as defined in the project plan.
14. Be proactive in seeking ways to achieve task completion below the defined budget, whilst maintaining the company and customer QMS requirements.
15. Meet, or ideally exceed, customer expectations for Quality, Cost and Delivery monitored with customer satisfaction surveys.
