Would you like to work on the next generation of Submarines?
We are looking for several Principal Safety Engineers to support the design and producing of the new class of submarine for the Royal Navy at our sites in Weymouth (Dorset), Frimley (Surrey), or Filton (Bristol).
The successful Principal Safety Engineer will be responsible for working closely with sub-systems engineers to develop functional safety cases for areas such as sonar, navigation, and communications, which form parts of the overall combat system.
This is an excellent opportunity to work on one of the most complex engineering programmes ever undertaken in the UK, and shape the UK's defence capability for decades to come.
As a Principal Safety Engineer your main responsibilities will involve:
Supporting the development of safety cases for major projects associated with submarines in design and in-build
Developing functional safety justifications for systems including communications, above water surveillance, and command and control
Organising and chairing Hazard Identification workshops, as well as periodic safety committee meetings
Developing and defining safety requirements
Conducting Risk Management in accordance with Def Stan 00-56
Your skills and qualifications:
Demonstrable experience as a safety practitioner
Broad knowledge of safety standards such as Def Stan 00-56 or IEC 61508
Experience of working in the defence industry, ideally naval or combat systems
Knowledge or experience of software
Awareness of SSMO - Ship Safety Management Office for maritime safety
Degree or equivalent qualification in relevant engineering discipline
What we're looking for in you:
You will have the ability to take responsibility for your own work and will be confident to work without an immediate supervision. You will be capable of indirectly supervising others around you to ensure the swift and accurate delivery of high quality work.
Location: Weymouth (Dorset), Frimley (Surrey), or Filton (Bristol)
