Worley is looking for a Principal Electrical Designer to join our Oil and Gas project delivery operation based in one of our UK onshore/offshore locations for a duration of 6-9 months.


Key objective:

You will join the Electrical Department which provides concept, FEED and detailed design services for electrical power systems for onshore and offshore, oil & gas facilities. Engineering personnel are involved in the design, calculation, specification and requisition of electrical equipment and comprehensive analysis of electrical designs to ensure inherently safe systems. Design personnel are generally involved in layout and 3d modelling of electrical equipment and cable management systems, draughting and calculation of lighting, material quantities and weights. - Support to the GTG Levelling modifications that are currently being developed. The majority of Offshore Queries have the requirement for several design deliverables. Currently, the focus of the engineers is diverted from the engineering /materials activities associated with the queries, to perform the design/draughting checking activities associated with designer type issues, eg. construction / fabrication drawings. The Principal designer would be responsible for leading the designers and for checking and supervision of all design deliverables associated with the queries and ensure an expedient turn-around. This will enable the discipline engineers to focus solely on the engineering /co-ordination of the Queries.
