Critical Mission Solutions

Your mission is our mission.

We're invested in you and your success. Everything we do - whether Aerospace, Defense, Intelligence, Information Technology, Cybersecurity, Nuclear, Automotive, or Telecommunications - is more than just a project. It's our challenge as human beings, too. That's why we bring a thoughtful and collaborative approach to every one of our partnerships.

It's our promise to challenge the status quo as we redefine how to solve the world's greatest challenges and transform big ideas into intelligent solutions for a more connected, sustainable world.

Jacobs is the Design and Engineering partner for Sellafield under the PPP (Programme and Project Partners). This is 20-year arrangement to deliver ~£7bn of major projects. We are identifying our best people to deliver this programme.

Sellafield are looking to adopt high value experience from across comparable highly complex regulated sectors and want to transform project delivery across its estate. Working in a fully collaborative environment, there are three core parts of the PPP scope: delivery of major projects, site-wide project delivery improvements and provision of supporting PPP services. Jacobs provide the front-end design and engineering capability and services required to deliver major projects and site wide project delivery improvements. The programme will deliver innovation in solutions and schedule underpinning the decommissioning plan for the site.

Being part of the PPP Team offers a unique opportunity to be part of a team driving change and innovation in design and execution of engineering, safety and delivery solutions in one of the most complex industrial sites in the UK if not the world.

We are recruiting a Senior EC&I Engineer to join the team in Birchwood.

Sellafield's analytical laboratory provides analytical services to the site. The existing laboratory is reaching the end of its life and will be replaced by new facilities to be provided by the Replacement Analytical Project (RAP). This project will re-equip and extend the existing National Nuclear Laboratory Central Laboratory to provide modern analytical facilities for the Sellafield site for several decades. The project is currently nearing the end of the Preliminary Design phase and will commence detail design within the next few months. It includes provision of electrical power supplies, lighting and a range of other services, radiological containment and integration of analytical instrumentation. It is split into four workstreams, three of which are concerned with the actual analytical processes and their containment, and the fourth provides all services to the other three. The multi-discipline design team is split between Risley, Warrington, and Westlakes, Whitehaven. This particular role is for a Risley based experienced CE&I Senior Engineer to work in the CE&I discipline within the services (Balance of Plant) workstream, reporting to the relevant Principal Engineer and Lead Engineer.. It will involve production of CE&I designs and also supervision of others both in-house and as part of contracts placed in the supply chain, as well as close liaison with the other workstreams and disciplines and the Safety Case team, ensuring that the project as a whole proceeds without delays. Of necessity the work will require regular interface with the Westlakes based design team and existing B170 plant operators and maintainers. Travel to the Sellafield site (including active areas) and the Westlakes office will therefore be necessary.
