System Safety Engineer

Είδος εργασίας: Άλλα

A World Leading & Award Winning Arms Manufacturer require an experienced System Safety Engineer. You will exploit your safety and system engineering skills to influence the safety aspects of technically complex and challenging products. While exploring the boundaries of best practice, this will involve optimising the effort devoted to safety assurance, with the goal of balancing safety against the inherently lethal attributes required of complex weapon systems.

The Role

  • In this role you will need to balance time and cost constraints to ensure that a safety case, comprising appropriate evidence, is constructed.
  • To do this, you will need to understand the system and its operating context, so that you can decide what type of evidence will most cost-effectively show that the identified hazards have been mitigated to the customer’s satisfaction.
  • This will involve exploiting a range of techniques and approaches.

What’s great about the team?

  • You will be joining a team with a strong pedigree in the delivery of safety engineering, in a company with an excellent safety culture.
  • You will have the opportunity to share in that experience and contribute to our learning as we continue to develop our approaches and techniques.
  • You will be able to influence systems as they develop from concept to delivery and gain first-hand experience of working with military customers.

What are we looking for?

  • Demonstrable knowledge of, and experience in, the application of UK and International system engineering processes, particularly in safety-related systems, and safety assessment processes.
  • Thorough understanding and experience of how the hazard analysis process integrates with the system engineering process to influence the design.
  • Ability to deliver supporting information (Safety Case Reports, Hazard Analysis, Functional Failure Analysis, FTA, etc).
  • Good verbal, written communications analytical and problem solving skills.
  • Track record as an effective team player with strong interpersonal and influencing skills and the ability to work as part of a multi-disciplinary / multi-national team.
  • Detailed electronic engineering experience is highly desirable.
  • Experience of other engineering disciplines (design, software, manufacture, etc.) is also desirable.

What would you get?

  • Flexible working
  • Opportunities for career progression
  • Paid overtime (subject to level)
  • Great bonus scheme
  • Comprehensive pension scheme
  • Annual salary review
  • Fantastic working environment and site facilities
  • Social, charitable and sporting activities.
