Associate Director, Global Head of Robotics, Nuclear

Are you a motivated and driven team player who will naturally bring knowledge and experience of mature and proven robotic solutions from other sectors to transform the way we deliver safer, cleaner and more sustainable energy?

Across SNC-Lavalin’s nuclear business, we are driving digital transformation across our business and the wider industry, and as part of this we see increasing opportunities around the world to improve safety and efficiency through the use of robotics. We’re currently engaged in the deployment of collaborative, industrial and mobile robotics solutions to take people out of harm’s way on nuclear generation and decommissioning projects and are seeking an experienced leader of our growth in this area.

Your purpose will be:

To bring a balance between technical knowledge and strategic awareness to develop and deliver a strategy and market plan to grow the SNC-Lavalin’s nuclear robotics business. You’ll be known for paying attention to the wider context and bigger picture alongside your in-depth knowledge of the application of robotics to solve complex problems.

You’ll enjoy creating the conditions for people to grow and develop for themselves in order to develop capability to deliver complete robotic solutions. This may include a combination of upskilling, recruitment, partnering and other strategic growth options.

You’ll constantly be looking for ways to help and serve others, prioritising client engagement and winning work across key markets in Europe, North America and Asia/Pacific. And you’ll be energised by developing innovative technical and commercial solutions for the deployment of robotics on our clients’ projects. You’ll enjoy finding the right balance between technical innovation and commercial viability.

To support with all of this, you will:

  • Assume project director roles for our current portfolio of industry leading projects that seek to remove hands from gloveboxes, sort and segregate radioactive waste, deliver laser size reduction solutions and deliver unmanned inspections and data collection on site.
  • Support delivery of SNC-Lavalin’s wider nuclear digital transformation strategy, working with digital and products and technology teams around the world.
  • Act as a figurehead for robotics in nuclear, engaging with journalists, conferences and exhibitions as required.
  • Work with sales and marketing teams to publicise capability internally and externally.

What you can bring

A love of technical leadership in the field of robotics with applicable knowledge and experience in Robotic Systems. Some knowledge of industrial applications, embedded systems, Human Machine Interface (HMI) applications, robotic systems and machine vision will be needed. It will be ideal if you have some experience within high hazard or safety critical industries (but this is only desirable).

A visionary attitude, looking to the future, which will enable you to develop and deliver strategic growth plans and measure outcomes. You’ll combine this with strong business and communication skills, both to negotiate with clients and partners and to deal with external stakeholders with ease. And you’ll thrive on managing staff and innovation projects, working collaboratively across regions and organisational boundaries.

We need you to:

  • Be educated to degree level, or equivalent, in engineering or technical field. BSc/BA in Computer Science, Engineering or a related field.
  • Have experience in program planning, design & development, system manufacture, assembly, integration and test, operations, and/or maintenance of robotic systems.
  • Be able to travel as required (while maximising the use of virtual technology and recognising the current local and global travel restrictions!)

Let's shape the future by doing things right.

You might know us for the great work we do across our wide variety of projects. We're proud to say it's thanks to our people's diversity of thought, expertise and knowledge. And when you join us, you'll be a part of this genuinely collaborative environment, where everyone's voice is valued and treated equally.

We're passionate about what we do, but we don't take ourselves too seriously. Simply put, this a great place to be. So, when it comes to your life outside of work, ask us about our flexible and remote working policies designed to help you get the most out of life.
