  1. Bristol

Principal /Senior Engineer - Electrical


 

Atkins, a member of SNC-Lavalin is one of the world’s most respected design, engineering and project management consultancies, with over 50,000 employees worldwide. At Atkins, we offer more than just a job. We offer an opportunity to make a difference and shape the world to benefit future generations and the natural environment. Drawing upon a diverse skill set and a proven track record of delivery we are playing a leading role in some of the world’s most challenging and exciting engineering projects across sectors including Aviation, Defence, Energy, Cities and Development, Education, Rail and Water.

We have an immediate opportunity for an Principal/Senior Electrical Engineer to take on a role seconded to a major project team based on site in Plymouth. The role will involve leading and managing one or more technical design packages; agreeing project related objectives, managing designer performance and making appropriate technical management responses.

Role Location: Due to Covid-19 the opportunity will currently involve being based from home but after the restrictions the role will be fully site-based. Atkins have a long-term pipeline of projects in the South West of England and especially, in the case of this opportunity, in Plymouth. The role will initially be based in Plymouth for the medium term (18-24 months) and will suit local candidates but also those looking to relocate to one of the most picturesque areas in the UK – next to Dartmoor and close to great beaches.

Secondment Details: Although the secondment is based in Plymouth we recognise that talented Engineers from across the region might be interested in this opportunity but are unable to commute to this location. With this in mind, for non-local candidates, we can offer a secondment package that includes accommodation, out-of-pocket expenses and a working week that allows for 4 longer days on site and a shorter Friday working from home or Atkins office.   

If you are looking for a challenging and rewarding opportunity to apply knowledge, experience and problem-solving skills on one of the leading complex UK-based engineering projects then we would welcome your application.

  • Plan for effective project implementation, identifying key factors and leading the project’s technical planning process.
  • Ensure that staff and contractors are familiar with the hazards and risks associated with the work undertaken through effective management and communication of the Risk Assessment.

Requirements

  • Appropriate qualification in Building Services, Mechanical Engineering and Chartered with a relevant institution
  • Ability to influence senior management and peers within the industry and positively challenge
  • Experience in either Energy, Defense or related sectors advantageous
  • Extensive project experience, involving high levels of technical competence

  • Demonstrable leadership and people management skills with the ability to run a team
  • Good commercial awareness, business management skills and results orientation
  • Confident ability with good communication skills and a professional approach to clients and other Atkins employees
  • Flexibility around work location – initial secondment and work to be in Plymouth with home office of Bristol or Exeter.
