Senior Engineer – Offshore Wind

Senior Engineer – Offshore Wind

We are looking for an outstanding candidate to join our offshore wind structural design and analysis team within our Engineering and Consulting Services business. As a Senior Engineer, you will assist the delivery of our global portfolio of projects through various levels of development (conceptual, FEED and detailed design projects) for major offshore wind assets together with developing innovative solutions for repair and upgrades.

The Role:

In the role you will be responsible for leading teams of engineers to deliver design scopes for a variety of offshore wind projects. You will require a strong understanding of stress analysis and structural analysis, and the ability to plan, develop, run, and report on complex analysis models using a range of analysis packages. You will also be responsible for guiding and mentoring junior engineers.

Atkins is a fast paced, innovative, and exciting environment to develop your career, that offers excellent opportunity to work on global offshore wind projects with exciting opportunities for technical and personal development. The right individual will play a key part in maintaining our best in class reputation and be part of an integrated team.

The ever-changing conditions of Offshore Wind Industry means we need individuals who can adapt, change and thrive when working in dynamic environments. Our global opportunities and innovation initiatives will allow you to excel and build upon your strengths as we continue our growth into existing and exciting emerging markets.

Our Engineering and Consulting Services business is delivering engineering, design and consultancy solutions to the oil and gas, renewables, electrical generation, transmission and distribution sectors all over the world. Although your role will focus on the offshore wind market, you may also be called upon to support projects in other markets, such as supporting our industry leading work in the structural integrity management of offshore oil and gas structures.
