We are Rolls-Royce SMR and we’re doing something that’s never been done before. We’re revolutionising an industry. That’s a once-in-a-career opportunity for those excited by such a challenge. This is more than just a job this is a legacy.

We are now recruiting for an Electrical Team Leader to be involved in delivering an industry leading, cutting-edge design project for a new type of nuclear power station.

What we’re looking for

Provide technical leadership and expertise across the lifecycle of Electrical Systems for the SMR nuclear power plant. As the Electrical Team Leader for the Cross Cutting team, you’ll develop and manage a team of electrical engineers, setting the work plan on a number of cross cutting topics. The teams scope includes work on topic such as cable system design, electrical modularisation, standardisation, electrical layout, systems engineering and management of the electrical load schedule as well as a number of other areas. This covers the delivery of the complete design of the identified systems, spanning system architecture, sub-system design and equipment specification and design / selection to realise the final verified design of the power station.

You’ll need to develop relationships with and work closely with the engineering teams from across the power station and applying a structured systems engineering approach to design.

The role involves working across the whole lifecycle of Electrical systems both classified for nuclear safety applications as well as non-classified.
Key selection criteria for this role are:

Demonstration of technically reviewing and approving of design outputs from other discipline engineers would be an advantage.

Knowledge in using electrical design packages to perform electrical system analysis and develop cable system design is desirable, with practical experience a further advantage.
