We require a suitably qualified and experienced Human Factors (HF) engineer to provide specialist support to the developing nuclear safety case.

The HF engineer will be capable of providing professional guidance to the Safety Manager and Design Manager on all aspects of HF engineering, including issues relating to both current and future designs. This may include a requirement to provide specialist support on anthropometric and ergonomic issues. The candidate will also be required to assist in the development and generation of the administrative measures associated with the new facility, and manage and support the production of the associated HF substantiation documentation.

  • You (the candidate) will have the ability to provide advice on the development of 'Procedural Controls' and 'Roles and Responsibilities' for the new facility. The candidate should be familiar with the undertaking of both quantitative HF analysis, as well as the qualitative substantiation of the human performance aspects of the process/ system.
  • You will ideally have a nuclear related experience, preferably within the wider submarine enterprise and have performed at practitioner level over a number of projects.

  • You should also have a sound working knowledge of Licensee and wider Regulatory expectations relating to HF engineering and substantiation (including performance assurance).
