An opportunity has arisen for a Safety Engineer to exploit their safety and system engineering skills to influence the safety aspects of technically complex and challenging products. While exploring the boundaries of best practice, this will involve optimising the effort devoted to safety assurance, with the goal of balancing safety against the inherently lethal attributes required of complex weapon systems.
We can provide a variety of project work that will allow you to apply the breadth of your safety engineering skillsets and experience and develop a deep understanding of the technologies involved.
Alongside core engineering projects there are opportunities to conduct internally funded research packages.
Safety Engineer Role
By understanding the system and its operating context, as the safety engineer, you will decide what type of evidence will most cost-effectively show that the identified hazards have been mitigated to the customer’s satisfaction, using a range of techniques and approaches. This role is about balancing time and cost constraints to ensure that a convincing safety case, comprising of appropriate evidence, is constructed.
Safety Engineer experience required
  • Thorough understanding and experience of how the hazard analysis and safety evaluation processes integrate with the system engineering process
  • Ability to deliver supporting information (Safety Case Reports, Hazard Analysis, Functional Failure Analysis, FTA, etc).
  • Demonstrable knowledge of, and experience in, the application of UK and International system engineering processes.
  • Good knowledge of complex electronic systems and the associated safety issues (but other engineering subject areas, such as design, software, manufacture, etc, will be considered for candidates with the right strengths in other areas).
  • Track record as an effective teammate with strong interpersonal and influencing skills and the ability to work as part of a multi-disciplinary / multi-national team.
