Prepare to award engineering and construction contracts, managing the technical elements of the procurement process as part of a multidisciplinary team.

Drive the implementation of SZC site-specific design changes into the design deliverables, including contract specifications to enable robust pricing.

Manage interfaces between contracts and programmes to ensure a coordinated approach to design and delivery.

Manage early engagement with stakeholders (including equipment suppliers) to identify obsolescence issues and other risks to replication.

Maintain strong links with the project managers and engineers responsible for delivering equivalent scope at Hinkley Point C and implement all lessons learned.

Knowledge, Skills, Qualifications & Experience Essential:

Background in electrical engineering.

Experience of coordinating multi-disciplinary design/procurement work and driving design/procurement teams to deliver on time.
