Design Proposal Drawings
Functional Specifications/ Functional Requirements Documents
Technical Reports and Studies
Design Justification Reports
Qualifications / Experience
Degree-level or an equivalent qualification in a relevant Engineering discipline, or equivalent relevant experience
You will preferably be Chartered, though this is a desirable
Significant experience of producing mechanical design deliverables, preferably within the nuclear industry
Good knowledge and hands on experience of fabrication techniques, geometric tolerancing, weld symbols, limits and fits and surface finish
A working knowledge of Inventor and AutoCAD too
As well having knowledge and experience in applying relevant EH&S legislation and directives, you'll need to have taken part in designers risk assessments, design reviews and (ideally) in HAZOP studies.
