We are seeking additional Configuration Managers to support business and our end-user delivery teams. This will bring an additional configuration management understanding (to passive and active systems including Class 1 and 2), with multi-disciplinary engineering knowledge and in depth understanding of Elec, Mech, HVAC, Process, C&I, Civil engineering disciples that will be complimented with the ability of delivery resolution, conflict mediation, and open point resolution / solution oriented approaches with taking ownership to bring delivery successes.
You will be responsible for the delivery of the key requirements which will include:
  • Register of managed baselines (having been through gap analysis and confirmation process to ensure the correct baselines are being established and managed).
  • Baseline owners register (baseline interfacing to support owners accountable for the quality of the content held within the baseline register and is validated).
  • Integration with multiple project areas to ensure all baselines can be mapped, understood, and information is accessible, and accurate when required.
  • Integration with the project lifecycle delivery package and engineering teams to ensure that the baselines are updated, maintained at project delivery/handover is robust and successful.
  • Facilitate, Manage, Mediate, Support and Resolve blockers and issues encountered.
  • Show presence, establish working relationships and techniques to gain completion success
  • Provide status and report visibility, of successes, needs and closure strategies.
Key responsibilities will also include:
  • Establish, implement and maintain formal audit processes to check that Configuration is being managed internally and externally across the project delivery organisation into the nuclear baseline.
  • Establish and maintain the agreed standards to be followed by the site teams and support the delivery improvements to gain the successes · targeted, and report accordingly status and blockers, with were possible providing solutions balanced with governance.
  • Identification of the Baselines, and gaps that need to be captured and managed to completion.
  • Configuration management – procedure development, enhancement, and integration with the Change Process.

In order to fulfil these role requirements, the following skills and experience are essential:
  • Extensive experience of the high-end regulatory industry preferred in a similar role, which is demonstrable in complex assets and facilities (nuclear preferable).
  • Demonstrable industry understanding of configuration management, or the fundamental blocks established as to build on, with minim of construction projects handover, operations regulator understanding and used of effective validation requirements.
  • Founded understanding of RCA techniques and the methods associated to determine route causse and have a clear appreciation of the required approaches to non-conformances, error, gaps identification, design closure and remedy of resolutions.
In order to fulfil this role a combination of several the following skills and experience are highly desirable and essential:
  • Knowledge and understanding of safety critical systems and specifications including the appropriate legislation, standards, and directives along with the management of appropriate activities such as FMECA, HAZOP, HAZID.
  • Knowledge of passive and active systems, systems integration, and assets to class 1, 2 and 3 for complex assets and facilities with the knowledge from requirements for the full lifecycle of detailed design, including Substantiation and Equipment Qualification assessment to final stage commissioning and handover.
  • An understanding of design phases and integration across the full V cycle, with design validation and verifications with version management and control.
  • Experience of Electrical, Control & Instrumentation (hardware and software), Security, Mechanical Handling, Process, Ventilations, Bespoke Assets, Civils and Structural integration for applications in critical assets, machinery, radiological monitoring, and process plant.
  • Experience of designing/leading and in particular the completion of active and passive systems packages.
  • Demonstrable and sound technical knowledge of theoretical and practical design and operations aspects of system engineering of passive assets and facilities of similar high security nature
  • Experience with plant and documentation configuration management.
  • Ability to demonstrate Design, Construction and Delivery Issues and Gap Identification, evidencing, and case build-up as to apply resolution to open points, blockers encountered.
  • Demonstrable evidence of the full understanding of the full life cycle of a complex asset in the nuclear industry or similar heavily regulated industries.
  • Understanding of passive and actives assets for Function Design, Technical and Performance Specifications Development and Writing.
  • An awareness of how the component engineering, system aspects align and integrate within a complex asset and project environment that could translate into a latent defect or unwanted safety condition.
