At Frazer-Nash we care, and the work we do makes a difference in the world. Our safety support to nuclear new build projects that will contribute to achieving net-zero, continues to grow. As such, an opportunity exists to join an established safety team with a substantial fire engineering capability, which we seek to expand further.

We are searching for engineers seeking a career in fire safety in the nuclear industry, to work on nuclear new build, decommissioning, and fusion projects. This would include fire risk assessments and fire modelling, and working with nuclear safety professionals to produce fire hazard analyses. Whilst this opportunity is focussed on nuclear, there will be opportunities to work in other safety critical sectors (e.g. rail, maritime, aerospace) and in new markets relating to clean energy systems and renewables where there are fire safety hazards (e.g. hydrogen, and lithium battery storage).

The Energy Business Unit is a vibrant and growing area with a focus on delivery of high quality expertise and services across multiple energy sectors and development of staff and tools to operate within highly regulated industries. In particular, the Energy Assurance unit provides significant support to the Civil Nuclear Sector deploying engineering and safety case skills across Decommissioning, Fusion, Generation and New Build areas. It is an exciting time across all of these sectors. Frazer-Nash Consultancy are looking to bolster this team with talented individuals to continue to develop our service delivery and increase our support to the nuclear market.

If you are excited about the prospects of working on high profile infrastructure projects in nuclear and in other sectors, please apply.

  • Degree in Fire Engineering OR
  • Degree in a Science/Engineering/Maths, AND an MSc in Fire Safety Engineering (or equivalence by experience).

  • Good written and verbal skills.
  • Comfortable working in a project team.
  • Chartered (or willing to work towards being chartered) with a relevant Institute (e.g. the Institution of Fire Engineers).

  • Some working experience in the Nuclear Industry or other High Hazard industry in a Fire Safety-Engineering / Safety-Case role.
  • Experience of working in Safety Case / Engineering teams.
  • Enthusiasm for clean energy systems such as hydrogen, and lithium battery storage.
