Graduate Human Factors Engineer

Nuclear Engineering and Safety Consultants (NESC Ltd) is a Nuclear Safety Engineering company with strong links to the Naval Nuclear programme and in particular Southern Defence organisations.

NESC Ltd also has a client link to other consultancy services who branch out into almost all areas of the nuclear industry. Therefore, our employees get to experience working in both Defence and Civil Nuclear environments

NESC recognises that in order to maintain and grow, we are reliant on the identification/retention of highly motivated suitably qualified and experienced people (SQEP). As a result, we currently have a vacancy for a Graduate Human Factors Engineer based out of our Plymouth office.

Why You?

At NESC, we understand the need to employ individuals who are highly organised, show excellent leadership capabilities and have the attitude to want to deliver to the highest standard. We also want to be able to see that you can communicate effectively and demonstrate this whilst working within an experienced team. We recognise what graduates can offer to an organisation and appreciate the number of skills they possess.

Why Work for NESC?

Due to the nature of work at NESC, the organisation works alongside large international engineering corporations, including Tier 1 nuclear clients. Working with a number of large organisations in a Defence and Civil Nuclear setting will make the job stimulating and satisfying as you will be working on a variety of projects.

With NESC, you will be supported by our expert engineers from the moment you join us, all the way through your career. You will be encouraged to express your ideas and make your own decisions in a team of highly experienced engineers, allowing for the continued development of your communication, problem-solving and teamwork skills.

About the role

Right now, we are looking for graduates to join our developing team of engineers based in our office in Plymouth, UK.

NESC undertakes work using several Human Factors specialisms and with a range of individuals at the full spectrum of experience.

As a Human Factors Engineer at NESC, you would be investigating and analysing characteristics of human behaviour and performance relating to the use of nuclear technology, supporting both defence and civil nuclear sectors.

You will also be working as part of a Nuclear Safety Team and will be involved in the development and delivery of Nuclear Safety Cases. Subsequently, this role will allow you to develop an understanding of nuclear safety and radiological protection processes.

Once you’ve started your career, we will fund your development through the continuation of training. Through the experience you gain whilst training, we will then support you with obtaining Chartership in order to become a professional engineer.
