Arup is an independent firm of designers, planners, engineers, consultants and technical specialists offering a broad range of professional services. Through our work, we make a positive difference in the world.

In December 2012 a Joint Venture of Arup and Morgan Sindall Group was appointed as the delivery partner to Sellafield Ltd for their Infrastructure Strategic Alliance (ISA).  Sellafield Ltd are responsible for the long term decommissioning and clean-up of the former nuclear power generation facilities at the Sellafield site, which is one of the most complex industrial plants in the world and presents many unique challenges.  Our role is to prioritise, plan, programme, manage and deliver a range of non-nuclear essential infrastructure services including all utilities, transport and supporting buildings. The contract will run for up to 15 years and is expected to generate revenue to our Joint Venture of between £1bn and £1.5bn.  As a result, we are building a core team of highly-skilled specialists, based in West Cumbria and co-located with our partners. 

Reporting directly to the Engineering Design Director/Process Team Leader you will be a key senior member within this close-knit, multi-disciplinary core team that directs and advises a wider team of over 50 staff.  An  important  part of the role will be to interface with the Sellafield engineering discipline to understand needs and develop a strong working relationship.  As part of the Arup ISA core team, your expertise will be integral in ensuring the success of the program by advising, scoping, and planning smart in order to deliver lean while retaining technical excellence in our front end engineering services.  The standardisation of your designs, approach and works will be key to the continued success and sustainment of the program. 

Working very closely with the Design Manager and Planning manager as well as the ISA Programme Managers you will be responsible for understanding and assisting in the delivery of the integrated programme of works: in particular, you will provide technical support related to Process Engineering design across all streams of work e.g. feasibility studies, investigations, first point of contact for technical queries, project technical inputs and long-term technical requirements.  Specifically, you will provide support to the engineering design for the site utilities which includes high and low pressure stream systems, bulk chemical storage and transfer, compressed air and vacuum systems, process water and wastewater treatment, solids handling, anaerobic treatment and odour control systems, development of heat and mass balances, equipment specifications along with piping and instrument diagrams, design interpretation and re-evaluation.  Your technical knowledge will result in the successful and timely execution of a variety of projects ranging from small-large in size (up to c£20m).

Input into the capital program and the opportunity to work both on specific programs and provide program-wide guidance is essential in order to ensure we provide a joined up holistic and lean approach.  This is a key, senior Arup appointment within ISA team.  Your duties will be highly varied including: studies for future planning, preparation of contract documentation, sub-consultancy agreements, client meetings, ‘fast response’ emergent work delivery, work packages, attending multi-disciplinary meetings, providing a ‘first point of contact’ service to the client for technical queries and even scheduling projects where needed.

It is essential that you have excellent communication and interpersonal skills, as you will be a key technical ambassador for Arup on the ISA Programme, working closely with our client as well as the wider engineering community.  You will be a self-motivated, proactive, realistic and collaborative individual that strives to deliver solutions of the highest quality and exhibits an excellent attention to detail: your actions should inspire confidence in clients, partners and peers alike.
