The Opportunity...

At Hinkley Point C (HPC) we are building two new nuclear reactors, the first in a new generation of nuclear power stations in the UK providing low carbon electricity for around six million homes.

EPR-E is responsible for delivering the design for a number of NI buildings, systems and equipment contracts for the Hinkley Point C EPR Project through an integrated team, support to HPC construction and commissioning activities, and preparing design replication feasibility and engineering activities for the Sizewell C Project. Therefore, a Technical Directorate is being created, responsible for the engineering disciplines and technical expertise required to deliver the different engineering projects through integrated teams in EPR-E.

We are currently seeking a junior to mid-grade engineer to join our esteemed piping design team.

As a Piping Engineer, you'll play a crucial role in the detailed design of a 300km piping network for the Nuclear Island, overseeing the process from the outset to fabrication and erection on site. Your contributions will be integral to our Open Point and UK Design Change management processes, ensuring all impacts are accurately categorised and logged for resolution.
