Job Requirements/Description

Stirling Dynamics is recruiting trainee safety engineers to join our Systems & Safety team.

Due to expanding project needs, Stirling Dynamics have an exciting opportunity for multiple talented engineers who are looking for new opportunities to develop and grow their skills towards a career in safety. We have created a Safety Engineer training programme designed for engineers who have some experience within Systems Engineering and are looking to change specialisms.

The successful engineers will be part of Stirling’s Systems & Safety team and will work on a variety of projects related to the next generation marine and aerospace applications. The role offers a unique opportunity to receive targeted training (internally and externally provided) across many aspects of systems safety, covering the full development life-cycle.

The role provides opportunities to work across all stages of the design cycle from concept phase through to certification, giving the candidate a broad range of experience to support them in the development of their career. The role gives a unique opportunity to work on varied projects such as, commercial aviation and submarines, through to the development of designs within the new areas of aircraft electrification and urban air mobility including eVTOL aircraft.

The successful candidate must have a keen interest in safety. The ideal candidate would be someone who has 2-3 years of systems engineering experience but would like to adjust their career path towards safety specifically.

The Safety Engineers will be predominantly based in our Bristol office with occasional travel to our clients’ sites as required. As part of our commitment to flexibility, employees can work part of the week from home.

As the successful candidates will need to be able to support marine projects, they must be eligible to obtain SC clearance. 

Responsibilities

The Safety Engineer role will suit engineers looking to diversify their experience and work within a team responsible for guiding safety programme requirements, creating evidence and deliverables to support product safety argument generation and offering expert safety consultancy services to our business and our customers on multiple and varied projects.

Training will be provided by members of Stirling’s Systems & Safety team, which will focus on recognised safety methodologies/techniques, and Stirling’s business-related safety requirements/experience such as:

  • ARP4761A & ARP4754A
  • FHA (Functional Hazard Analysis)
  • FTA (Fault Tree Analysis)
  • Common Cause Analysis – Particular Risk, Common Mode & Zonal Safety Assessment
  • FMEA (Failure Mode Effect Analysis), FMES (Failure Mode Effect Summary)
  • Hardware & Software safety
  • Route to certification

The successful candidate will also attend an external training course to supplement the internal learning.

The candidate will broaden their wider engineering skills by working in multi-disciplinary teams, engaging with customers, and helping contribute to the business’ internal safety techniques and processes.

The candidate must have a keen interest in safety methods and processes, a willingness to learn and strong interpersonal skills.

Candidates will have the following responsibilities upon completion of the training programme:

  • Guiding safety programme requirements for our business’ or our customers products/equipment/systems
  • Contribute to a variety of different analyses methods/techniques (FHA, PSSA/SSA, FTA, FMEA, PRA etc.) as part of the safety process
  • Work with experienced colleagues to develop evidence and deliverables demonstrating the safety credentials of the system/equipment under design or modification for our own products and/or for our customers.

Qualifications

  • Candidates will ideally be degree qualified (or equivalent), in a related discipline preferably Aerospace Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Physics, Electrical Engineering, Mathematics or a similar course with high technical content.

Skills

Systems Engineering:

  • Aerospace industry experience (civil/military aviation, CS-23, CS-27, CS-25 certification)
  • Defence/Marine industry experience (CADMID life-cycle)

Personal Characteristics

  • Confidentiality
  • Flexible, can-do approach
  • Ability to deal with multiple conflicting requests
  • Professional attitude
  • Self-motivated to see tasks through to successful completion
  • Desired Skills
  • Training will be provided but any of the following is beneficial:
  • Hydro-actuated systems
  • Electro-mechanical actuated systems
  • Requirements management (DOORS, Polarion, Jama)

Experience

  • 2-3 years of industry experience, preferably within Systems Engineering.

Benefits

  • Comprehensive training provided (using a range of internally developed courses and external training).
  • Competitive Package - £30,000 - £40,000 dependent on experience.
  • We offer a range of benefits to our employees to recognise their efforts. Playing hard is equally as important as working hard, so regular events are held throughout the year which provide an ideal opportunity to mix socially
