Manufacturing Surveillance Engineer (Mechanical / Electrical & I&C)

The Opportunity

The Manufacturing Surveillance Engineer (Electrical and I&C) will be required to review and accept manufacturing surveillance programmes for Electrical and I&C systems and components issued by sub-

contracted inspection agencies. These sub-contracted inspection agencies will perform manufacturing surveillance of the supply chain for the HPC project, in particular the review of manufacturing related technical and quality control documentation and in-

factory inspection activities. You will be required to both coordinate and monitor these sub-contracted activities and also lead the technical review of supplier manufacturing documentation performed by internal stakeholders.

You will be required to undertake in-factory inspections, when required, to issue internal progress monitoring reports, and participate in progress meetings.

EDF Energy is at the heart of the UK’s new nuclear build programme. The nuclear power stations we are building are the first in a new generation.

A career in this area is a truly unique opportunity an opportunity to be at the forefront of new nuclear, and to enjoy a long and fruitful career helping us deliver the first nuclear power stations in the UK for twenty years.

The first station to be built will be Hinkley Point C (the HPC project) in Somerset, sited next to Hinkley Point A and B stations.

This will be followed by two new EPR reactors at Sizewell C in Suffolk. Together these will form one of the biggest construction projects in Europe and they offer the chance to gain invaluable experience working with the latest reactor technology.
