Principal Consultant- Safety Case and Technical/ Project Lead

Orano Projects has an exciting opportunity for a Prinicipal Consultant (Safety Case and Technical/ Project Lead) to join their team. 

This is a senior position within the Company and requires a high level of technical knowledge and ability to develop and present robust and reasoned arguments in a rational and coherent manner - to deliver consultancy and manage projects to a high level, that meet, and ideally exceed, client expectations particularly on technical excellence, quality of deliverable but also on timescales and cost, in a way that supports the long term growth of the business and its reputation.

Technically the role requires a wide and comprehensive variety of industry, legislative and technical knowledge in areas such as decommissioning (strategy, optioneering) decontamination (best practice), transport, human factors, waste management (hierarchy, waste led decommissioning) as well as client specific systems, with experience in all aspects of pulling together and delivering a coherent and robust safety case along with the ability to present the associated technical arguments to clients, their in-house safety teams and, when needed, safety committees.

In project terms, it is to manage this work (generally in the form of complex safety cases) either as the lead safety case author or as the technical lead for a particularly complex part of the safety argument needed, that delivers work in the time and to the programme agreed whilst keeping track of the project (all aspects) and keeping all concerned informed of both technical and financial progress (with the support of the project controller).

The role also involves developing skills in growing projects, identifying opportunities with clients and supporting, mentoring, coaching and helping others to develop within the business.
