About the role:
- Take a global overview of the nuclear power plant Systems, Structures and Components (SSCs) within their scope, with a view to maximise replication from HPC and prepare for key contracts to be awarded.
- Be responsible for the timely delivery of engineering studies by the RD or by key contractors and for ensuring they meet the needs of the SZC project.
- Prepare with the multidisciplinary team specific post-FID contracts (terms & conditions, contractual appendices and technical specification)
- Drive the implementation of SZC site-specific design changes into the design deliverables in their programme, including contract specifications to enable robust pricing.
- Manage internal interfaces (between contracts and systems) and external interfaces (between programme scopes) to ensure a coordinated approach to design and delivery.
- Manage early engagement with stakeholders (including equipment suppliers) to identify obsolescence issues and other risks to replication.
- Manage the technical elements of the procurement process for specific contracts.
- Maintain strong links with the project managers and engineers responsible for delivering equivalent scope at Hinkley Point C and implement all lessons learned.
