About PPP

The Programme and Project Partners (PPP) at Sellafield brings together KBR, Jacobs, Morgan Sindall Infrastructure, Altrad Babcock, Sellafield Ltd as the client, and a wider supply chain to deliver a 20-year pipeline of major infrastructure projects.

This 20-year pipeline of work along with the size, scale and complexity of our projects allows us to offer our people rewarding long-term opportunities with the ability to develop their skills and progress their careers.

The PPP Start Up Capability (Commissioning & Pre-Operations) play a vital part in all the projects by ensuring our new-build or modified plants are transitioned to safe and reliable operations. With several major projects already in-flight and other projects in the pipeline now is a great time to join PPP and drive your career forward.

The role

As a Lead Commissioning Engineer you will direct a team in the delivery of work and ensure activities are delivered in line with the established Start Up, Commissioning and Pre-Operations processes. This will include developing and executing delivery plans in line with project schedules, as well as reviewing and reporting on work progress and taking corrective actions where necessary. You will work as part of a multi-disciplinary team but will also collaborate regularly with other teams in your project as well as external vendors and stakeholders.  Lead Engineers are seen as our Managers and Senior Managers of the future, so this is a great opportunity to progress your career as part of a long-term programme of work.

The ideal person

You will have an HNC or equivalent Level 4 qualification in a relevant discipline as well as experience of leading and/ or supervising a team in technical/ engineering environment. The scale and complexity of our projects mean that you will collaborate with a wide range of stakeholders so it’s important that you have excellent communication skills. It’s also key that you have good leadership skills and enjoy supervising a team as we’d love to develop this further as your career progresses. 

Experience of working in Nuclear or a highly regulated environment is nice to have but if you are new to the industry and have the relevant skills and experience then we would love to hear from you.

Morgan Sindall has a commitment to sourcing candidates directly and as such we do not accept speculative CV’s from agencies. Please note that any CV’s submitted will be deemed as gifted to Morgan Sindall and any agency terms & conditions associated with the use of such CVs will be null and void.
