Background to the role

As part of unprecedented growth in projects in Risktec's railway sector, Risktec is seeking experienced risk and safety engineering professionals to support the delivery of existing rail sector projects, as well as driving growth in this business area. The roles are based in Risktec's Derby and London offices; flexible and hybrid working arrangements are also available.


You will:
  • Have a proven track record of producing safety engineering deliverables, including both qualitative and quantitative safety engineering tools and techniques, across the project lifecycle in high-hazard industries, notably rail.
  • Have knowledge of current UK railway safety legislation and the processes by which projects are safely delivered, e.g. in accordance with the Common Safety Method for Risk Evaluation and Assessment (CSM REA) is highly desirable.
  • Be willing to work on multiple, concurrent projects across rail technologies, from rolling stock to signalling, telecoms and infrastructure upgrades. A willingness to diversify to support the delivery of safety engineering projects in other high-hazard industries is desirable, but not necessary.
  • Be educated to degree level (or equivalent) within a science or engineering discipline. Professional accreditation / membership to a recognised organisation (e.g. IMechE, IET) is desirable but not mandatory.

In return, you will expect a competitive remuneration package commensurate with your experience plus profit share, private medical insurance, and contributions into a pension scheme.
