Thomas Thor are working in partnership with Morson Talent and Rolls-Royce SMR (Small Modular Reactor) to recruit a Senior Reactor Plant Analyst Technical Lead (Thermal Hydraulic) to join their team in Derby or Warrington, who will be responsible for the technical and programme delivery of the thermal and hydraulic performance analysis to verify reactor protection during transient and faulted operations.
Rolls-Royce SMR is a start-up joint special purpose vehicle (SPV) business, specifically created to design, construct and deliver a new fleet of Small Modular Reactors power plants that will be a critical and strategic player in the race to Net Zero carbon emissions globally. Spun out of Rolls-Royce with its pedigree in engineering excellence but also attracting world class inward investment this is an exciting new business with an optimistic opportunity to be a global player in the coming years. Their Intellectual Property and resource expertise has grown from an organization that has already designed and delivered over 35 nuclear reactors for use in the UK’s Royal Navy Submarine program. That’s combined with the knowledge and unique aerospace experience of manufacturing expertise, supply chain management and logistics.
SMR is an integrated power station, that takes well understood, existing nuclear technology and applies a factory-based philosophy to its fabrication and assembly to provide clean, affordable energy for all. Just one SMR can power one million homes for sixty years!
The role will involve working alongside systems design team to understand the technical nature of the reactor plant design and produce thermal hydraulic analyses which characterises system performance, informs intelligent design decisions and ultimately verifies the performance and safety of the final design.
The successful candidate will provide technical leadership and coordination of a small team of engineers to ensure the delivery of analysis which supports design development of the reactor protection systems (including scram and boron injection), informs code validation activities and ultimately underpins the reactor plant safety case during Generic Design Assessment (GDA) by the Office of Nuclear Regulation (ONR). This will include leading the development of robust and validated analysis methods using industry standard approaches, the creation and management of representative models, and assessment of transient performance during faulted and safety systems operations.
Central to their operations is the creation of an inclusive workplace with a colleague community that is representative of the diverse regions in which we operate. They are committed to equality of opportunity for all employees and applications from individuals are encouraged regardless of age, disability, sex, gender reassignment, sexual orientation, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, and marriage and civil partnerships.
