About us

Assystem is the second largest Nuclear Engineering organisation and provides technical engineering support across the world, supporting complex Nuclear New Build, Decommissioning and Defence programmes.

Assystem, more than 50 years of experience as an engineering company

Assystem is an international & independent engineering company, operating in 10 countries with 6,000 employees.

It is a fantastic time to join the industry. Nuclear in the UK, is seeing a recent renaissance with the UK government pledging it’s support for both large and small-scale nuclear energy projects.

We are currently looking for a Graduate Electrical Engineer to join our expanding nuclear new build team in Bristol.

Main Duties

  • Contribute to the development of design packages for Electrical, Control and Instrumentation based systems, for a variety of clients (mostly nuclear, but also some other energy transition focused organisations).
  • Support site construction and commissioning work.
  • Deliver a broad range of engineering consultancy and support services to a variety of Assystem clients.
  • Present findings internally to Assystem teams and externally to clients, requiring excellent communication and presentation skills.
  • Act independently, or under instruction from an Assystem Lead Engineer.
  • Work within budgets for assigned tasks.
  • Work in accordance with the Assystem Quality Management System.
  • Assist in proposal writing and other related bidding activities when required.
  • Offer solutions to issues as they arise, rather than simply reporting problems for others to solve.
  • Bring fresh and innovative approaches to the way we deliver work.

What we are looking for 

  • Minimum 2:1 BEng qualification in Engineering (Electrical, Electronic, Systems, Software).
  • A keen interest in emerging digital technologies.
  • An appreciation of the other main engineering disciplines, and the interactions with EC&I.
  • The ability to methodologically approach tasks and provide justification for the decisions made during the completion of the simulation.
  • The ability to plan and manage your own time within a time-constrained project environment.
  • A desire to learn, and a keen mind.

What you’ll gain by joining us

  • Access to a large team of experienced EC&I engineers who are committed to helping develop the next generation of engineers.
  • High turnover of projects and customers for diverse experience. You won’t get bored in multi-year projects.
  • Exposure to a wide range of clients on sites all around the UK
  • Experience of working under pressure to deliver on time, to cost, and to a high level of quality. You won’t be alone, but you will be responsible and expected to deliver (and ask for help when you can’t).
  • Ability to move to different Assystem sites (and customer placements) nationally and internationally, if that is what you’d like to do.

We've signed the Gradcracker feedback pledge.

(This means that we will supply feedback if requested after an interview.)
