Team information:

In this role, you’ll be part of one of our Asset Integrity teams. In this discipline, you will be using your skills to understand the strength, life, and dynamics of mechanical components, systems, and facilities. You will work on projects throughout their lifecycle from understanding novel concepts and assuring new products, through the safe ongoing operation of equipment, to life extension, and, ultimately, decommissioning at end-of-life. Our teams work across industrial sectors and at any one time you could be working on projects covering renewable energy generation, new fusion energy generating technologies, Royal Navy ships, and future transport solutions.

Community and culture are very important to us, and you will join a friendly and open team with a wealth of experiences, from those who may be a year or two ahead of you in their careers to our world class principal consultants with their decades of know-how and experience to share.

We also know that delivering technical projects is only part of your role, so you’ll have opportunity to develop new tools and techniques, build client relationships, work on commercial proposals and share your work at international conferences and journals. There’s much more too ….

What you’ll be doing at Frazer-Nash?

Your fundamental understanding of strength of materials, structural mechanics and dynamics will be put to the test every day as you seek to gain insight into our clients’ challenges. You will use this understanding to shape the solutions we provide, applying start-of-the-art Finite Element analysis techniques and bespoke analytical methods, developing measurement systems to gain valuable information on real-world operations, or pioneering data science and machine learning methods to extract even more insight.

You will be responsible for your own work from day one but working as part of a client-facing project delivery team. As you gain experience you will begin to take responsibility for your own projects which will grow in size and complexity as you progress, and in future years you will work towards our most senior project governance roles.

From time-to-time there will also be the opportunity to support our clients working on site either local to your office, elsewhere in the UK or perhaps even abroad. These opportunities offer the potential to experience some large and internationally important projects up close and through a new lens

What you’ll need?

We are looking for intelligent, inquisitive and creative individuals, who are good communicators and

can solve challenging problems. We embrace diversity, innovation and collaboration at Frazer-Nash and provide the opportunity for talented people like you to work on projects that make a difference to our world.

For this position you will need:

  • Working towards and be on course to achieve a degree qualification with grade 2:1 or above in Mechanical Engineering, Aeronautical Engineering or a similar engineering discipline.
  • An interest in and an aptitude for solving structural integrity and dynamics problems using a range of methods from analytical methods to high performance computing and measurement techniques.
  • The ability to communicate effectively with internal and external project stakeholders through various media (e.g. reports, presentations and meetings) to deliver impactful advice on budget and on time.

The following attributes are highly desirable for this position:

  • Experience of working in industry and/or consultancy through previous internships.
  • Degree-level specialism in structures, solid mechanics and dynamics engineering discipline as evidenced through group and/or individual project work in this field.
  • Experience of leading teams within University projects and/or in extracurricular activities/hobbies.
  • Skills in computing coding and scripting using tools such as Python or Matlab.

The nature of our work means that we sometimes require staff to access Government material, it is therefore necessary for all our employees to gain appropriate security clearance. We will apply for clearance if you have successfully been selected for a position, and we will decide if we can successfully gain full clearance on your behalf based on the content of your application. Any offer of employment is subject to this requirement being met.
