Date Added:

1st May 2023

What’s the role?

We are in search of an Associate Director to lead and grow our process safety team across the UK with ambition to move into a Director’s position within the next 2 years.

We’d love to hear from you if you have:

  • A relevant technical degree (ideally in Chemical or Mechanical Engineering) with strong mathematical and analytical skills. A higher additional process safety related qualification (e.g. MSc) would be a distinct advantage
  • Chartered Engineer status with membership of a relevant professional body (e.g. IChemE/IMechE/EI)
  • Experience of applying your process safety knowledge within the oil and gas, chemical, nuclear or other high hazard sectors. This could perhaps be within an operating company, as a regulator, project engineer or consultant
  • Operational experience of process safety management, including topics such as leadership, culture, competency, asset integrity, permit to work, isolations, and operating procedures. Experience of PSM auditing would be particularly welcome
  • Knowledge of applicable UK Health & Safety Law
  • An understanding of process safety related risk assessment methodologies and standards (such as HAZID, PHR, SIL, LOPA, FMEA, PSM, HAZOP, PHA, DSEAR, Occupied Buildings, Bowtie Assessments, Hazardous Area Classification, Major Accidents & Disasters, QRA), and experience of their practical application, including leading or participating in studies
