Here at Cavendish Nuclear we’re looking for a Senior Electrical Controls & Instrumentation (EC&I) Designer to join us in our Leicester Office. From here we serve customers to deliver a range of projects across the lifecycle of nuclear energy.

As a Senior EC&I Designer you’ll bring your significant experience to provide design solutions for Reactor Protection Systems. This will include the production of a range of documentation including circuit data capture, design schemes and proposal drawings, detail and fabrication drawings, general assemblies and bills of materials.
You’ll provide support at design reviews and risk assessments, and ensure that everything is delivered to programme, budget and quality standards. You’ll also apply your knowledge of environmental health and safety legislation and directives during the process and provide verification and review support to junior members of the team.
As well as working on some of the most high-profile nuclear projects in the UK and overseas we also offer a supportive work environment that places innovation at the heart of what we do.

• Fabrication techniques to support electrical design
• Achievable manufacturing accuracy
• Geometric tolerancing

Lastly you’ll have working knowledge of the application of environmental health and safety legislation and directives during the design process plus experience of providing verification and review support.


What else do I need to know?

• The base location for this role will be Radar Road, Leicester
