Job Description

Our very busy award-winning EMC team is looking for an EMC Engineer to support the delivery of a varied and exciting project portfolio.

This is a great opportunity for a young Engineer looking to join a well established EMC team and this way further expand on his career and EMC technical knowledge.

You will be supporting the delivery of EMC consultancy services to major rail clients such as Network Rail, HS2, Alstom, Siemens, Volker Rail, Transport for London, etc.

as well as clients in other sectors (defence, energy, built environment) and help ensuring the projects are compliant with applicable Electromagnetic Compatibility regulations and standards.

This involves working closely with the client from concept and design right through to delivery, documenting and demonstrating EMC, calculating and modelling electromagnetic interference and also getting involved with required EMC testing activities.

The role requires regular interaction with the clients and project stakeholders.

Your role will be primarily technical, helping the Principal EMC Engineer to deliver to the right quality and timescales.

You will be involved in EMC assurance on railways, as well as non-railway related projects (e.g. transmission and generation) and be responsible for and / or support the preparation of EMC related assurance documents such as EMC Strategies and Control Plans.

You will also take part in EMC HAZID workshops, preparing and managing EMC hazard records, be involved in modelling work (e.

g. induced voltage studies, calculate magnetic fields, etc.) using our software tools and produce standalone EMC assessments to check the client requirements are met.

You will also get involved in EMC site test measurements and other on-site activities (e.g. surveys).
