The Opportunity

Join EDF as a Human Factors Engineer and you’ll join one of the most exciting and challenging projects within EDF, as we continue to lead the rebirth of nuclear in the UK. 

The Technical Client Organisation (TCO) is EDF UK’s Technical Centre of Excellence for civil nuclear, and a platform for collaboration, driving a common approach and replication, where appropriate, across our fleet of advanced gas-cooled (AGR) and pressurised water reactors (PWR).

One of the fundamental capabilities required by the TCO is Human Factors (HF), and we are looking for experienced Human Factors professionals to join our diverse and inclusive team of enthusiastic specialists. 

As a Human Factors Engineer, you will enact the role of the Intelligent Customer (IC) for Human Factors, through maintaining Human Factors design integrity and support safety case development, giving you the opportunity to be involved in a wide variety of HF activities and to influence many different groups and industry-leading projects across the business including the design, construction and operation of Hinkley Point C (HPC) and Sizewell C (SZC).

This is an excellent role for a chartered Human Factors professional (or someone who can demonstrate equivalent experience) who is keen to apply their experience to a nuclear energy context.

The Role

As a Human Factors Engineer, your responsibilities will include, but are not limited to:

•    Reporting to the Human Factors Group Leader, as part of a group of Human Factors Engineers.
•    Providing high-quality, authoritative Human Factors advice and expertise across the business. 
•    Fulfilling the Intelligent Customer (IC) role on behalf of the EDF UK Licensees.
•    Developing technical strategies and leading major projects related to Human Factors, including consideration of legal, compliance and commercial requirements and the application of a governance, oversight, support and performance (GOSP) model.
•    Championing the Human Factors topic and the group across the business, including the development and delivery of technical training.
•    Supporting the development and verification of site-specific safety cases, including the provision of specialist HF contributions.
•    Applying human reliability methodologies to identify and assess operator actions; observing, understanding and helping to improve the activities that operators carry out within and outside the main control room.
•    Supporting design activities of Human Machine Interfaces (e.g. control room, panels, plant) throughout the development lifecycle (specification of requirements, design, manufacture, validation and commissioning).
•    Reviewing and providing advice on how to improve the usability of procedures.
•    Supporting the HF Group and EDF UK Licensees in the resolution of technical and regulatory issues.
•    Building and maintaining strong relationships with internal – Including EDF France – and external stakeholders in the supply chain and the relevant regulatory bodies.
•    Supporting the HF Group Leader in the management of strategy, risk, work planning, resource and budgets.

The Skills

Your background may include some of the following:

•    A good quality degree or post-graduate qualification in a subject relevant to Human Factors or able to demonstrate commensurate experience.
•    Relevant practitioner skills and extensive experience in Human Factors.
•    A professional accreditation (e.g. C.ErgHF or CPsychol) relevant to this role or can demonstrate commensurate experience.
•    Experience of planning and applying Human Factors Integration (HFI) and Human Factors processes, standards and techniques to engineering projects.
•    Experience in human reliability assessment and/or human-centred design and systems engineering.
•    Knowledge of international standards, Operating Experience (OPEX) and best practice pertaining to human factors and application within a nuclear or high-hazard and safety-focussed industrial context.
•    Knowledge of UK-specific legislative and regulatory requirements pertaining to Human Factors within a nuclear or high-hazard and safety-focussed industrial context.
•    Experience of managing a range of stakeholders and able to demonstrate a successful record of accomplishment in influencing and negotiating, particularly in technical and safety-related discussions.
•    An understanding of the ALARP principle and its application.
•    Experience working with relevant HF methodologies applied in the nuclear industry for human reliability assessment (e.g. HEART, THERP) is desirable.
•    Experience of developing, authoring and verifying HF safety cases within a nuclear or high-hazard and safety-focussed industrial context is desirable.
