Recruiter: Network Rail
Type: Permanent
Location: York - UK

IP Scotland and North East (IP SNE) is responsible for the delivery of multi-million pound capacity and electrification schemes throughout Scotland and the North East of England. The team manages schemes from early development stages through to implementation and commissioning works. The projects are major multi-discipline in nature, with remodelling of track and S&C, re-signalling and re-control, telecommunications, significant civil and structural works, new Overhead electrification systems, as well as plant, HV distribution, SCADA works etc.

We are looking to appoint a Project Engineer (Signalling) to support the development and delivery of a number significant multi-disciplinary projects. You will be part of a highly experienced and motivated team, tasked with delivering some of the most complex and challenging projects in the UK.

You’ll be at the heart of our success, managing the use of engineering standards for design and construction across every project within the national programme. You’ll enjoy an impact on everything from quality and cost to safety and compliance. And it’s not just about design and construction – your remit will also encompass commissioning, testing, site supervision and control. Implementing and monitoring systems, techniques and procedures including engineering controls, risk assessment and HAZOP analysis will be just the beginning. You’ll assure the competence of contractors, and provide specialist advice and guidance to them and to project and programme management.

The successful candidate will be working primarily within the Enhancements programme, but could be required to work within other regional programmes or projects as required.

We are specifically looking for an engineer that could step into a Designated Project Engineer for a GRIP 5 project that interfaces the running of Trams and Trains and ideally has experience in this or a similar role.
