Requirements

What youll be doing at Frazer-Nash?

Frazer-Nash offers excellent opportunities for engineering / science graduates and post-graduates to experience challenging and interesting work that will make a real difference in the world. Whilst this role is primarily maritime focussed, you will have the chance to use your skills and talents working across a diverse range of multi-disciplinary projects and industries, helping us deliver a safe and secure world against a backdrop of rapidly evolving technology, where natural resources are conserved, and clean energy is available to all.

Below are just a few recent examples of projects that our Maritime teams have been working on, to give you a flavour of the type of work you will have the opportunity to get involved in:

  • Helping the Ministry of Defence understand the safety implications of operating submarines in the extreme weather conditions in arctic waters;
  • Providing Safety Management expertise to Babcock in support of the Royal Navys Type 31 programme;
  • Embedding a Naval Architect in a MoD project team to help develop the early concept design for a future attack submarine;
  • Provision of Quality Management advice to a commercial shipping company to support their development of a prototype shaft line design for a foreign Navy.

Working within a consultancy environment offers a unique opportunity to quickly assimilate a breadth and depth of experience that you just wont find elsewhere. Youll be able to develop your technical knowledge at each step of the CADMID lifecycle, from finding the missing piece of the design puzzle, to helping manage vessel build and delivery, solving real-time in-service issues, and helping our clients overcome ever more complex material degradation and ageing issues as vessels near the end of their design life.

At Frazer-Nash we think it is important that you gain exposure to the full project lifecycle and all aspects of our business. To this effect, as part of helping you develop your technical and consultancy skills, you will be given the opportunity to develop proposals, bid for work, produce technical work as part of a project team and develop Project Management skills. We will also help you to expand your network and establish strong working relationships by giving you the opportunity to collaborate with people from across our organisation, as well as liaising directly with our clients.

What youll need?

Our Maritime teams are interested in hearing from ambitious, dynamic, high calibre graduate engineers / scientists who share our vision and want to kick start their career in the maritime sector. You should have a genuine enthusiasm for engineering, in particular the maritime sector, and be able to demonstrate an aptitude for problem solving and a willingness to take on new challenges.

We are seeking ambitious high calibre graduate and post-graduate engineers to join one of our Maritime focussed teams where we have a wide range of current and future exciting opportunities on offer for you to explore.
