14 Dock Readiness Project 

There is a requirement to modify a number of SRC and 14 Dock services and structures in order to provide a sustainable Swiftsure Class (S-Class) and Trafalgar Class (T-Class) submarine De-fuelling capability in Devonport Dockyard. 

The purpose of this Programme is to provide a flexible organisation to coordinate, direct and oversee all of the projects and activities necessary to safely deliver the above outcome to time cost and quality. 

14 Dock, within the SRC, has been identified as the designated dock for the ‘out of service’ Swiftsure Class (S-Class) and Trafalgar Class (T-Class) submarines. This designation of 14 Dock as the single Laid Up Submarines (LUSM) docking facility will provide a key enabler to the Authority’s overall strategy for the dismantling of ‘out of service’ Nuclear submarines. 

A programme of assessments and physical works has been ongoing to maintain and improve the performance of the various systems and structures within the Facility under normal and extreme scenarios. However, this will not provide the necessary capability; consequently, Babcock is mobilising a team to undertake the necessary work. 

The Key objective of this Programme is to: 
• Safely deliver a reliable and sustainable PWR1 de-fuelling capability in 14 Dock 

The primary purpose of the Project / Senior Engineer is to assist the project / package manager in the delivery of project scope. This will include the likes of the following; 

• Support to planning and scheduling of project activities. 
• Management and delivery of distinct controllable tasks / activities. 
• Development of control of work information. 
• Production of Risk Assessments / Method Statements and ensuring that all tasks are undertaken in a safe and appropriate manner. 
• Management / liaison with sub-contracts in support of delivery of contracted works.

Demonstrable experience and knowledge of engineering works, e.g. civil works, mechanical or electrical systems / services. 
A minimum of 2 years’ experience working in a project environment. 
Have effective writing and presentation skills.
