The Advanced Planning Team is a small and dedicated team working within the SSE Organisation, based at the Bristol Technology Centre, Filton, Bristol.
We are responsible for identifying the work package, from a variety of data sources including the Through Life Boat Plan and the Submarine Definition Database, for forthcoming submarine maintenance periods and completing an Indicative Planning Schedule (IPS) for each maintenance period.
Under the guidance of the Advanced Planning Senior Engineer, you, as the Advanced Planning Engineer, will identify the work required for the forthcoming submarine maintenance period. Using your engineering knowledge and experience, you will then resolve any ambiguities within these activities whilst ensuring that all work requirements are clearly defined and achievable.
This will require regular liaison with a variety of stakeholders to ensure accuracy and achievement of the required quality to satisfy our exacting customer. Finally, you will complete an Indicative Planning Schedule (Key Date Schedule) for this work.
And as you’re supporting our business we’ll be supporting you. So as well as offering competitive benefits – you will be given the appropriate training to fulfil your role. Babcock provide support to a range of marine projects so you will have the opportunity to grow and expand your skillset within the engineering industry.
What do I need to do the role?
As the Advanced Planning, you will have an engineering qualification eg degree or HNC/HND or demonstrable relevant experience, at least 5 years’ experience in engineering delivery and a good knowledge of submarine or surface ship operations and maintenance activities.
Ideally, you will have experience in managing and running submarine maintenance activities and have previously qualified as a submarine Marine Engineering Department Category B or Category A watchkeeper.
You will be a sole UK National.
