Graduate Engineering Analyst
We are an award-winning subsea engineering consultancy and opened our first office in 2015, with a focus on finite-element analysis for the offshore wind and oil & gas sectors.
We currently have eight permanent members of engineering staff and are looking to steadily grow numbers with high-calibre recruits over the next year.
AgileTek provides engineering services to a wide range of clients in the offshore renewable energy and oil & gas sectors.
We aim to foster a unique culture for an engineering consultancy, this means we do not do things like: tell you what to wear to work, force you to commute into London at rush hour, have lots of long meetings, or use email for internal communication like it's still 2005.
It’s important to us to invest in the latest information technology, provide training and mentoring, and promote and value good ideas and hard work.
Graduate Engineer Analysts start by learning to use the FEA packages we use at AgileTek, primarily OrcaFlex and ABAQUS.
By its nature, most training in a small consultancy has to be "on the job" so if you're looking for a heavily structured 12 month graduate scheme, this isn't the role for you. We have a six-week programme that will provide you with the core knowledge required to be a subsea engineering consultant. After this, you will be expected to assist on project work and in-house development tasks.
Project work varies but examples include:
* build a finite-element model to simulate a 100 year storm event and verify the performance of a cable protection system
* specify a test procedure to validate analytical models
* research a new technology and write a report advising on the opportunities and risks
* write some python code to automatically calculate fatigue life of a subsea umbilical
After one year as a Graduate Engineering Analyst you will advance to the role of Engineering Analyst and will take on more responsibility for project work. From there, you will have the opportunity to work up through the Senior and Lead Engineer levels as your knowledge and skills develop, right up to a Director level role where you will have technical authority and responsibility over a team of engineers.
We require you to have:
* a degree in a subject that is either on or similar to one on our approved list below from a good university
* a willingness to work in Central London
* fluent English language
* the right to live and work in the UK (sorry we are unable to sponsor Non-EEA)
It will help if you have experience of one or more of the following:
* Ship design
* Scripting (Python/MATLAB or similar)
* Software development (C++/Java)
* A structural FEA solver (e.g. Abaqus/ANSYS)
* A CFD package (e.g. Fluent/Star-CD)
* A multi-physics package (e.g. Comsol)
* Finite-element theory
* Polymer engineering
The role will require some travel, typically for one or two days mainly within the UK and Europe.
Please send us a CV and a covering letter stating why you are well suited to this role. You can upload these using the form on our website.
Shortlisted applicants will be invited to one of our assessment days in London to complete a series of exercises and an interview. We can be flexible on start-dates for the right candidate.
