Job details:
A dynamic and enthusiastic individual in the non-destructive evaluation/testing field is sought to join a high-performing team of multi-disciplinary structural engineers. The team includes subject matter experts in delivering critical testing and evaluation of complex maritime structures.

Candidates can be considered for part-time if preferable and this should be highlighted in their applications.

The role:

  • Acting as, or operating under, the overall technical lead being responsible for time, cost and quality of team and individual work
  • Producing timely and proactive engineering outputs through attending and contributing to meetings and other communication methods, both formal (written reports for example) and informal, as required
  • Definition and delivery of technical work plans, resources and tasks, working with the project manager on schedule, budget, risks, dependencies and constraints
  • Ensuring effective governance to demonstrate that the technical solution meets appropriate regulatory, legal, safety and engineering standards
  • Fully capturing and understanding customers’ requirements and providing innovative solutions to customers’ problems
  • Leading or contributing to bidding activities
  • Building and developing customer relationships to seek out new or follow-on opportunities.


  • Positive individuals are sought with demonstrable experience in one or more of the subject areas listed below. They will be based in the Dunfermline/ Edinburgh area.

Subject areas:

  • NDE – ultrasonic inspection in the disciplines of time-of-flight diffraction (TOFD) and phased array ultrasonic testing (PAUT)
  • NDE – also of benefit – wider experience of alternative techniques such as eddy current, tangential eddy current array (TECA), dye penetrant inspection, magnetic particle inspection, radiography, etc.
  • The ideal candidate will be competent to provide PAUT and TOFD inspections of maritime structures for submarine and surface ships. They will be certificated in these domains to PCN Level 2 or greater and be confident in the generation of work instructions for new inspections. An awareness of maritime structures would be a key benefit, as would any knowledge of welding and materials. Similarly, PCN qualification in eddy current testing would be of benefit.
  • PCN Level 2 or higher certifications in ultrasonic inspection, TOFD, PAUT or eddy current testing
  • Minimum of three years of relevant experience in an appropriate engineering role.
