The Role:
Do you have offshore structural analysis experience of drilling risers and conductors using software such as FLEXCOM? Are you looking for the career opportunity to progress to Principal Engineer level? If so this could be the role for you!

The Role
Joining our Oil & Gas Engineering & Consulting business in Aberdeen, you will have the opportunity to work on all aspects of drilling structures including riser analysis, subsea conductor and platform conductor analysis for clients in the North Sea and worldwide.
As well as supporting exploration drilling activities and conductor design, you will also provide day to day operational support to our client's fixed assets, many of which are operating in life extension with well components, such as conductors, connectors, guides and guide frames, suffering degradation and wear. Developing innovative repair solutions is therefore a key part of this role. As part of the structural team, you may also contribute to or lead other aspects of structural integrity management including jacket and topsides analysis, inspection review and brownfield design.

In addition to building relationships with our clients, you will be able to work with other teams to develop cross-discipline capabilities, and have a co-operative and helpful attitude to colleagues and clients.
You will have the potential and desire to progress to Principal Engineer status and beyond.
In addition to having the ability to cope with rapidly challenging problems and bringing a flexible approach to adapt to individual situations, other key requirements include:
* Offshore structural analysis experience of drilling risers and conductors using software such as FLEXCOM (preferred) or ORCAFLEX.
