Company: Lloyds Register

Job ID:34480
Location:Can be remote based, so global location could be considered
Position Category:Technical
Position Type:Employee Regular



The maritime industry is seeing increasing use of hybrid electrical power systems to decarbonise propulsion as a part of the energy transition. These increasingly complex and software reliant systems require different assurance approaches than conventional designs. LR wishes to support the Maritime Industry to adopt new technology while ensuring that safety, sustainability and security of the asset is maintained. This role is for a person to lead and drive the introduction of systems engineering approaches including modelling and simulation for the Maritime Industry throughout LR’s Rules and assurance products.


Lloyd's Register is a leading international provider of classification, compliance & consultancy services to the Ocean Economy, helping our customers design, construct & operate their assets to the highest levels of safety & performance. We are shaping the industry’s future through support to the development of novel & innovative technology for the next generation of assets, while continuing to deliver solutions for our customers every day.


The Role


A vacancy exists in our Technical Policy Team for a Principal Specialist with deep knowledge of functional safety and systems engineering. Whilst the team is based in the Southampton Global Technology Centre, UK, the successful candidate could report to the team remotely and be based in another location. The principal responsibility is to ensure that LR develops marine Rules, procedures and guidance that are suitable for the new generation of complex systems through the proper application of systems engineering approaches appropriate for the marine industry. Our Rules must be clear, logical, comprehensive and concise, and readily understood by internal and external clients.


The successful applicant would have significant input into the development of systems engineering approaches into Rules, making effective use of technology and tools such as Model Based Systems Engineering for the development of future class and certification, and the provision of training to our technical specialists. This role is within the Electrotechnical Section of the Technical Policy Group and offers an ideal opportunity for a systems specialist to support the Maritime Industry's energy transition.


Candidates need not have significant marine experience but will need to be capable of understanding the domain and making technical decisions at a high level on how techniques will translate from other industrial contexts. They must be capable of operating unsupervised.


The role is within a team of subject matter experts who are responsible for Global governance of Technical Policy.


This particular role will work closely with the Head of Electrotechnical Systems and will have specific responsibilities for the development of systems engineering approaches within Lloyd’s Register, providing direction and guidance.   


What do we ask from you?

Qualified Professional Engineer with significant functional safety and systems engineering experience in a position of responsibility.

Knowledge and experience of Model Based Systems Engineering approaches is desirable.

Strong technically, with excellent communication skills and a willingness to offer solutions to problems effecting all areas of the Marine and Offshore business. Capable of making technical decisions at a high level, and operating unsupervised.
