Could you play a key role in changing a complex, technically demanding business to establish, evolve and improve its approach to asset management? Can you connect people and technical disciplines to achieve success? Are you excited by working as part of a diverse team?
The United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA) is a global leader in developing the technology and skills to deliver fusion. This is achieved by innovative research and development approaches, delivering at the cutting-edge of science and engineering. Our success has led to significant and ongoing organisational growth, demanding consistent high performance and reliability of our assets.
This is a new role within a new team for UKAEA. The Asset Reporting & Systems Manager will be responsible for defining and delivering against the asset information objectives outlined within our strategic asset management (SAMP) plan, including an emphasis on efficient and effective specification of asset data and developing, embedding, delivering and continuously improving the supporting tools and processes.
Key Accountabilities and Responsibilities
- Lead the effective application of the asset management data standards. Includes ensuring that standards are adhered to (e.g. pursuing and checking critical asset information from across UKAEA, periodic information audits, exercising super user status)
- Maintain and continuously improve relevant asset management software related business processes, data standards and supporting guidance
- Assist with the definition, selection, implementation, application and ongoing improvement of appropriate asset management software tools (e.g. creation of a system architecture that provides effective linkage with other systems, periodic recommendations for improvements, co-ordinate and leverage end-user technical testing for system changes)
- Act as business subject matter expert and super user of UKAEA`s asset management software tools (e.g. generate asset management KPI reports and dashboards for decision making, co-ordinate loading of bulk maintenance data, interrogate and troubleshoot user issues)
- Define, develop, manage and deliver training related to asset management software and asset management data standards
- Provide ongoing coaching to drive the creation, collation and use of effective asset information throughout the business (e.g. asset managers, planners, maintainers etc.)
Ideally, you will strengthen and complement our existing team with experience that includes:
- Developing and embedding new ways of working within an organisation (people, process, tools)
- Delivering asset management in an operationally demanding business with complex plants
- Implementing an EAM (Enterprise Asset Management), CMMS (Computerised Maintenance Management System) or FM (Facilities Management) system
- The interrogation and direction of databases (e.g. SQL)
- Understanding and driving the resolution of technical issues – both related to maintenance and information systems
- Delivering asset management within an operationally demanding, high complexity environment (e.g. health service, nuclear, petrochemical, utilities etc)
Your education should include a relevant qualification in a technical discipline (or equivalent experience) such as an HNC, HND, C&G or NVQ Level 3.
Nuclear fusion, the process that powers the Sun, could play a huge part in our carbon-free energy future. The UK Atomic Energy Authority is placing the UK at the forefront of realising energy from fusion by working with industry to deliver the ground-breaking developments that will underpin tomorrow`s power stations.
In a period of growth after the award of substantial funds from government, we are:
- Operating two world-class plasma science devices (JET, MAST-U)
- Building a portfolio of diverse technology development facilities in support of the fusion fuel cycle (AGHS, H3AT), state-of-the-art robotic maintenance (RACE) together with pushing the bounds of materials and manufacturing technology (MRF, FTF)
- Designing power plants partnered with third parties in the UK (STEP) and Europe (DEMO)
Working at UKAEA
At UKAEA, we strive to make everyone feel welcome and fully supported. We`re always interested in versatile applicants from diverse backgrounds and we actively promote equality among our staff. Over half of our `Office of the Chief Engineer` team work flexible, compressed or part-time hours – we`d be happy for you to do likewise if that`s important to you.
We also understand the special nature of our work, so on-the-job training over many months is normal on entering UKAEA. After orienting yourself in the business and your role, diligent line managers, a graded career structure and our mentoring scheme will enable you to reach your true potential. Even if you feel your background matches only some rather than all of the profile, we`d still be keen to hear from you.
Please note, all employees working at the UK Atomic Energy Authority will be required to complete an online Disclosure Certificate application as part of their clearance – The Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) checks will show the details of all current criminal convictions (convictions considered unspent under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974) or will confirm that there are no such convictions.
We`re planning on an initial remote interview if you are shortlisted.
An on-site interview may follow, including a chance to tour some relevant plant. This will help you understand a little more about our organisation, site and the work that we do.
