Interesting opportunity on MyCareerHub:
JGA Fire Engineering are actively looking for fire engineers – final years and recent graduates – and targeting physics students. You should have a minimum 2.1 BSc + MSc OR on be on track for a minimum 2.1 MPhys.
“Considerable advances in the understanding of fire and smoke movement, and the effects of fire on buildings, has led to a fire engineering approach to building fire safety that has allowed more efficient design of highly complex buildings. A successful fire engineering approach requires the application of scientific principles to engineering problems.
JGA are looking for graduates who can apply their education and knowledge to developing solutions to those problems. As a Design Engineer you would be responsible for the fire engineering analysis of buildings including shopping centres, airport terminals and large office buildings. This would include modelling of fire growth, smoke movement, structural fire resistance and occupant behaviour, using software packages including Computational Fluid Dynamics, and the production of technical reports.
JGA are a specialist fire consultancy with offices in Edinburgh, Glasgow, London, Manchester, Dublin, Belfast and Galway. One of their current projects is the fire engineering for the St. James Centre redevelopment in Edinburgh, but they also undertake much smaller projects – so quite a range.
They encourage early responsibility in engineers and you will be given the opportunity to progress rapidly. Working with experienced engineers you would rapidly gain experience and knowledge. JGA actively encourage engineers to achieve chartered status and offer any help they can with the process.”
