APPLICATION CLOSING DATE: 10 DEC 2018
Here at Fluor Limited we are now commencing our 2019 Graduate recruitment process and are currently seeking Graduate Process Engineers to join our Headquarters in Farnborough, Hampshire.
If you have a minimum 2:1 MEng/MSc Degree or equivalent in Chemical Engineering, then this could be an excellent opportunity to apply your degree in the Process Technology Department of Fluor Ltd, the UK operating arm of Fluor Corporation, one of the world's largest engineering, procurement, construction and project management services companies.
The Process Department
The primary function of process plant contractors, such as Fluor, is to conceptualise, design and construct process plant facilities. Therefore, process engineering is the heart of our business. Process engineers must have a broad knowledge of both the technical and commercial aspects of our business, and also understand our Clients’ business drivers to ensure we deliver an optimal design.
Process engineering responsibilities fall into five general categories:
• Support to project proposals and business development
• Development of process designs
• Support of detailed engineering design
• Support to work in construction including plant commissioning
• Management and organization of all project activities
During the early part of your graduate career you will mainly be involved with development of process designs and supporting detailed engineering. The main activities in these two areas are:
• Development of the overall facility configuration
• Developing the design basis and design criteria for individual units that make up the facility
• Developing the basic processing scheme for the individual units
• Developing a simulation of the processing scheme and optimising the unit design based on the various design cases
• Determining utility, catalyst and chemical consumptions
• Developing the process control scheme and philosophy
• Contributing to the development of the physical layout of the unit and facility
• Sizing and definition of equipment, piping and process control elements,
• Assessing and advising on the HSE aspect of the design, including electrical area classification
• Developing commissioning and shutdown procedures
• Assessing process suitability of equipment prior to purchase
• Performing a detailed review of the equipment layout and piping configuration, including hydraulic analysis.
The work during the 4 year training program is designed to meet the requirements of the Institution of Chemical Engineers in order to achieve corporate membership and Chartered Engineer status. This training programme is accredited by the Institution. The work will be primarily process design activities carried out in our office in Farnborough, but we do look for opportunities to have trainees travel to project sites or be based there for a period of time.
Fluor is dedicated to the development of their graduate engineers in their chosen profession to chartered status and provides excellent training and on the job opportunities. Throughout your career Fluor actively encourages both professional and personal development through a career development programme, in-house training, Fluor University, specialist development courses and mentoring.
