Are you a Project Engineer who has expertise integrating technical requirements across a complex programme?

About us
In 2025 the National Railway Museum (NRM) celebrates 50 years of being open to the public and this coincides with the 200th anniversary of the Stockton and Darlington Railway. To commemorate these momentous occasions the Vision 2025 Masterplan seeks to deliver a programme of upgrades to both the NRM in York and sister museum, Locomotion, at Shildon.

Our programme is made up of a series of projects with an overall budget of £60.7 million and is known as the Vision 2025 Masterplan. This coincides with the transformation of the underused land around the museum in York by the York Central Partnership, aiming to power York’s economy into the future.

The Masterplan strategy marks a step change in our aspiration to engage with the best design practices and create life enhancing experiences through beautiful, appropriate and well-crafted design.

About the role
As Project Engineer for the Vision 2025 Masterplan, you will be part of a highly successful team that over the past decade has delivered transformational projects across the Science Museum Group. You will ensure that new and existing systems of the programme are married together, and operational requirements clearly articulated, designed and delivered.

Supporting the Vision 2025 delivery alongside ongoing major capital renewal and maintenance activity, you will work across both the NRM and Locomotion sites to define and map technical requirements before tracking their progress throughout the lifespan of the programme.

As Technical lead, you will collaborate and communicate with Estates and Museum Operations to successfully deliver these transformative works in live museum environments.

About you
You have experience at professional engineer level in buildings projects, and have managed engineering aspects across multiple disciplines on projects that form an integrated programme.

Naturally leading with a health and safety focus, you can work on projects delivered in an environment that remains operational and accessible to the public and that has live construction sites managed by others adjacent.

With great interpersonal, spoken and written communication skills, you have strong stakeholder management skills, with the ability to effectively work across a wide range of colleagues and professionals.
