NES Global Talent is urgently looking for a CSA Discipline Engineer to start as soon as possible in Rotterdam.

Role description

Under the leadership and direction of the Engineering Manager, the role of the CSA Discipline Engineer is to deliver technical excellence by overseeing the activities of the engineering contractor(s), primarily through the review of engineering deliverables and design documentation as specified in the project’s Engineering Management Plan (EMP). The CSA Discipline Engineer is the first point of contact for the contractors’ engineers to resolve questions related to the project’s design philosophies and technical standards. In the engineering and design phases of the project, they verify that the contractors are following the technical direction set by the Engineering Manager.

During the field execution they provide support to the construction, commissioning and start?up teams by responding to questions related to the design and verifying that the design intent is maintained until handover to operations.

The CSA Discipline Engineer will be based at one of the largest refinery in Europe based in Rotterdam in the early Select Stage of the project and then move to the engineering and procurement (EP) office(s) after the Configuration Selection Review and through Define and detailed engineering of Execute. The CSA Discipline Engineer will then return to the refinery when all vendor equipment and bulk material orders have progressed to the point that the EP office(s) can be closed with the exception of a small back?office team supporting an active field engineering presence at the project site.
