Job Description

Our Asset Performance business line comprises specialists from across the entire range of disciplines needed to address a full spectrum of engineering asset management issues. Our services span the full lifecycle of ownership and blend enterprise-level consultancy, solving real-world business critical problems, with unmatched engineering analytical pedigree.

As part of our exciting growth plans, we are looking for an experienced Reliability Centred Maintenance (RCM) Facilitator to join the team in developing the company’s RCM capability and promoting BMT as the supplier of choice for RCM and related services.

As RCM Facilitator you will be a significant member of the RCM team and your responsibilities will include:

  • As an RCM Subject Matter Expert (SME), managing the delivery of RCM programmes and related projects to schedule and budget, whilst meeting client and corporate expectations

  • Providing RCM advice and consultancy as required or requested, as well as technical input into Case Studies

The role will be based out of a BMT office location (Bath, Fareham, Plymouth or Weymouth), however, we are happy to explore flexible and remote working options too. Some travel to client sites and for meetings will be required and, at present, these are predominantly in the Bristol area.

What are we looking for?

We are looking for an enthusiastic and flexible RCM subject matter expert, with a demostrable and successful track record in the application of RCM. In particular, you will have a detailed knowledge of Def Stan 00-45 and BR1313A, as well as a good understanding of other international RCM standards/ the application of RCM in other industry standards.

Additionally, we look forward to learning more about your:

  • Ability and confidence to lead a team or act independently with support from colleagues
  • Professional communication skills and ability to present information clearly

  • Degree, or equivalent experience, in an engineering discipline
  • Willingness to travel, when safe to do so, both in the UK and overseas
