Job Title:Signalling Design Verifier 

Start Date:ASAP

Contract Duration:6 Months 



Defined responsibilities and requirements for level crossing competent signalling design engineers. This is required tosupport the development of logic-based level crossings, including MCB, MCB-CCTV, MCB-OD2, AHB, MSL, AOCL.

Outline Responsibilities

  • Support the Alstom Engineering Manager to deliver a programme of works to defined budget and timescales.

  • Production/verification of level crossing compliance reports and gap analysis.

  • Production/verification of interface descriptions based on the level crossing sub-system architecture.

  • Participate in HAZID meetings and identify relevant level crossing system and operational hazards.

  • Support interfacing sub-system designers with level crossing input/output requirements.

  • Production/verification of level crossing wiring and level crossing PLC application logic equations for MCB, MCB-CCTV, MCB-OD2, AHB, MSL, and AOCL type crossings.

  • Support RAM engineers with system reliability, availability, and maintenance analysis specific to the level crossing sub-system.

  • Input in to design and engineering logs, risk register, non-compliance register, Hazard log, and design assumptions.

  • Support evidence gathering to satisfy level crossing sub-system requirements.

  • Support safety assurance engineers with any acceptance and approvals, safety case evidence, and hazard close out specific to the level crossing sub-system.

  • Support testing activities by providing design guidance.

Role Requirements/Competencies


  • Knowledge of and have applied Network Rail level crossing standards and typical circuits

  • Knowledge of the regulation and guidance overseen by the ORR (Office of Rail & Road)

  • Knowledge of and have applied Level crossing principles for MCB-CCTV, MCB-OD, AHB, MSL, and AOCL UK level crossing types

  • Knowledge of and have applied CDM (Construction, Design and Management Regulations)

  • Knowledge of and have applied CSM (Common Safety Method)

  • Knowledge of level crossing systems, technology, lineside and control center equipment

  • Knowledge of system safety considerations including system reaction times and interfaces

  • Knowledge of level crossing operational risks that are required to be mitigated for the various level crossing types and how these are captured within the design

  • 1.145 IRSE Engineering Managers Licence or 1.1.550 IRSE Principles Design Licence

  • Knowledge of engineering interface with other disciplines (Civils, Electrification and Telecommunications)
