Engineer your positive impact

Tractebel is a global community of 5000 imaginative experts engineering a carbon-neutral future. Through our game-changing solutions for complex energy, urban, nuclear and water projects, we help our clients create a positive impact towards a sustainable world, where people, planet and profit collectively thrive.


Working environment
The ‘Radioactivity Management’ Competence Centre, which is part of the D&D Department, is responsible for all Engineering aspects in the field of:
  • Radiation Protection;
  • Radiation Monitoring;
  • Radiological Characterization;
  • Radioactive Waste Management (both waste from operational and from dismantling activities);
  • Decommissioning Concepts (Dismantling Tools & Techniques, Conceptual Design Studies, …).
The Team “Radioactive Waste Solutions” is in charge of Engineering Studies related to the management of radioactive waste coming from exploitation activities as well as from dismantling activities for all of our (inter)national clients. The team interacts with the other teams of the Competence Centre (CC), with the other CC’s and with the other Products of the Business Entity Belgium Nuclear. Its members work in close relationship with the final Client and interact with the Safety Authorities and with Radioactive Waste Management Agencies.

Because of the strong increase of the business activity, we are looking for motivated Engineers to contribute in our day-to-day challenges as well as in our long-term objectives.



As ‘Design Engineer Radioactive Waste Solutions’, you are responsible for the sound roll-out of all the projects, tasks and responsibilities entrusted to you. In close collaboration with your colleagues and your team lead, you contribute to the preparation of bids, the Engineering Studies and the projects in the field of Radioactive Waste Management.

Your responsibilities are:
  • conducting Engineering studies related to the ‘treatment and conditioning systems’ of solid radioactive waste and liquid and gaseous effluents;
  • establishing equipment lay-outs in collaboration with designers and draftsmen;
  • using computer codes developed for evaluating decommissioning costs;
  • developing sensitivity studies with those computer codes, especially regarding radioactive waste management techniques and strategies implemented and their impact on the decommissioning planning and costs;
  • writing technical specifications and follow-up contractors during the site commissioning phase;
  • maintaining the knowledge, required expertise and methodologies required to accomplish your missions;
  • delivering ‘quality on time’: in order to achieve this objective, you will get all support required in terms of technical training, coaching and availability of (IT) resources;
  • verifying work performed by your colleagues;
  • correctly applying the Integrated Management System (IMS) procedures;
  • providing regular feedback concerning ongoing activities to your team lead and your hierarchy, while working autonomously towards the goals defined for you;
  • identifying and implementing possible synergies with other teams and/or Competence Centres;
  • contributing to the preparation of technical bids at an international level;
  • providing (internal) presentations and trainings;
  • participating actively to regular meetings with your colleagues during which workload, technical issues, project follow-up, development strategy and transversal activity coordination are discussed.
You will collaborate actively with your colleagues from Project Management and Competence Centre departments, and build a close relationship while working for the same goal, actively developing cross department projects for your clients.

You embody the image and values of Tractebel and the ENGIE group (Ethics, QHSE,…) in all your contacts, both inside and outside the ENGIE group, and other external stakeholders.
