The UK’s nuclear industry is facing its biggest challenge in decades. Existing power stations are ready to be decommissioned, a new wave of plants has been given the go ahead and the next generation of submarines is being tested. Nuclear is back on the agenda. The need for suitably skilled graduates from the UK is greater and more urgent than ever.

Engineers, scientists, business minds, talented managers and financial experts will all be essential to the future of this sector. That’s why leading businesses and organisations have come together to create the most comprehensive scheme the industry has ever seen.

This two year programme consists of three secondments; you can expect to find yourself working with Government, on-site, in the private sector supply chain and regulatory authorities. Graduates will also have an excellent possibility of going on an international secondment. Extensive training is provided through the two year scheme to allow you to expand on your industry awareness and provide you with the behavioural skills required to progress within your career.

As a nucleargraduate you will be crucial within the industry. You’ll have the chance to make progress with on-site decommissioning work at Sellafield, shape industrial strategy with the NDA or work on the design of new commercial reactors with Rolls-Royce. Needless to say you’ll get a wealth of technical experience and the opportunity to try out more commercial activities.

Upon completion of the two year programme you will start employment with your chosen sponsoring organisation to continue your career and professional development.

It’s fully backed with professional support to move you towards professional qualifications with bodies such as the IMECHE, ICE, CIPD, CIM and IET via a structured programme supported by mentors and training.

On top of that you spent 10% of your time dedicated to the footprints programme - you will work with local schools, groups and businesses to give something back to the communities in which you’re based.

nucleargraduates are keen learners who can influence people through their attitude and actions. Mobility, adaptability and tenacity are critical for our roles. We look for people who are actively seeking adventure and the challenge of moving into roles from the foot of Devon to the tip of Scotland via villages and cities in between.

Most importantly we are looking for people who can achieve real results while showing humility as an individual and in a team environment.
