2016

"They are as inclusive as it is possible to be. Diversity in STEM careers is a big issue and they want to address that."
Graduate, Leeds
"You get the help you need and they are flexible to ensure you get the right support that suits you personally."
Graduate, Somerset
"Good split between men and women on the scheme."
Graduate, Liverpool
"There is a fairly even gender balance within the graduates. However, there is a gender imbalance towards male employees in the industry in general. I don't know what the company's policies on child care, maternity leave etc are as I haven't had to make use of these."
Graduate, Drigg
"I have seen nothing to suggest that this is anything other than very good."
Entry level, Whitehaven
"There is a push for good gender representation, although this is still a work in progress."
Graduate, Various
"While the nuclear industry is trying to improve diversity, it's an industry that still suffers from a lack of it."
Graduate, Reading

2014

"The recruitment team will take on anyone who is able to do the job. This means both technically and socially able to work in the industry. I feel that race, religion, sexuality, age, sex, etc. are not factors which are taken into consideration through candidate selection."
Graduate, Glasgow
"There is a want to increase the number of female graduates onto the scheme. I personally think that there could be more ethnic diversity within the scheme."
Graduate, Workington
"There seem to be no issue with diversity here. There are foreign employees, LGBT employees and as many women as they can hire in my opinion."
Graduate, London
"There are females on the graduate scheme, though it is a male dominated industry. I feel that the selection process is one based on merit, and doesn't boil down to someone fulfilling an ethnic criteria."
Graduate, Warrington

2013

"Nucleargraduates are very keen to diversify the white, older male dominated nuclear industry."
Graduate, Derby
"Good mix of men and women, although nationality is largely UK."
Graduate, Warrington
"My company focuses on hiring a lot of women because of the lack of women in the nuclear industry. The problem with the nuclear industry is that it is difficult to accept international people as you have to go through a security clearance. In addition people who are sponsored by defence companies must have a British passport to work therefore 90% of the graduates are British."
Graduate, Seascale
"Very hard to tell as we are not a massive company. I have never experienced any discrimination."
Graduate, Derby
