Rise to extraordinary challenges.

AWE plays a crucial role in national nuclear security. Working to support UK defence we’re a community of creative thinkers from all kinds of backgrounds in all kinds of roles, with one clear mission - to keep everyone and everything around us safe and secure. To keep life going on as normal. We call it world unchanging work. And it’s vitally important work that we’re proud to do.

Our Graduate Development Scheme works around you and your role. Joining us in a permanent job, you’ll work on live projects to help you grow your technical and non-technical skills. You’ll learn from some of the most experienced people in their specialist fields, in some of the most advanced research and technology facilities. And, with a tailored development programme and dedicated mentor, you’ll have everything you need to make the most of your personal and professional development.

Our two-year programme gives you everything you need to progress your career with the nation’s largest high-tech research, development and production facility. Working on a live project, you’ll have access to a network of AWE professionals who’ll share their expertise with you. With regular reviews, your line manager will guide you through a tailored training and development programme. And you’ll be supported to achieve professional registration. Our scheme is accredited by eight professional institutions - IoP, IMechE, IChemE, RSC, IOM3, CIBSE, IET and IMA.

You can also look forward to a competitive basic salary, plus a £2,500 welcome payment, and a range of benefits including generous annual leave, a £1,000 interest free loan, and defined pension contribution.
