Job description

nucleargraduates is a ground-breaking graduate programme created by the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority and sponsored by organisations across the nuclear industry including Sellafield Ltd, Rolls-Royce, Magnox Ltd and the Environment Agency amongst others. The scheme is also involved with more than 20 other companies and organisations across the industry.

Rolls-Royce submarines are looking for chemical engineers to sponsor on the nucleargraduates programme. This is an exciting opportunity with a pioneering organisation responsible for the design and development of the nuclear propulsion systems for the Royal Navy’s submarine fleet.

This two-year programme consists of three secondments chosen by you. You can expect to find yourself working on-site, with the private sector supply chain and regulatory authorities. A dedicated mentor, assigned to you upon starting the programme, will help you plan a two-year programme unique to you and your development goals.

Young engineers and scientists play a crucial role in our industry. You will have the chance to make a real difference. You will get a wealth of technical experience and the opportunity to try out more commercial opportunities.

This is a unique opportunity to experience the different aspects of our complex, ever-changing industry before starting employment with Rolls-Royce to continue your career and professional development.

nucleargraduates is accredited and supported by the Institute of Chemical Engineers (IChemE). Your programme will be broken down into technical and behavioural training. It will be structured against the needs of the IChemE with whom you’re aiming to gain chartered engineer status. You will come together with your fellow graduates to complete ‘core’ training as well as having the benefit of an individual training budget for training specific to your personal development.

On top of this you will spend 10% of your time with us to Footprints, our corporate social responsibility programme. You will have the opportunity to become a STEM ambassador, passing on your knowledge and enthusiasm to the next generation of scientists and engineers. You will establish a start-up company, developing your commercial awareness and allowing your appreciation of the challenges faced by a small business. You will work with local community projects, meeting inspirational individuals.

Company information

Candidates will be subject to the Office of Civil Nuclear Security (OCNS) clearance checks.

Person requirements

nucleargraduates are looking for individuals keen to learn and able to influence others through their attitude and actions. Mobility, adaptability and tenacity are crucial for this role. Most importantly we are looking for graduates who can achieve real results whilst showing humility as an individual and in a team environment. Applicants must be driven, able to manage their own time and take full advantage of the opportunities presented to them by the scheme.

This is a programme that will change your life. A commitment to working and living in different locations and communities is a state of mind not just a requirement here. Think! Are you prepared to experience work and life in diverse communities from the tip of Scotland to the foot of Devon, from industrial centres to the “corridors of power” in London? This is a programme that sends you on secondments all around the country, and possibly the world. It will allow you to understand all aspects of the nuclear industry - technical, political and commercial - giving you the 'big picture'.

Qualifications and experience requirements

Candidates must have, or expect a result of 2:1 or above at masters level in chemical engineering.
