Job description

nucleargraduates is a ground-breaking graduate programme created by the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) and sponsored by organisations across the nuclear industry including Rolls-Royce, the Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR) and Sellafield Ltd amongst others.

The two-year programme consists of three secondments, two with your sponsoring organisation and a third secondment chosen by you. You can expect to find yourself working with Government, on-site, with the private sector supply chain and regulatory authorities. There is also the possibility of undertaking an international secondment; to date our graduates have completed secondments with over 100 different organisations and bodies across the nuclear industry, both at home and abroad. 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.

Your programme will be broken down into technical and behavioural training structured against the needs of the ICE with whom you will be working with 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 on 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 engineers and scientists. You will establish a start-up company, developing your commercial awareness and growing your appreciation of the challenges faced by a small business. You will work with local community projects, meeting inspirational individuals.

Applicants must be willing and able to move around the UK and overseas to complete secondments and training whilst on the nucleargraduates programme. Extensive travelling is required with relocation across the UK essential in order to complete secondments.

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