nucleargraduates is a ground-breaking graduate programme created by the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority and sponsored by many well-respected organisations across the nuclear industry including Sellafield Ltd, Rolls-Royce, Jacobs and the Office for Nuclear Regulation amongst others
The two-year programme consists of three secondments chosen by you with the guidance of your mentor. 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. 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 setting you on the road to chartership.
Procurement, contract management and supply chain development are some of the specialist areas within the commercial directorate. You can expect to find yourself specialising in one of these areas or supporting policy and / or strategy development across all areas depending on the priorities of the organisation.
Your nucleargraduates programme will be broken down into technical and behavioural training. It will be structured against the needs of the institute with whom you’re aiming to gain chartered 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.
This is a unique opportunity to experience the different aspects of our complex, ever-changing industry as you start your career.
