Design Engineers at Sellafield Ltd face some of the most unique & challenging work in the industry, and our engineering capability enables us to accelerate high hazard reduction in a safe, environmentally responsible, cost effective and pragmatic manner.

Equipment Engineers are responsible for specific equipment which can range from sensitive Radiometrics right through to Pumps, Motors and Gas Turbines and includes significant civil infrastructure and building structures.
