With clients including NDA, Sellafield Ltd, British Energy, UKAEA, AWE and a wide range of international nuclear utilities, we’re expanding to keep up with the demands for our services in Power Station Support, Decommissioning and New Build. So this is your chance to become a part of the future of this developing business and grow your career in a rapidly changing industry.

Part of a strong multi-disciplinary team, you’ll enjoy a challenging and varied workload, from desktop studies and reviews through laboratory trials in our 6000m2 laboratory and engineering complex in Warrington to site work on power stations and decommissioning plant. You must be capable of working on test rigs ranging from bench top to plant size, and of responding quickly and professionally to changing priorities. You should also be prepared to visit customers’ sites in the UK and abroad.

We’re looking for experienced scientists and experimentalists with excellent communication and interpersonal skills. Nuclear experience would be an advantage but not essential for those bringing key skills and flexibility from other related industries such as Power and Process. But you must be a graduate or postgraduate in an appropriate discipline and have or be working towards Chartered status.
