Job description

Your proactive and entrepreneurial approach, combined with an instinct for growth and working knowledge of the nuclear industry or similar, will help you to support my client as a Nuclear Professional.


This is a fantastic opportunity to work for one of the leading specialists in nuclear science and engineering, who deliver high value consultancy services to a key civil nuclear client, working on projects that matter and which support the UK’s ambitions to achieve Net Zero by 2050.


About the role


The Nuclear Professional role lies within a group, who primarily work to solve complex problems related to the continued safe operation and longevity of existing nuclear assets and support the safe defueling and decommissioning of nuclear facilities. The group also supports clients across the wider nuclear industry including new build projects and small modular reactor design.


The role requires that you contribute to providing advice to the design, operation, defueling, and decommissioning of nuclear facilities. Some of the key responsibilities will include:


  • Delivering high quality technical documentation.
  • Producing high quality proposals and bids.
  • Building and managing enduring client relationships.
  • Managing projects to ensure they meet quality, time, and cost expectations.

The types of projects you could contribute to include:


  • Using structural assessment techniques such as finite element modelling to determine if a nuclear component can safely continue in operation, and to work with the client to recommend alternative solutions if it is not.
  • Walking down a system at a power station to identify potential hazards and then assessing the impact of the findings on the continued operation of the plant. Working with the regulatory body to ensure they approve of the way the hazards are controlled.
  • Developing software to analyse the movements of fuel within the reactor to ensure the fuel is used in the most efficient manner, thus minimising nuclear waste.

  • A degree in a relevant discipline, such as General, Mechanical, Nuclear, Process or Chemical Engineering, or relevant demonstrable experience in a related industry.
  • Working in the nuclear industry, or another highly regulated industry.
  • Experience contributing to written documentation with significant technical content.
  • Actively working to, or a strong desire, to achieve chartership.
  • Be commercially astute.
  • Be motivated and driven to accept responsibility for delivery to meet time, cost, and quality objectives.

It would be to your advantage if you meet any or all the following additional requirements:


  • An understanding of the nuclear safety case process or the structure and development of safety cases.
  • Knowledge of or an interest in defueling or decommissioning.
  • Experience working with or on nuclear plant.
  • Experience working on design based or multi-disciplinary based projects.
  • Experience developing new business in a consultancy or similar environment.
