Nuclear Regulator -   Wallingford, Oxfordshire (1 role) and either Penrith or Preston (1 role).  Salary £46,732 - £48,000 pa.  Vacancy reference 7285

In our nuclear regulation teams, we protect and improve the environment through our regulation of radioactive waste from the nuclear industry. We are seeking six nuclear professionals to join our experienced teams to deliver this work.

The roles

As a Lead Nuclear Regulator, you’ll lead on the environmental regulation of nuclear sites from new build through to decommissioning. You’ll work with operators to improve their performance and take action where environmental standards fall short. Explaining our work to members of the public is an essential part of this role.

Some of your work may involve the assessment and permitting of new reactor designs.  You’ll be working with international organisations and ensuring that they can fully understand and comply with UK requirements. You’ll be working side by side with the Office for Nuclear Regulation, so an appreciation of safety and environmental requirements is required.  You’ll have experience of working in, or regulating the nuclear industry or radioactive substances.

As a Nuclear Regulator you will support Lead Nuclear Regulators in the delivery of similar work. Your range of experience may be less and you’ll be looking to develop your skills further.

These roles offer:

  • opportunities to broaden your skills through involvement in a range of projects and programmes across the nuclear industry
  • access to a wide range of training courses to enhance your capabilities
  • a flexible working policy
  • a career average pension scheme with generous employer contributions
