Upon accepting an offer for a place on the nucleargraduates programme, you will be matched with one of our sponsors. Confirmation of sponsors recruiting mechanical engineers will be provided prior to assessment centre.
The two-year programme consists of three secondments chosen by you. 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, to date our graduates have completed secondments with over 100 different organisations and bodies across the nuclear industry, both at home and abroad. 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.
Young engineers and scientists play a crucial role in our industry. You will have the chance to make progress on vital manufacturing projects with Nuclear, AMRC, shape industrial strategy with the NDA, research new commercial reactor designs for both civil nuclear and power and nuclear propulsion submarines with Rolls-Royce or develop your commercial skills with International Nuclear Services. Needless to say you will get a wealth of technical and commercial experience.
This is a unique opportunity to experience the different aspects of our complex, ever-changing industry before starting employment with your chosen sponsoring organisation to continue your career and professional development.
Your programme will be broken down into technical and behavioural training structured against the needs of the professional institue with whom you will be working to gain chartered engineer 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 on 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 engineers and scientists.
You will establish a start-up company, developing your commercial awareness and growing your appreciation of the challenges faced by a small business. You will work with local community projects, meeting inspirational individuals.
