Rolls Royce Magnox Ltd
Environment Agency Nuclear Decommissioning Authority
Why has the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority put this together?
We are a public sector body charged with the responsibility of decommissioning and clean-up of the UK's current public sector nuclear legacy. We have a major role in ensuring there is a sustainable workforce to achieve our mission. A world class graduate programme supported by a host of like-minded partners is a significant part of fulfilling that objective.
The challenges facing our industry are huge and range from decommissioning to engineering new solutions, from nuclear power stations to ship yards, from the wilds of the Highlands to the docks of Plymouth.
We need a new kind of Pioneer. Is this you?

The programme is one of the most ambitious ever put together for graduates and a formidable partnership of companies have worked together to create it.
You will undertake three industrial secondments with the opportunity for half of graduates on the scheme to spend one of these secondments abroad in countries such as the United States, France and Canada.
These structured secondments will give you the best possible experience as they are mapped against the criteria needed by professional bodies such as the IMechE, IET, RSC and IoP.
Mobility is critical to this programme. As pioneers travelling the length and breadth of the country you will experience different companies in different locations.
You will face the challenge of learning a range of managers' styles, geographical cultures, business type characteristics and how supply chains differ. The secondments are supported by off site graduate specific training. Subjects range from project management to communication skills, from nuclear technologies to commercial awareness.
Training is provided to support you and to move you towards your status as a chartered professional. You will go through a blend of behavioural and technical training at various locations throughout the UK. We will stretch your mind to take on new work processes and commercial challenges, whilst equipping you to deliver your day job – changing the face of our industry forever.
You will mix with people from different backgrounds and disciplines, ranging from scientists to engineers, accountants to project managers.
You will have the support of a dedicated programme team, personal mentor and sponsor. Your cohort will always be there, the bonds you form in that group will be amongst the strongest you have ever made. Only the others on your programme will understand your challenge as a pioneer on this programme.
Many companies have corporate social responsibility policies. As a unique programme we were able to build ours around you. Our "Footprints" programme ties your development into leaving a lasting impact on the areas you work in. This is delivered in two ways:
"Footprints Days"; and
10% of your time.
This is an innovative and exclusive programme designed for the nuclear graduate scheme. You will go with your cohort on three sets of two programme days looking at distinctive issues facing the UK as a whole today. These will include environment, business and community. You will find out how the economy works, what life is like outside the nuclear industry and most important how you can impact it through your 10% voluntary time.
Following the Footprints days you will work use 10% of your time to work as STEM ambassadors with schools in your area and gain an understanding of small and medium sized enterprises. All of which can be mapped into your professional development as well as giving you the opportunity to meet characters from different walks of life.
