Pay & Benefits
Remarkably different to other graduate programmes, Nuclear Graduates offers you a unique opportunity to design your own development programme. A bespoke two-year plan, devised with the help of your own personal, professional mentor will allow you to develop both your technical and behavioural capabilities.
The Nuclear Graduates programme and its sponsors have developed an attractive package of support that reflects your, and your sponsors, ambitions for your development as a nuclear professional.
In addition to the world-class training and development on offer, Nuclear Graduates can also look forward to:
Total Two-Year Package: £78,900
In between secondments your cohort will come together for training and development sessions. These pathways will focus on developing both your technical and behavioural competencies, these include.
These are critical skills needed by the nuclear sector and will help you to develop your knowledge, skills and experience alongside your fellow Nuclear Graduates.
Footprints is our corporate social responsibility programme that sits at the heart of the Nuclear Graduates programme. During your two years, 10% of your total time on the programme will be dedicated to Footprints activity.
During this time you will become a Science Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM) ambassador, passing your knowledge and enthusiasm to the next generation. You will also have the opportunity, as part of a cohort of Nuclear Graduates, to undertake a footprint that will drive your understanding of the sector at a community level. This could be within the UK or an international opportunity that you will develop.
Footprints is your chance to affect real change in the real world, allowing you to engage with and understand the communities we work in and with. This is a platform for you to demonstrate the skills you have acquired, develop your understanding and gain experiences that are unique to the Nuclear Graduates programme.
Throughout your two years, you will have the opportunity to carry out additional Continuing Professional Development (CPD) training. These vary depending on your chosen discipline and your sponsor.
