Building the nuclear sector of the future, your time as a mechanical engineering nucleargraduate will help to shape the sector.
Over 2 years you will experience mechanical engineering challenges at the heart of the UK’s nuclear sector, contributing to cutting edge, innovative design and development across the sector.
Your skills in design, development and implementation will aid your sponsor and secondment hosts in addressing some of the biggest challenges in the sector, for example, reactor design, testing of systems in plant operations or securing safety in critical areas.
With a sector renowned worldwide for its innovation, nucleargraduates have the opportunity to make a real impact and contribute to the development of the future. Join us as a nucleargraduate mechanical engineer and make that difference.
You will have a dedicated industry sponsor who will fund the programme on your behalf. Upon completion, you will join them in a substantive role on completion of the programme.
Pay & Benefits
The nucleargraduates 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.
The package includes:
In between secondments your cohort will come together for residential 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 nucleargraduates.
Footprints is our corporate social responsibility programme that sits at the heart of the nucleargraduates scheme. 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’ll establish a start-up company to help understand the challenges that small companies face and you’ll work with local community projects where you’ll meet some inspirational individuals. You will also have the opportunity, as part of a cohort of nucleargraduates, 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 nucleargraduates 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, but could include:
