WHERE YOU CAN JOIN US
See the list below to find out more about the areas of our business that are offering places on our Physics programme for Autumn 2019. But no matter which team you join, you could be based anywhere in the UK. That’s why we ask all our graduates to be flexible and willing to move during their programme.
CAVENDISH NUCLEAR Learn more and apply
Cavendish Nuclear is the UK’s leading nuclear services company, with ambitious plans for growth at home and abroad. We are a wholly owned subsidiary of Babcock International Group, delivering complex projects across the span of the nuclear lifecycle. Our work ranges from design and build and working-life extensions of existing nuclear plant to the safe decommissioning and remediation of legacy sites. Whether on our own, or with one of our partners, we apply proven experience and trusted expertise to deliver complex solutions. We’re looking for graduates with a wide range of qualities, including high technical skills, good interpersonal skills and a willingness to learn and adapt to new circumstances.
You’ll probably call Manchester home, but you could also work from Bristol, Leicester and client sites (including nuclear power stations, or Sellafield in Cumbria). The programme requires graduates to be mobile in order to experience placements across multiple locations.
WHAT YOU’LL BE DOINGYou’ll be based in our radiometric instrument laboratories at Sellafield in Cumbria for the four years of your programme. In that time, you’ll design, test, calibrate and take care of the instrumentation that measures all types of radiation for our clients’ sites around the world, which will give you all the experience you need to get your head around the technical detail and develop an understanding of how this part of our business contributes to our success.
WHAT YOU’LL GET OUT OF ITEverything builds towards you getting professional registration, such as with the Institute of Physics. That will help you move into a more senior role after the programme. And we’ll give you full support every step of the way, along with a competitive starting salary of £28k - £30k.
WHAT YOU'LL NEEDWe’re looking for a 2:1 (Hons) degree in Physics. And because the programme is accredited by the IMechE and IET, your degree will need to be accredited by one of those institutions too. You’ll also need to satisfy the MOD’s security requirements (and may need to complete a medical assessment).
