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 2020. 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 nuclear lifecycle. Our work includes supporting delivery of new build nuclear power plants, extending the working-life of existing nuclear plants and safely decommissioning legacy sites. Whether on our own, or with one of our partners, we apply our proven experience and trusted expertise to deliver complex nuclear programmes safer, faster, at lower cost. 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 could be based in a number of locations, so you will need to be ready and willing to move throughout your programme. You’ll probably call Warrington, Bristol, Leicester or Newbury home, but you could also work from client sites (including nuclear power stations, or Sellafield in Cumbria and Dounreay in Scotland).
UNFORTUNATELY WE ARE NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR THIS ROLE BUT IF WE DO NOT MEET OUR REQUIRED QUOTA WE WILL REOPEN THE ROLE SO PLEASE CHECK BACK ON A REGULAR BASIS.
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 £29k - £31k.
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, it is desirable that your degree is 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).
