See the list below to find out more about the areas of our business that are offering places on our Science and Hazard Management 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 NUCLEARLearn 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).



You will be a key team member on every placement. You may be involved with the assessment of options for waste treatment and disposal from nuclear decommissioning projects, which could include discussions with a range of stakeholders to optimise solutions or develop mitigations for implementation. Equally, you may be looking at environmental enhancement projects to improve the areas around client sites. You will also have opportunities to work with other specialists such as Hazard Management Consultants. The possibilities are many and varied. Whatever you work on, you can be sure you’ll be making a real difference.


We’ll match your passions to your skills to help you build a rewarding career as a versatile and highly competent specialist, whether that’s within Waste Management, Environmental or Decommissioning Planning. The range of work you’ll cover will help you figure out what you excel at. And once you know that, we’ll help you go as far as you can. We’ll support you, with your own mentor, as you work to become a Chartered Environmentalist or Chartered Scientist and give you a competitive starting salary of £29k - £31k (depending on location, role and qualifications).


You’ll need a 2:1 BSc (Hons) degree in Physics, Engineering, Environmental Science/Studies or Chemistry (or related subjects). You’ll also need to satisfy the MOD’s security requirements (and may need to complete a medical assessment).
