Our culture of continuous improvement is underpinned by commitment to professional and personal development few can match.
Projects on an epic scale
The Sellafield site is one of the biggest construction sites in the UK. Our challenges are almost always industry firsts. Hazard reduction is incredibly demanding technically, calling for vision, imagination and expertise. The complexity of each project is unmatched anywhere else in the nuclear sector.
We currently have 11 major projects either in design or construction, with more than £350 million per year invested. Whether you’re designing, delivering or supporting these projects, we’re talking about CV-defining opportunities.

Our relentless pursuit of excellence is reflected in our health, safety, security and environmental performance, and the quality of the products and services we deliver to our customers. One in five of our employees have a specific safety role – helping to ensure that our safety performance is world-class across our operations and sites.
