nucleargraduates 2017 - Mechanical Engineering - Nuclear AMRC

Nucleargraduates is a ground-breaking graduate programme created by the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority and sponsored by organisations across the nuclear industry including Jacobs, Sellafield Ltd, Rolls-Royce, the Office for Nuclear Regulation and International Nuclear Services amongst others. The scheme is also involved with more than 20 other companies and organisations across the industry.

We are looking to recruit two Mechanical Engineering graduates for the Nuclear Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (Nuclear AMRC) for our 2017 intake. Successful graduates would join the Nuclear AMRC operations team contributing directly to their manufacturing development programmes.

The two-year programme consists of three secondments chosen by you. You can expect to find yourself working with Government, on-site, with the private sector supply chain and regulatory authorities. There is also the possibility of undertaking an international secondment.  A dedicated mentor, assigned to you upon starting the programme, will help you plan a two-year programme unique to you and your development goals setting you on the road to chartership.

Young engineers and scientists will plan a crucial role in our industry. You will get a wealth of technical experience and opportunity to try out more commercial opportunities.

With a clear mission ‘to help UK manufacturers win work in the civil nuclear industry – in new build, operations and decommissioning’ the Nuclear AMRC has two principal work streams – innovative manufacturing and supply chain development. Founded by EDF, Areva, Westinghouse, Rolls-Royce, Tata Steel and Sheffield Forgemasters, the Centre works closely with Small and Medium Enterprises (SME’s) for the nuclear supply chain.

Specialising in large, complex components for challenging environments the Centre has a 5,000 square metre manufacturing innovation facility, equipped with multi-million pound capabilities including machining, metrology, non-destructive examination, advanced welding and cladding, additive manufacturing and power – HIP processing. In 2015 the Nuclear AMRC helped companies win £600 million of new business and created or sustained over 3,000 jobs in the nuclear sector.

Your nucleargraduates programme will be broken down into technical and behavioural training. It will be structured against the needs of the institute with whom you’re aiming to gain chartered engineer status. You will come together with your fellow graduates to complete ‘core’ training as well as having the benefit of an individual training budget for training specific to your personal development.

On top of this you will spend 10% of your time with us on Footprints, our corporate social responsibility programme. You will have the opportunity to become a STEM ambassador passing on your knowledge and enthusiasm to the next generation of scientists and engineers. You will establish a start-up company, developing your commercial awareness and gaining an appreciation of the challenged faced by a small business. You will work with local community projects and meet inspirational individuals.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a world-class centre of excellence for manufacturing innovation.
