Job Id

From electricity production to defence of the nation and medical uses, the UK has benefitted from nuclear technology for more than 60 years. Now Radioactive Waste Management (RWM) is working to support and deliver safe and secure approaches to the way we continue in managing radioactive waste effectively to protect people and the environment.


As part of this work, RWM will be leading delivery of a major infrastructure project called a Geological Disposal Facility (GDF) for the permanent disposal of radioactive wastes. Similar projects are already underway in countries like Finland and Sweden. RWM, as the developer, will work in partnership with willing local communities - providing jobs, skills and investment for more than 100 years.


Safety and environmental protection are of absolute paramount importance. As Head of Nuclear Safety, you will manage and coordinate RWM’s nuclear safety requirements, activities and delivery of the nuclear transport and operational safety cases and environmental assessments for the geological disposal system.


With an outstanding track record of leading and managing safety case design programmes of comparability to the GDF programme, you will oversee the quality of the safety case design, scoping work, budgets and schedules to ensure these are successfully delivered, within agreed time-lines and cost.
