Helping you find a career in the nuclear engineering industry
The nuclear industry requires highly trained individuals. Almost everyone in the industry will have a science or engineering degree, with a third of employees also having a masters degree. But the upside is that the nuclear industry is about to start looking for a lot of new talented employees. A lot of nuclear plants are ending their life cycle, so they'll need to be decommissioned, and new plants will be needed to replace them. This means there will be a lot more jobs coming up for people looking for a well paid and exciting career!
The workforce for the nuclear industry is also aging, so a lot of positions are opening up for younger people.
Nuclear energy accounts for around 20% of the UK's electricity, and as a more green alternative to fossil fuel-based power plants, we'll probably see a lot more of nuclear power plants being built over the next few decades.
There are roles for scientists, engineers, designers and much more in the nuclear industry. Safety is also a big concern, so they're always looking for specialists in that area too.
