Health Physics

When it comes to safety, we insist on the highest standards – everywhere. Especially in our radiological projects at Devonport Royal Dockyard, Plymouth. Over the course of two years, you’ll move from team to team, learning how we protect our people and the environment while we work on critical projects.

Where you can join us

Places on our Health Physics graduate programme for Autumn 2018 are available within our Marine (Plymouth) sector. 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.

What you'll be doing

Any kind of nuclear engineering is complex, but when you’re working on the newest class of submarines in the MOD’s fleet, you’re faced with new challenges every day. As part of a team of people with lots of different skills, you’ll make sure that the site’s safety arrangements are always up to scratch.
