Where the STEM jobs are
Gradcracker works here's the proof
The Nuclear Engineering graduate scheme is designed to develop highly ambitious and determined people into the nuclear engineers of the future.
The Nuclear Engineering graduate scheme lasts for two years and is your opportunity to undertake various placements at the only UK company which manufacturers’ nuclear powered submarines. Specifically, these varied and diverse placements can include nuclear safety and regulation; management of fuel on site; nuclear engineering and reactor build, test and commissioning. On completion of the scheme, you will begin working full time in one of these nuclear related placements subject to business requirements.
Because BAE Systems is currently manufacturing both the Astute Class and Dreadnought Class of submarines, the Nuclear Engineering graduate scheme provides the unique opportunity to join the only UK business which tests and commissions submarine nuclear reactors.
In your day to day role, you will have the opportunity to learn from colleagues who are experts in their field. Alongside your placement work, there are also opportunities to undertake relevant training and outward bound courses, as well as to organise events with other businesses, local colleges and nuclear professional bodies, to develop and equip you with a rounded skill set.
To apply, you’ll need to be on course for achieving a 2:2 Bachelor’s degree in an engineering, numerical or scientific subject, be eligible to work in the UK, and be able to successfully achieve security clearance.
Our Submarines business has been safely delivering world class submarines to the UK Royal Navy for more than a century.
Today we are the prime contractor in the Astute programme and the UK’s only designer and builder of nuclear powered submarines – one of the world’s most complex engineering challenges. The first three submarines in the class, HMS Astute, HMS Ambush and HMS Artful, are now in service with the Royal Navy and the final four Astute class submarines are at various stages of construction at the Barrow site.
We are also the industrial lead for the Dreadnought programme, the Royal Navy’s next generation of nuclear deterrent submarines. Construction of the first of four submarines, named Dreadnought, began last year
Our Submarines business employs approximately 8,700 people and in 2017 we spent around £700m with over 700 suppliers
