At Sellafield, we’re true pioneers. We led the world in nuclear power production, now we’re the world’s first movers into environmental remediation. Building on our rich history, we’re striding into an era where we’ll transform the environment, local society, the regional economy and the global nuclear industry.

Covering six square kilometres, the site in West Cumbria is home to more than 200 nuclear facilities. A team of 11,000 people here work alongside our supply chain partners, to tackle a diverse portfolio of decommissioning, reprocessing, spent fuel management, nuclear waste management and nuclear material management.

We are developing a high-performance, value-led organisation that reduces high hazard faster, costs the taxpayer less, and responds more quickly to potential funding changes. At the same time, we are looking for ways to maximise the socio-economic benefit from our funding and supply chain spend.

Our Graduate Programme

In the two years that you’re a part of our graduate programme, we’ll give you all the support you need to achieve chartered status and the opportunity to do placements in a variety of business areas. We’ll ensure we maximise your skills, confidence and experience.

We want you to grow in every sense. Our future, as well as yours depends on you hitting the peak of your potential. We’ll invest significant resources developing your personal and behavioural skills so that you become an influential all-round professional.

We have a thriving graduate community run by an elected group of representatives who organise frequent social activities ensuring you play as hard as you work. You will also be assigned a graduate buddy who will be more of a peer support and will help you move smoothly from student to professional life.

Our Construction Programme

The Construction Function is key in the integrated project delivery model, the team responsible for the multi-disciplinary engineering to deliver the construction works whilst assuring compliance with several Nuclear Site License Conditions.

This broad function means that construction graduates will typically be exposed to all areas of Sellafield’s project delivery – involved in design and commercial specification as well as on-site involvement with significant construction work in a variety of areas and operational plants across the site. This provides you with a range of experiences during their placement, aiding both your career and routes to chartered status in your chosen discipline.

A career in the construction profession means being involved in technical solutions to site challenges and offers opportunities to work on innovative and novel systems which may not be seen outside of Sellafield.
