Job description

Join the new era of pioneers.

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 Business Graduate Programme

The intent of the scheme is to provide a broad overview of Business Management at Sellafield Ltd. You'll never spend more than six months in a placement and may also get the opportunity to go on secondment into the supply chain.

You could learn new business improvement techniques, support the Risk Manager in setting up their risk management arrangements or assist to model different risk-based scenarios, engage with stakeholders, set up governance arrangements and contribute to the writing of a business case.

You could find yourself supporting a Communications Manager to build their communications strategy for important changes to the business to flow from the senior leaders to operational workers and all the people in between.

No two days will be the same. You will support, coach and advise people on ways to improve the way they do things, learning continuous improvement tools, techniques and behaviours as used by many manufacturing companies like Toyota and Nissan etc.. You will be responsible for making things quicker, easier, safer and cheaper.

Social Impact Multiplied (Six)

We are transforming our organisation, seeking to accelerate the delivery of our mission while also making significant savings for the taxpayer. As part of this change, we are determined to deliver the maximum social impact from the £2bn of taxpayer money that we spend at Sellafield every year.

Six is our new approach to social impact which prioritises projects co-created with the community and stakeholders. It recognises that more can be achieved in partnership and that impact can be multiplied through collaboration. Transforming West Cumbria will take on west Cumbria's most entrenched social and economic problems.

The programme will focus on family wellbeing, financial education, community activism, and inspiring young people. In recognition of the importance Sellafield Ltd places on delivering Social Impact, graduates will be encouraged to carry out a minimum of 10 hours of social impact activity per year.

What we are looking for

We are looking for people who thrive on solving problems, who are good at engaging with a vast array of stakeholders (up to and including the senior business leaders), and who can facilitate discussion up to and including in workshop-size environments. If that's you then hit 'apply for job'.

Please note: Working at Sellafield Ltd requires you to achieve both security and medical clearance throughout the on-boarding process.
