Selection

We want to make the recruitment process as easy and straightforward for you whilst allowing you the opportunity to demonstrate you skills and expertise.

Application form & on-line tests – Our application form will allow you to provide information on your academic qualifications and work experience. On-line tests – verbal, numerical and logical reasoning allow for candidates to be assessed fairly. A Situational Judgement Questionnaire provides the opportunity for us to assess your suitability for our sponsors and their operations. Check the individual vacancies for closing dates.

Video Interview – Complete a 15 minute on-line video interview at a time / location convenient to you. The interview can be completed using a PC, Laptop, tablet or smartphone.

Assessment Centre – Our two day assessment centre will allow you to show us what you can bring to our industry and sponsor organisations through a number of exercises – individual interviews, role play and group exercises. You will have the opportunity to learn more about our ground-breaking programme, our world class industry and the organisations looking to sponsor you.

Final Decision – We aim to inform you of our decision within a week of attending an assessment centre.

The importance of security

Our industry is committed to maintaining its excellent record for both safety and security. That's why your application will be subject to security checks, and your appointment will be subject to pre-employment checks, defined by UK Government policy.

These checks include employment or education references and criminal record checks. You'll need formal proof of identity and nationality – and if you have lived abroad we may need criminal record checks to be carried out in the country concerned. This will be at your expense and you must produce an appropriate certificate before security checks can be completed.

In some instances, your nationality will mean that we need to carry out further checks in accordance with international agreements which the UK has signed up to. In this case there can be a long wait in getting the authority to carry out research, projects or other studies with us. Approval may be given too late for you to take part in a programme or may not be given at all. So you should consider your personal circumstances before applying to the nucleargraduates programme.
