You will apply all of your knowledge and experience across the new nuclear projects, to ensure that the obligations of the Client under Construction (Design Management) Regulations 2015 are discharged in a manner of both legal compliance and support to the Principal Contractor, Principal Designer and Contract Partners.


This is an excellent opportunity for a great communicator, who can demonstrate broad experience in construction and nuclear settings.

We’re a disability confident employer and we’ll do all we can to help with your application, making adjustments as you need. 


We’ll value the difference you bring and offer opportunities for you to thrive and succeed.
