The Opportunity

Are you looking for a career which is rewarding, at the cutting edge of project development and where you can really make a difference? Come and join our expanding Sizewell C (SZC) team and work on one of the most exciting projects in the UK, whilst being at the forefront of the UK’s climate change agenda and energy policy. The SZC Project is a ~£20bn nuclear new build project in Suffolk which has started construction. When completed, it will provide dependable electricity to 6 million homes for 60 years, which along with renewables, will support Britain to achieve Net Zero by 2050.

We now have a fantastic opportunity for several Programme Managers to ensure the end-to-end delivery of a large scope of systems, structures and components for the SZC Nuclear Island. 

Our teams are set up to work flexibly. If you’re able to travel to the office to collaborate with your team and stakeholders when required, you can be based anywhere in the UK. We provide a full suite of IT equipment to ensure that our employees can work from home comfortably and effectively. 

The Role

You’ll lead a group of Senior Project Managers and Project Managers, ensuring that project deliverables are completed to time, cost and quality standards. 

This’ll be achieved by putting in place the organisation, processes and measures to monitor performance, and effectively manage the scope of work covered by the Nuclear Island Programme.

Detailed knowledge of the end-to-end process of large projects will be key, along with excellent management ability.
