This is a fantastic opportunity to join our award-winning Nuclear Safety team delivering sustainable projects for our communities, planet and society. 

Hydrock 3T is a nuclear safety consultancy providing safety case and assessment advice to support our clients in achieving site licensing from UK and/or international regulators.

We have a number of varied and interesting projects ongoing and are looking to recruit recent graduates to join our team as Nuclear Safety Assessors.   

What will your role involve? 

A Nuclear Safety Assessor will typically work as part of a project team to identify the initiating failures that lead to major hazards.

These are subsequently analysed to determine their consequences and the appropriate level of preventative or mitigatory controls required.

This information will be captured in the Safety Assessment documentation to demonstrate that the risks associated with an operation adhere to corporate and regulatory requirements. 

 To succeed in this role, you’ll need:

  • A relevant BSc/ BEng/ MSc/ MEng or equivalent (a master's in mechanical, chemical, aeronautical engineering or physics)
  • A passion and talent for Nuclear Safety
  • To be confident, outgoing and someone who enjoys being part of a busy team
  • Experience of working in the nuclear industry – particularly safety case development – is desirable, but not essential.
  • To be an articulate communicator with well-developed interpersonal skills
  • To be a self-starter who is tenacious in concluding tasks
  • To be driven, ambitious and enjoy change and variety
  • To buy into Hydrock’s values and ethos
