Introduction

Rolls-Royce SMR was established with one clear goal - to deliver clean, affordable energy for all.

Rolls-Royce SMR offers a radically different approach to delivering nuclear power. A 90% factory-built solution, drastically reducing project risk, shortening construction times and increasing delivery certainty.

The Rolls-Royce SMR is a world-class global product for a global market - using established nuclear technology developed by a UK-based team building on decades of engineering, manufacturing and nuclear reactor design experience.

About the position

Rolls-Royce SMR realises that to embark on an endeavour of SMR design, construction and deployment will require some of the brightest minds. Across the nuclear industry, key skills are in high demand, with a declining number of subject matter leads. With this in mind, Rolls-Royce SMR are looking for a number of individuals eager to develop to become subject matter experts in the field of nuclear safety and licensing. The role spans across safety case development, hazard identification and safety analysis and will be key in supporting the development of the Rolls-Royce SMR Power Station and the successful completion of the Generic Design Assessment process. The post holder may be early in their career within the nuclear industry or looking to change career within the nuclear industry and apply their existing knowledge/skillset. Full training will be given and a development plan to provide coaching, mentoring and the provision of experience will be agreed with the post holders.

-         In line with the organisational plan and with colleagues, develop and execute a programme of training, developing and mentoring into the chosen field of expertise.

-         Provide support and carry out work to assist other members of the Regulatory Affairs team in pursuit of a successful GDA and other licensing matters.

-         Working together with colleagues across the business, develop and support others in the development of new subject matter experts.

-         Keeping up to date with developments in the nuclear industry and the work of the appropriate external industry groups in the UK and worldwide.

-         This is a rare opportunity for an experienced and well-motivated manufacturing engineer to join a team within a fledgling organisation setting up new manufacturing capability in the UK.

Who we are?

Rolls-Royce SMR’s small modular reactor (SMR) programme is the first of its kind in the UK.

A Rolls-Royce SMR power station will have the capacity to generate 470mw of low-carbon energy, equivalent to more than 150 onshore wind turbines. It will provide consistent baseload generation for at least 60 years, helping achieve the Government’s target of 24GW of nuclear energy by 2050.

In addition to stable base load power, Rolls-Royce SMRs will be able to provide energy for the manufacture of green hydrogen and synthetic fuels, to support the path to Net Zero and the decarbonisation of transport.

Out technology is based upon well-established Pressurised Water Reactor (PWR) technology, in use all over the world, but Rolls-Royce SMR’s unique approach will see the reactor components built in factory conditions and assembled on site.

Our factory-built model is entirely scalable, as demand increases, we invest in further factories using the same design and management systems used for all our SMRs.

When fully operational the Rolls-Royce SMR programme is forecast to create 40,000 regional UK jobs by 2050 and generate £52bn in economic benefit.  

Having begun the design assessment process with the UK regulators, the organisation is at a point where it needs to significantly increase its workforce, offering candidates the opportunity to work with cutting edge technology within a world-class team.
