Are you interested in helping to deliver one of the country’s most environmentally significant national infrastructure projects?
Nuclear Waste Services, is part of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority group and is responsible for planning and delivering geological disposal of the UK’s most hazardous radioactive waste in the UK
A Geological Disposal Facility (GDF) is the internationally agreed, and only viable permanent answer to the UK’s existing radioactive waste. Scientists around the world agree that a GDF – which will contain the waste deep underground in highly engineered vaults and tunnels – will keep it safe and secure over the hundreds of thousands of years it will take for the radioactivity to naturally decay.
We collaborate with scientists around the world on multi-million pound research programmes, sharing the latest scientific advances and best practice. We also work with the producers of radioactive waste to find ways to package it that are suitable for disposal in a GDF.
Our vision is to create a safer future by managing radioactive waste effectively, to protect people and the environment and our values of Professional, Safe, Engaging and Learning are very important to us. The organisation is undergoing significant change and is a dynamic and exciting place to work.
