Get Into Nuclear

The key point of interest for you upon reviewing this is role is that we have not had to use the green highlighter at any point as there are no nuclear specific requirements for you to gain employment in a company that manufactures components in the UK Nuclear Industry. You will see that this role is for an experienced person who has the ability to work within a highly regulated environment and to work to tight tolerances. One thing not mentioned above but will be the case is that if there is any job/contract specific requirements (e.g. a client cleanliness specification) training will be undertaken either on the job or as part of the contract works.

You can find out more about CNC training at the CNC Training Centre if you feel that you'd like to up-skill yourself for such a role.
