Investigating incidents;

Enforcing the law and influencing improvement in safety cases;

Managing nuclear research contracts etc.

  • The purpose of inspection is to secure and improve nuclear safety.
  • The site inspector is the primary point of contact with the site and undertakes both planned and reactive inspections.
  • The site inspector also co-ordinates the inputs of other inspectors who assess safety submissions or manage discrete projects at particular sites.
  • This is to ensure compliance, to reassure the public and to improve safety standards.
  • When inspectors find something wrong they initially provide advice but may issue verbal and written warnings.
  • The powers available to inspectors enable them to serve Enforcement Notices and ultimately initiate prosecutions.
  • There are also a wide range of powers available under nuclear licence conditions.


Applicants must have:

  • A good honours degree, or equivalent, in an appropriate scientific or engineering subject;
  • Corporate membership of a relevant professional institution;

  • In addition to high technical ability and expertise your personal qualities are also important to us, such as:
  • Sound judgement based on your knowledge and expertise, often in a pressurised environment;
  • Drive and determination, and ability to stay calm under pressure;
  • An influential and persuasive approach to achieving objectives, emotionally resilient – able to get the job done in difficult circumstances;
  • The ability to work as part of a team;
  • Ability to effectively plan, prioritise and be forward thinking good investigative ability, and initiative to generate appropriate research.

Our inspectors come from a variety of mainly nuclear or high-hazard-related backgrounds, but all demonstrate calm and poise when working under pressure in one of the most demanding jobs in the public sector.


You will be appointed on a salary dependant on skills and experience.  Furthermore there are excellent opportunities for advancement to Principal Nuclear Inspector (max of salary range currently £69,897) and Superintending Nuclear Inspector (max of salary range currently £75,668).
