Chemical Engineering


We require strong Chemical Engineering graduates to be based at our main design offices in Warrington, Cheshire, to work on some of the UK's most challenging nuclear projects.

Over the two-year programme you will gain an appreciation for the design life-cycle; by being involved in the initial concept design through optioneering, detailed design, procurement, installation, commissioning, operation and decommissioning.

You will have the opportunity to work within a fully integrated project community of nuclear engineers and specialists, which include mechanical engineers, electrical, control and instrumentation (EC&I) engineers, civil, structural and architectural (CS&A) engineers, heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) engineers, radiation and health physics specialists and nuclear safety case consultants, who are all essential to deliver a modern and safe nuclear facility in the UK (and abroad).

The graduate programme is accredited by the Institute of Chemical Engineers (IChemE). On this two-year programme you will learn modern engineering and design techniques and how to apply your developing chemical engineering knowledge and skills within a vibrant nuclear environment to meet the challenges of a live project for all or any part of the whole project lifecycle. The knowledge and experience you acquire through your two-year graduate training will support you in becoming a Chartered Engineer.

To meet these opportunities you will need to possess a strong design delivery and client service focus, with the ability to work alone and within a team. Excellent oral and written communication skills complemented with modern computer and office skills are deemed essential.


You will require a good M.Eng. or M.Sc. Chemical Engineering. As our training programme is accredited by the IChemE we prefer graduates to have degrees that are accredited by the IChemE.
