The Opportunity

Are you looking for a career which is rewarding, at the cutting edge of project development and where you can really make a difference? Come and join our expanding Sizewell C (SZC) team and work on one of the most exciting and largest megaprojects in the UK, whilst being at the forefront of the UK’s climate change agenda and energy policy. Following on from the success of Hinkley Point C (HPC), the SZC Project is a nuclear new build project in Suffolk, which has obtained planning approval and Government financing support. The project is now seeking private investment with a view to start construction in 2024. When completed, it will provide dependable electricity to 6 million homes for 60 years, which along with renewables, will support Britain to achieve Net Zero by 2050.


We have a fantastic opportunity for an experienced Programme Manager to join our Engineering and Delivery function within the Sizewell C project.

This’ll be achieved by putting in place the organisation, processes and measures to monitor performance, and effectively manage the scope of work covered by the SZC Conventional Island, Balance of Plant or Heat Sink areas with more than a £1bn in capital value.



The Skills


You’ll be a hands- on leader with proven experience in strategic management at a senior level. Your technical expertise will allow you to understand and communicate complex technical ideas to a range of audiences.
