Would you like to have a key role supporting business objectives to drive progress on a significant project of national importance that will make a positive difference to future generations?

Radioactive Waste Management (RWM) is responsible for delivering one of the UK’s largest and most complex environmental infrastructure projects.

Role description

Your role as an Special Projects Advisor will directly influence the successful delivery of tasks and project initiatives to the highest possible standard.


  • You will advise and support the Director and Senior Leadership Team so your ability to influence and communicate effectively is key;
  • You will lead on key Directorate projects ensuring the mitigation of any risk to RWM;
  • You will engage heavily with Stakeholders, representing Directors across all internal and external communities;
  • You will also work with Directors’ Personal Assistants to ensure that there is prioritisation and management of Director activities to ensure key decisions and outcomes are delivered and objectives and actions met.

Essential skills

These roles would suit experience gained within a business setting and ideally highly regulated, process environments similar to that of the civil nuclear sector.


Aside from the opportunity to be part of such an exciting and first-of-a-kind project, this is also an excellent career opportunity and much of the work you will undertake in support of business objectives will be task and project related, as part of a dynamic team.

You won’t stand still in your career. Whilst you will be allocated to a specific Directorate/ Senior Leadership Team to lead on Directorate level projects, and other strategic activity, you will also have the opportunity to rotate across Directorates to broaden your knowledge and experience.

RWM is growing. With an organisation that is to grow from 200 people to 400+ people over the next 4 years, your responsibilities will expand with it. As a result, this role offers you the opportunity to develop both your skill set and your career.

The money’s great. The base salary is competitive with a range of £39,978- £47,556 and an annual bonus (up to 30%), 30 days of annual leave (with public holidays on top) and one of the most generous pensions currently available in the UK (Civil Service Alpha Pension Scheme).

They’re not just about 9-5. Your life outside of work is important to RWM and so they welcome conversations about flexibility to help you meet both personal and professional commitments.

I’ve been within recruitment for over a decade covering fast paced contract recruitment, project recruitment and account management, within large scale business and niche consultancy environments, all within the nuclear industry. I am passionate about the point where company meets individual to ensure the best fit professionally, personally and culturally, and providing an excellent customer service sits at the core of everything I do and strive to deliver.
