Thomas Thor are working in an exclusive partnership with newcleo to support their UK operational expansion and create the senior structure of their technical delivery team.
Privately funded and headquartered in London, newcleo was launched in 2021 to be a disruptor in the field of nuclear energy. Its mission is to generate safe, clean, economic and practically inexhaustible energy for the world, through a radically innovative combination of existing, accessible technologies. With visionary co-founders, newcleo capitalises on thirty years of R&D activity in metal-cooled fast reactors and liquid-lead cooling systems, and our senior management and advisory team can boast hundreds of years in cumulative hands-on experience.
newcleo’s technology, mostly comprising a novel approach to already qualified solutions, addresses equally well the three challenges affecting the nuclear industry to date: waste, safety and cost.
In the UK, newcleo’s immediate focus is on delivering a prototype 30MWe LFR by 2030 followed by an initial battery of 4-6 x 200MWe reactors with deployment planned for the early 2030s. We are also considering options for the manufacture and supply of MOX fuel. We are building our team to meet this challenging and exciting objective.
The Head of Commercial will be responsible for procurement/ commercial management and supply chain management across newcleo’s UK reactor projects. You will operate at strategic level including defining the overall commercial and supply chain strategy for development, implementation and operations in collaboration with the wider leadership team, ensuring robust make/ buy decisions, proportionate value for money demonstration, a competent and well incentivised supply chain, overall optimisation of risk apportionment and maximising synergies and alignment with newcleo’s international operations. You will lead a small team of commercial professionals to establish best practice arrangements and manage day-to-day procurement, commercial and supply chain activities, collaborating internationally to ensure consistency across newcleo. The role provides significant opportunity to shape the commercial direction of newcleo’s UK projects as part of an exciting and rapidly growing business.
