Knowledge, Experience and Skills

You will have experience developing and implementing best practice reporting, governance & performance management as well as leading successful teams within project and programme controls.

Experience within the nuclear industry is not required, however, you should understand the complex delivery requirements within highly regulated industries.

You will receive a competitive base salary and annual bonus, 30 days of annual leave (on top of public holidays) and one of the most generous pensions currently available in the UK (Civil Service Alpha Pension Scheme).

With an organisation that is to grow from 200 people to 500 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.

Your life outside of work is important to RWM and so they would welcome a conversation about any flexibility that you may require to meet both your home and professional commitments.
