Rolls-Royce SMR to create 400 jobs

Rolls-Royce SMR has revealed it is creating 400 jobs and has appointed nuclear recruitment specialists, RPOne – part of the Morson Group – to support its recruitment campaign.

Rolls-Royce SMR’s small modular reactor (SMR) programme is the first of its kind in the UK, with the opportunity to develop a factory-built nuclear power plant that is deliverable and scalable at a global level.

Rolls-Royce SMR is the UK domestic energy champion and will play a key role in achieving the Government’s British Energy Security Strategy, which pledges to accelerate the expansion of nuclear by delivering the equivalent of one nuclear reactor per year instead of one per decade.

Having begun the design assessment process with the UK regulators, the organisation is at a point where it needs to significantly increase its workforce.

Roles will be open to experienced nuclear professionals, young talent and graduates alike.

Adam Ellis, talent & HR director at Rolls-Royce SMR, said: “This is a perfect opportunity for talented individuals to join our team and bring new ideas and concepts to the table that will create a legacy for generations to come.

“We want to build a diverse team of people with a background in science, a passion for nuclear, or from a sector with transferable skills, with a diverse mix of skills and experiences. This is the most exciting nuclear programme in the UK right now, and anyone joining the team has the chance to develop their role and carve a career for life.”

Adam added: “RPOne and Morson share these exact ambitions for our future, and their proven nuclear credentials will play an important role in enabling us to source and retain the best talent.”

Ged Mason OBE, CEO at Morson Group, said: “Rolls-Royce SMR has the potential to be truly pivotal in the way the UK – and the rest of the world – sources and uses power. The company is setting new standards in recruitment by opening its doors to anyone who has a passion to change norms in science. While there are several niche roles available, which require specific skillsets, others are open to those who want to help define our futures.

“Equality, diversity & inclusion is vital to Rolls-Royce SMR, so part of our collaborative focus will be bringing multiple perceptions to the table. It’s a disruptor to the market, and we want candidates of all backgrounds, with all interests, to join the team to offer greater insight and creativity, so that Rolls-Royce SMR can deliver a solution that is representative of society today and in the future.

“At its peak, the programme has the potential to create some 40,000 jobs and generate £52bn in economic benefit.”
