International Nuclear Services (INS) are recruiting for a Transport Criticality Safety Expert – Junior and Senior Roles available

Exciting Career opportunities to join a new and expanding Transport Criticality and Shielding Team.

Salary range is flexible for the right candidate and is in the range £50,946 - £74,394 plus excellent benefits.

The permanent roles are based in Warrington, Cheshire but with the opportunity for home-working (although regular attendance in the office is required).

Applications for those seeking part-time work or fixed term contract work will also be considered.

INS, the global provider of nuclear transport solutions, is establishing a new part of their business that will complement their aspiration to become a one stop shop for the worldwide transport of nuclear materials. Historically, INS has procured criticality and shielding services from its fellow NDA subsidiaries and also from the supply chain. INS recognises that these skills are key to that of its own transport and package design business, but also to that of the NDA mission to decommission the civil nuclear sites in the UK. These key skills are not common in the supply chain so INS wish to build a key centre of expertise that will expand and service the requirements of both the civil and defence sectors of nuclear material transport.

As key members of the newly formed Criticality and Shielding for Transport team, your responsibilities will include: providing advice to the commercial team in the assessment of business opportunities; advising the engineering and design team to ensure criticality and shielding considerations are fully addressed from the outset of the design process, and preparing criticality assessments forming part of package transport safety case submissions to enable INS’ transport business. The latter will require considerable liaison with specialists within the regulatory organisations. Ensuring customer delivery is maintained, you will work as part of the team to meet the requirements of INS’ strategy and 5-year plan.

Providing guidance, support and advice you will demonstrate the tenacity, drive and resilience to engage and develop positive relations with regulators and customers.

These are highly complex and challenging issues. If you are interested in this position and have the necessary experience to help lead INS’ work, then we look forward to receiving your application.

Applications are welcomed from:

  • Experts in the field of criticality (not solely with transport experience)

  • Junior roles; if you believe you have the skills and drive to develop into these roles.

A detailed candidate information pack is available upon request, which provides full information on the roles and candidate criteria.

If you wish to apply for either of these roles, please supply the following documentation:

  • A comprehensive CV/biography setting out your career history, with responsibilities and achievements.

  • A supporting statement that addresses the criteria in of the person specification.

  • Please also state details of two referees together with a brief statement of the capacity in which, and the length of time for which, they have known you.

It is essential in your written application that you provide as full an answer as possible to each of the criteria stated in the person specification to ensure your application covers all the relevant experience that the selection panel will be looking for in the sift process.
