You'll work to build an even better industry.
And your own unique role.
Often in the public eye, the Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR) is a growing, rapidly-evolving public corporation. Essentially, we are the UK's independent regulatory body for nuclear safety, security and safeguards, and our primary role is to regulate the nuclear industry effectively. To achieve our ambitions, we need a proven Programme Manager to work within our Regulatory Directorate. With your initiative and motivation, you'll shape your role and build your reputation within ONR.
Our five Regulatory divisions are responsible for regulating all aspects of the nuclear industry. That means you could be directly supporting the delivery of a diverse portfolio of regulation as a Programme Manager. Whatever the purpose of the programme, you will facilitate the delivery of regulation whilst, meeting deadlines, costs and high quality standards.
It's a fast-paced environment where you'll need to think on your feet. You'll be the person defining scope, managing expectations, escalating risks and monitoring progress. Every day, you'll be dealing with multiple contacts, both within and outside the organisation - collaboration will be essential when it comes to programme delivery.
A skilled Programme Manager, you'll have recognised PPM qualifications. They could include PRINCE2 Practitioner, Managing Successful Programmes and APM PMQ/PPQ. With this background, you'll have a good grasp of programme delivery frameworks, tools and processes. You'll also have worked with varying levels of risk and impact, and developed a broad range of project documentation. This expertise will give you the credibility to lead teams and form vital partnerships. Proactive and a natural people person, you'll be adept at building high-level relationships, including with multi-disciplinary technical specialists. An understanding of regulatory environments is helpful but not essential.
We offer competitive salaries at the ONR, with this role attracting a salary of £51,203 to £58,638. Furthermore, you'll be eligible for a substantial Civil Service Pension scheme (including ill-health retirement and lump sum family benefits). Plus, you'll receive a generous holiday entitlement.
ONR is a Public Corporation with a Mission to provide efficient and effective regulation of the nuclear industry, holding it to account on behalf of the public. Our staff are drawn from a wide range of professional backgrounds in order to run a stand-alone business with specialist inspectors to deliver our core business including civil engineering, radiological protection, human factors, chemical engineering, mechanical engineering and nuclear physics. And together they're involved in everything from assessing safety cases, inspecting nuclear sites, communicating our decisions, training new recruits and representing the UK and ONR within the wider international nuclear community.
