Project Planner Jobs in the Nuclear Sector


Our free e-book, "Understanding the Nuclear Industry - A Guide for Job Seekers” provides an understanding of the nuclear industry that will help Project Planners and Primavera P6 professionals to secure a job on the UK Nuclear New Build projects.

Up to eight new large scale nuclear projects are proposed. With no nuclear energy plant having been constructed in the UK in over 20 years, a key challenge will be sourcing the skilled workforce needed to construct these mega projects. The nuclear industry will need to attract Project Planning professionals from other sectors providing significant opportunities for people with the right skills. 



Nuclear is understandably different due to the potentially significant impacts of any error that occurs, its unique technology, culture, regulation and the nuclear terminology used.

Are you familiar with the term Nuclear Safety Culture, do you understand the differences between the types of nuclear reactor or which body is responsible for nuclear regulation? To successfully secure a job in nuclear it will be beneficial to have a good understanding of these differences and how the industry works.

A2O People’s nuclear team have answered these questions in our e-book which you can access on the following link "Understanding the Nuclear Industry - A Guide for Job Seekers”.



The UK Nuclear Energy Industry has developed plans to build five out of the eight identified locations. The scale of the industry’s new build aspirations provides significant employment opportunities that will create between 3,000 and over 5,000 construction jobs at peak on each site. 

The factors expected to attract candidates include:

1.       The prestige associated with working on Europe’s largest construction projects.

2.       The employment stability, with typical construction durations between 7 and 10 years.

3.       The potential of good rates of pay for candidates that meet the hiring criteria.



Hinkley Point C, the first of the proposed UK nuclear energy plants is scheduled to become one of Europe’s largest construction projects with a construction cost in the order of £18 billion. Hinkley C will generate an estimated 5,600 construction jobs at peak, equating to 25,000 individual job opportunities over the 7 to 10 year construction period. Hinkley Point C will be capable of producing 7% of the UK’s electricity, enough for five million homes.
