Working at AWE

To work at AWE is to play a valuable part in keeping our country safe and secure.

If you’re looking for a role with excitement, intrigue and something that really makes a difference then now is the time to join AWE. We are at the start of a once in a generation – possibly two generations – programme to design and produce a replacement warhead for the UK’s continuous at sea deterrent. We will do this while continuing to deliver the Trident programme as well as managing ambitious state-of-the-art capital and construction projects – some of which have never been done before.

We are currently recruiting right across the business: from technical roles in engineering, science, manufacturing and industrial work to business roles in areas such as IT, project management/ controls, commercial, human resources and facilities management. We also have our Evolve graduate programme, or you may be interested in an apprenticeship with our award-winning Skills Academy.

What we do is vital to national nuclear security. Keeping our nation, everyone, our environment and everything around us safe and secure is a top priority for us. So, as you would expect, that brings with it a high level of safety and security that you will see across our sites and in how everyone who works here operates.

If you’d like to join our team, to work here you’ll need to be a British National and normally to have resided in the UK for the past five years for Security Clearance (SC) roles and ten years for Developed Vetting (DV) roles. If you have had periods when you lived outside of the UK for less than a year during the last five years or less than two years during the last ten years, we may still be able to consider you, so please do apply. We may consider dual nationality for certain roles.
