Nuclear Sector Role Profiles
The Nuclear Standards Advisory Group has developed Role Profiles for selected priority roles in the nuclear sector, to update and replace the former set of Job Contexts.
Each Role Profile is intended to be a useful industry benchmark for generic roles commonly seen in the sector. They sit alongside the individual role descriptions that companies will have for their own staff to ensure suitably qualified and experienced personnel (SQEP) in their workforce, supporting a systematic approach to training and skills development.
Each Role Profile contains information on the following areas relating to roles at various levels:
- Occupational profile
- Professional registration
Nuclear sector employers use these when developing or updating job descriptions, recruitment advertisements, competence frameworks and training plans. They also contributed to the Nuclear Career Pathways platform (accessible through the menu at the top of this page), and can be useful to individuals reviewing their own skills and career development.
Role Profiles developed:
|Industrial Safety||Cyber Security|
|Nuclear Safety Case Preparation||Decommissioning|
|Safety Case Author||Nuclear Decommissioning Operative|
|Safety Case Officer / Manager||Nuclear Decommissioning Team Leader|
|Nuclear Decommissioning Engineer|
|Health Physics||Laboratory Operations|
|Health Physics Monitor||Laboratory Technician|
|Radiation Protection Team Leader||Research & Development Technician|
|Health Physicist||Analytical Technician|
|Waste Management||Nuclear Maintenance|
|Waste Management Operative||Nuclear Maintenance Technician|
|Waste Management Operations Team Leader||Nuclear Maintenance Fitter|
|Waste Management Operations Manager||Nuclear Maintenance Team Leader|
|Waste Management Strategy & Tech Services Manager||Nuclear Maintenance Project Engineer|
|Waste Manager||Nuclear Maintenance Senior Engineer|
Further occupational areas will be added to the list above as directed by the Standards Advisory Group.
The roles selected are those determined to be used regularly in the nuclear sector, being either nuclear-specific or of particular current priority for skills requirements. To avoid duplication, the sector has decided not to concentrate on more generic roles where they are already covered by similar resources elsewhere.
For Engineering Construction roles commonly found in the sector, the Engineering Construction Industry Training Board has a career pathways site at:
For Construction roles, especially relevant to nuclear new build activity, the Construction Industry Training Board provides related information at:
