Vacancy for Next Gen Nuclear Industry Council in UK


Deadline: 8 May 2020


The Nuclear Industry Council (NIC) is looking for UK-based early to mid-career professionals from across the nuclear industry, its supply chain and other interested parties to sit on a newly established Next Generation NIC.

The Nuclear Industry Council (NIC) is a joint-forum between the UK nuclear industry and Government, whose primary role is to provide strategic leadership to the nuclear industry. The NIC developed the Nuclear Sector Deal, which was launched on 28 June 2018 as part of the UK Government’s modern Industrial Strategy. The council is now responsible for overseeing the delivery of the Nuclear Sector Deal.

The NIC is comprised of senior representatives from across industry and government. Read about the membership and Terms of Reference on the Government website.


A Next Generation Nuclear Industry Council (Next Gen NIC) is being established to act as a shadow board to the NIC comprising of ten professionals, including representation from Government and the NIA. The Next Gen NIC is being set up to bring new ideas and thoughts into the long-term future of nuclear and to drive the strategic growth of our sector. This is a fantastic opportunity to apply to be part of the Next Gen NIC and to help shape the future of the industry, play a leading role in strategic decision making and to develop both personally and professionally.

The Next Gen Nuclear Industry Council will support the NIC in tackling long-term challenges facing the industry and facilitating cooperation between industry and Government.

The activities of the Next Gen NIC will fall into two key strands:

  • follow the strategic agenda of the NIC and provide feedback, for example reviewing of the NIC papers
  • drive its own initiatives such as developing a vision of a future energy network aligned to NetZero, and the role nuclear should play

Why do we need it?

  1. To create a sustainable future for the nuclear industry
  2. To deliver diversity of thought
  3. To address critical issues
  4. To represent a changing focus & cultural shift in areas such as:
  • climate emergency
  • Net Zero
  • sustainability
  • economic development
  • digitisation
  • social media
