Our Inspectors regulate the nuclear industry.

But they can’t do it without you.

The challenge

Often in the public eye, the Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR) is a growing, rapidly-evolving public corporation. Essentially, we’re responsible for shaping and delivering the regulation of nuclear safety and security across the UK. As Divisional Delivery Support, you’ll deal with administration in our Cheltenham office – and help our Nuclear Safety Inspectors to perform a unique and hugely important role.


£19,856 - £22,281 + benefits

The role

Our Inspectors make sure that the nuclear industry meets strict safety standards, keeping the UK safe. To do their job, they need efficient admin support every day. As part of Divisional Delivery Support (DDS), you’ll have a varied role, where you’ll assist over 80 Inspectors within a small team. You’ll be dealing with correspondence, answering calls and queries, organising meetings and preparing papers and briefing packs. Reception duties are also part of the role, so you’ll be welcoming visitors too.

The person

Although we’ll provide full training when you join – and throughout your ONR career – we’ll expect you to bring plenty of drive and an organised approach. It’s important you’ve got the energy and flexibility to use your initiative and switch quickly between tasks. And as you’ll be working closely with colleagues at all levels, you must be good with people and great within a team. We’re also looking for at least five GCSEs (or equivalent) including A-C grade English Language. If you’re professional and IT-literate, we’d like to hear from you.  

The rewards

We offer competitive salaries at the ONR, with this role attracting a salary of £19,856 - £22,281. 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.

About us

ONR is a Public Corporation with a Mission to ensure the highest standards of safety and security across all of the UK’s licensed nuclear sites. Our staff are drawn from a wider 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.
