Astute's Nuclear Division provides expert recruitment solutions to the nuclear industry.

The Astute full project life-cycle recruitment

Nuclear energy is key to the UK achieving its clean, low carbon energy goals, helping to tackle the growing threat of global warming. As part of a diverse energy mix, including renewable technologies, nuclear generated energy can provide safe, reliable, and secure power to meet our future needs.

The civil nuclear industry provides over 63,000 jobs including apprenticeships and graduate schemes. This number is set to increase significantly in the wake of the new generation of nuclear power plants coming into operation.

The expert consultants operating within our Nuclear Division have partnered with the UK's leading employers, working hard to bridge the skills gap created by such a high increase in demand in a specialist market place.

As members of the Nuclear Industry Association, we are committed to supporting member and non-member companies alike in their shared mission to achieve the UK’s nuclear ambitions.​​
