We also want to be able to see that you can communicate effectively and demonstrate this whilst working within an experienced team. We recognise what graduates can offer to an organisation and appreciate the number of skills they possess.
Why Work for NESC?
Due to the nature of work at NESC, the organisation works alongside large international engineering corporations, including Tier 1 nuclear clients. Working with a number of large organisations in a Defence and Civil Nuclear setting will make the job stimulating and satisfying as you will be working on a variety of projects.
With NESC, you will be supported by our expert engineers from the moment you join us, all the way through your career. You will be encouraged to express your ideas and make your own decisions in a team of highly experienced engineers, allowing for the continued development of your communication, problem-solving and teamwork skills.
