Interested in working on an Outage?

Temporary roles on outages will provide a wide range of opportunities to work as part of a busy project team in an industrial environment.

Support roles can vary from Domestic and Industrial Operatives to Chefs and Food Service assistants.

Whilst working as part of the outage team you’ll receive:

  • Great rates of pay

  • Nuclear experience

  • Security clearance to help support future job applications

  • Training and certifications to add to your CV

Engagement on an outage is always subject to a pre-employment Drug & Alcohol test (D&A) and Counter Terrorism Check (CTC) clearance.

After 22 year service in the RAF, I had reservations about working in a civvy street. What I didn’t realise was that the skill sets developed in the mob, are more than transferable and greatly valued, as the engrained discipline and work ethos the Armed Forces foster is fully welcomed by any would be employer.

After originally going down the recruitment route, I was directly employed with NRL 11 years as the Group HSE&Q Manager. This is the nearest I have come to the service comradery since leaving the mob. NRL’s values lend themselves, to the core, of those embedded by the forces. The professionalism of all the staff is second to none as they ensure the values set are continually applied in promoting individual aspirations, they work as team with drive and vigor making individuals valued and invested in.
