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.

​“I wanted a job that I could throw myself into - where the more I put in, the more I got out of it. In recruitment, provided the company creates the environment, your development is heavily within your own control. There is significant satisfaction in supporting projects and aiding clients to achieve their key milestones. I also enjoy building long-term business relationships with our clients. Initially I believed that I would have to have an outgoing extroverted personality to be a good recruiter. Whilst this can sometimes be beneficial, I have found that there is a place in the industry for all personality types.”
