AWE jobs & History
Atomic Weapons Establishment "AWE"
AWE employs around 4,500 staff and over 2,000 contractors, whose work covers a vast range of disciplines. AWE employ scientists, engineers, technicians, crafts-people and safety specialists, as well as business and administrative experts, many of whom are leaders in their field.
AWE is managed for the Ministry of Defence (MoD) through a contractor-operated arrangement. While our sites and facilities remain in government ownership, their management, day-to-day operations and the maintenance of Britain’s nuclear stockpile is contracted to a private company: AWE Management Limited (AWE ML).
AWE ML is formed of three equal shareholders: British Nuclear Group (BNG), Serco, and Lockheed Martin. BNG and has recently been joined by Jacobs Engineering. All have unrivalled knowledge of the nuclear industry, particularly health and safety and decommissioning issues; Serco has international experience in the management of civilian and military projects and services; and Lockheed Martin has a proven record of successfully delivering complex defence equipment, including nuclear weapon production and stewardship in the United States.
Energy Recruitment Solutions have supply agreements with Jacobs and several other shareholders and 2nd tier contractors. We have a continual demand for staff and contractor personnel with a valid security clearance. Please the jobs section for more detailed requirements.
