John Vickerman, Chief People Officer, commented:

Magnox is an exciting place to be. We need new talent, people who are tuned into our values on diversity and inclusion, who care about the environment and the generations yet to come. This challenge is suited to apprentices who want to succeed and be part of a team that continues to develop, innovate and even exceed our greatest achievements.
It’s vital that we attract apprentices that can bring fresh ideas into our rapidly expanding business and have a great time earning as they learn in our inclusive and friendly workplaces.
We currently employ over 2,300 highly skilled people who all contribute to safely decommissioning 12 first generation nuclear sites.
Apprentices are a crucial part of that mix, whether they are school leavers, returning to work after a break or looking for a different career direction.

The range of opportunities available will see apprentices based at our Magnox sites across the UK and at our Bristol business hub, where a hybrid blend of home and workplace working will be supported.


This recruitment campaign aims to attract our workforce of the future on a national and regional level through a series of virtual events where people can meet us, learn about we do, hear first-hand from our apprentices, understand the application process and get all their questions answered.


The national event is being held between 5.00 – 6.00pm on 8 February during National Apprenticeship Week. You can book your place using this link.


Regional events are being held:

  1. 5.00 – 6.00 pm on 16 February for opportunities at our sites in England

  2. 5.00 – 6.00 pm on 2 March for opportunities at our sites in Wales

  3. 5.00 – 6.00 pm on 9 March for opportunities at our sites in Scotland

You can book your place at these events using this link.


The vacancies are currently being advertised on the Energus website and via Indeed and Job Centre Plus.

This includes, but is not limited to, Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic candidates, candidates with disabilities and female candidates. Our recruitment process is fair, transparent and based on merit.
