Contract Description



Finance Business AnalystInside IR35

Contract Term: 6 months (possibility of extension)

Contracting Authority: Radioactive Waste Management (RWM)

Location: Hybrid (largely home working with occasional travel to Harwell, Didcot)

Nuclear Waste Services brings together the UK’s leading nuclear waste management capabilities.

We have integrated the expertise of Low Level Waste Repository (LLWR), Radioactive Waste Management (RWM), and the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) group’s Integrated Waste Management Programme (IWMP). This creates an organisation focused on the management of the UK’s nuclear waste, safely and securely for generations to come.

We are part of the NDA group, which is undertaking the biggest clean-up project in Europe over many decades. Nuclear Waste Services is integral to this environmental clean-up mission, as we work to provide permanent answers to our country’s nuclear waste. The UK has been producing and managing radioactive waste on an industrial scale since the 1940s. However, today’s approach and capabilities for waste management need to adapt to keep pace with NDA’s decommissioning ambitions. This includes its commitment to recycle 50% of waste from decommissioning and reduce secondary wastes by around 70% by 2030.

We are recruiting a Finance Business Analyst to join RWM initially for 6 months. Reporting into the Finance Improvement Project Manager, you will play a pivotal role in developing and delivering capital programme financial control improvements within Nuclear Waste Services.

  • Assisting in the development of project orientated reporting, both from a management and control perspective.
  • Assisting in the drive towards a multi-year financial horizon as part of the company wide initiative to move towards whole life project cost reporting.
