Contract Description


M365 Engineer (Inside IR35)

Contract Term: Till 31st March 2024

Contracting Authority: NDA

Location: Remote/Warrington


The Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) is a non-departmental public body created through the Energy Act 2004.


We have 5 offices across the UK, in Cumbria, Dounreay, Harwell, Warrington and London.  We have 17 sites including the first fleet of nuclear power stations, research centres, fuel-related facilities, and Sellafield, which has the largest radioactive inventory and the most complex facilities to decommission.


We are sponsored by the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero (DESNZ) and supported by Dounreay, Magnox, Nuclear Waste Services, Nuclear Transport Solutions and Sellafield. The Scottish government also has a governance role, working closely with DESNZ to ensure its expectations are met.


Our role is strategic: we establish the overall approach, allocate budgets, set targets and monitor progress.

  • Implementing policy on the long-term management of nuclear waste.
