What if you could work with remarkable people on extraordinary things? What if the end result was something a little bit special? What if your role was mission critical?

For nearly 70 years, AWE has been at the forefront of nuclear weapons research and development. We have a critical mission: to provide the warheads for the UK’s ultimate deterrent - Trident.

  • Experience in managing projects from concept design through to successful implementation, requiring knowledge of design and construction processes.
  • Demonstrated experience in capital construction with an understanding of CDM (Construction Design Management) regulations and NEC contract management.
  • Experience to manage projects through the APM and / or RIBA lifecycle and the associated governance, including stage gate approvals.
