Specialist, Indigenous Supply Chain and Partnership

Come join us in reshaping the future with AtkinsRéalis. AtkinsRéalis is dedicated in engineering a better future for our planet and its people.

CANDU Energy Inc. is the Canadian Nuclear division of AtkinsRéalis. AtkinsRéalis is dedicated to engineering a better future for our planet and its people. We are stewards of CANDU® technology, a Canadian pressurized heavy-water reactor design, which has been used to generate electric power in 5 countries for more than 70 years. Our experts overcome complex nuclear challenges, supporting engineering net zero initiatives. Our project solutions start at the concept stage, and continue through to design and technology development, including new-build programs, and from asset management through to end-of-life and environmental remediation.

Why Nuclear?

Clean, low-carbon nuclear power has the lasting potential to break the world’s reliance on less sustainable alternatives. And the capacity to generate consistent sources of baseline power, which intermittent renewable sources can’t.

CANDU technology is designed, manufactured, and serviced in Canada by more than 250 companies and over 76,000 jobs. AtkinsRéalis relies on a specialized workforce that’s growing to serve critical sectors across Canada and export to the world.

Being part of and working in the nuclear industry means that you will be part of a local and global solution to climate-change, while contributing to the safety and sustainability to people, animals, environment, and the world.

Did you also know that our reactor is designed with benefits beyond just producing clean energy; it can also produce crucial medical isotopes essential for cancer treatments and hydrogen elements.

Being part of and working in the nuclear industry means that you will be part of a local and global solution to climate-change, while contributing to the safety and sustainability to people, animals, environment, and the world. Working as a document controller, you will gain new skills that are transferable, and be an integral person to a team that highly values consistency, quality, and teamwork.
