Are you someone who thinks differently, acts smart, finds new ways to approach things and wants to have some fun along the way? Then we might just have the role for you. As our Nuclear & Power Security Manager you’ll have an enthusiasm for teamwork and collaboration, be a natural connector and provide support and guidance in our approach to security.

Your Purpose:

You’ll collaborate with our market leads, technical experts, consultants, and leaders across our business, as well as external partners, suppliers, and our clients.  You’ll be proactive in your approach to security and will be future thinking to ensure our business maintains its world-class approach to security, not just in the here and now but also for our future aspirations too.

Are you the type of person who just can’t help but roll your sleeves up and get things done? If your natural style is to create momentum and enthusiasm to deliver, then we know you’ll enjoy the opportunities that we’re pursuing.

It’s quite simple, our plans for growth encompass some of the most amazingly interesting things. So, it’s never been more of an exciting time to be part of the Atkins Nuclear & Power business.  We’re embarking on a brilliant five-year transformational growth plan.  A plan that will see our business double in size through bidding, winning, and delivering projects of a scale and complexity that provides the most amazing opportunities for everyone involved.

Security is at the heart of this vision as a key enabler.  We have an established security community who are awesome at what they do so there’s a ready-made support network to work with and alongside you to embed the smartest thinking for the best of our business.

What you’ll bring:

We could be all formal (and that bit is located in the role description below) and explain that you’ll have full accountability for security and we expect you to have a demonstratable track record in the leadership of security communities and all that good stuff (which is true).  But what’s the equally important value for you to succeed?  It’s your enthusiasm.  You’ll like approaching things in new and innovative ways, you love working and connecting with people and of course, having the best time along the way.

If this sounds like you, then we’d love to hear from you, so please submit a CV and a paragraph or two to share what inspires you about this role and how you might apply your natural strengths within it.
