Experiment at H3AT facility

By 2050, the planet could be using twice as much electricity compared to today, and we are always on the look out for talented individuals who want to help make a difference to the world’s energy crisis, working in a range of disciplines contributing to the development of fusion.

If you are seeking to work in a collaborative, world leading and uniquely international organisation, we are keen to hear from you!

Fusion, the process that powers the Sun and stars, is one of the most promising options for generating the cleaner, low-carbon energy that our world badly needs. UKAEA is at the forefront of realising energy from fusion, working with industry and research partners to deliver the ground-breaking developments that will bring fusion electricity to the grid.

Our mission is to lead the delivery of sustainable fusion energy and maximise scientific and economic impact, which we cannot do without people like you. As we work towards our mission and goals, UKAEA has devised values that capture the spirit of how we work. These values include being: Innovative, Committed, Trusted and Collaborative.

Engineers meeting at RACE

Many of the skills and knowledge that our roles require, do not have to be specifically from the nuclear or fusion industry. As part of our Being Inclusive strategy, we recognise the value of bringing skills from multiple industries.
