Sellafield is one of the largest and most complex nuclear sites in the world and home to some of the UK’s most technically challenging and complex major projects. With an annual spend of £2.0 billion and 10,000 employees, it represents one of the largest public sector funded programmes and makes up 60% of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority’s (NDA) Estate.
Sellafield Ltd is the Site Licence Company and a subsidiary of the NDA, governed by its own Board, consisting of a Chair appointed by the NDA and a mix of non-executive and executive members. The Chair is accountable to the CEO of the NDA and his/her role is to ensure that the Board provides clear direction and effective oversight to the organisation during a period of significant transition, as its primary mission changes from reprocessing to decommissioning over the next 5-6 years.
Candidates will bring board-level experience with strong leadership and strategic skills and a proven ability to influence and work with a wide variety of stakeholders, including the local community where the organisation is the mainstay of the economy. Experience in both the procurement and management of major contracts is highly desirable, for example, major infrastructure programmes in rail, construction, energy, nuclear, or oil and gas, along with skills in leading change and transformation across highly complex and high hazard environments.
