That is the reality at AWE!

Technical Authors

Location: Reading / Basingstoke Area

Salary: £26,500 - £45,000 (depending on your suitability and level of experience)

Supporting the UK's Continuous At Sea Deterrence programme and national nuclear security are at the heart of what we do therefore working with us is both exciting and challenging - in fact it's everything you would expect from a company that supports national security.

AWE (one of the best 25 big companies to work for in the UK) offers an attractive array of benefits which include:

  • Market leading contributory pension scheme

  • Generous holiday entitlement (270 hours a year plus every other Friday off)

  • Flexible working hours

  • Salary sacrifice scheme

  • Consideration for either full time or part time hours. Just let us know on your application if you wish to work part time

  • Relocation package available (terms and conditions apply)

We are looking to recruit a number of candidates with varying levels of knowledge and experience who are looking to develop their career. Successful candidates will be deployed throughout the business producing core product documentation which will include, but is not limited to the design, assembly, movement, maintenance and disassembly of the UK's nuclear deterrent.

To be successful in these roles, we will require you to have the following skills:

  • A background in the generation of technical documentation

  • Engineering experience in an industrial environment or a knowledge of manufacturing/assembly processes

Dependent on entry level, candidates will either have a level 3 qualification (ONC/OND), a recognised apprenticeship or a level 4/5 qualification (HNC/HND/Degree) in a relevant discipline.

As you would expect for such a role, the highest security clearance is required. You must be willing and able to obtain and maintain the necessary clearance which may take some time.
