The three secondments across your two-year programme will give you an unrivalled experience of the nuclear sector. Your first secondment will be with your sponsoring organisation, developing an understanding of your discipline, your role within the organisation, the opportunities and challenges facing your sponsor and how these will inform the next step in your career at the end of your two-year programme.
