Science Graduate of the Year

The Nuclear Skills Awards recognise and celebrate exceptional graduates employed in the nuclear sector.  The aim is to have award winners who are role models to inspire others to undertake a career in the nuclear industry.

Nuclear employers are asked to select just one of their graduates for nomination.  Nominees do not need to be on a company graduate scheme. This award is open to all graduates who have graduated in the last two years and are employed in the nuclear sector.
If you have multiple sites you are welcome to enter one graduate from each site.
