This is an on-site role, based at Faslane.

About the Project:
HMNB Clyde is undergoing a near £2 billion upgrade as part of the ~£30 billion Dreadnought Submarine Programme, delivering the UK’s future at-sea nuclear defence arsenal as a replacement to the current Vanguard Submarine Trident Nuclear Programme.

Due to the nature of the project, you will ideally already hold current Security Clearance (SC Clearance) or be able to meet the requirements for obtaining it (British citizen, no overseas travel for 6 months+ in the last 5 years).
