We perform a unique and vital role.
Join us, and so will you.
Often in the public eye, the Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR) is an evolving public corporation. Essentially, we’re responsible for shaping and delivering the regulation of nuclear safety and security across the UK. It’s a unique and vital job – and yours will be, too. As our Head of Risk & Assurance, you’ll take on a wide-ranging role that’s crucial to our organisation.
We need to understand the risks faced by every area of ONR, from HR and Finance, to our Regulatory function. You’ll make sure they’re identified and managed, and provide assurances to the Board. Day to day, you’ll be an interface for internal audit delivery, Regulatory Assurance function outputs and our internal assurance deliverables, engaging with senior stakeholders and directing prompt, systematic reporting. A smart, strategic thinker, you’ll deliver complex assurance reviews and provide expert advice and guidance.
At ONR, the challenges we face are constantly evolving. Our approach to risk management must develop too, and you’ll be in charge of leading progress in our fast-paced organisation. Trusted and credible, you’ll influence at the highest levels to improve practice and processes. Leading your skilled team, you’ll balance expectations against corporate risks and make sound decisions.
A senior audit professional, you’ll have the experience to deliver and steer risk management and assurance at ONR. With membership of a recognised audit body, you’ll bring best practice and proven technical expertise. You’ll combine this with excellent people skills, including a gift for leading teams and connecting with all kinds of people. In our highly supportive culture, you’ll thrive on collaboration and working as part of a team.
We offer competitive salaries at the ONR, with this role attracting a salary of £68,572 - £79,070 plus an additional £4,052 London Weighting Allowance if applicable. Furthermore, you’ll be eligible for a substantial Civil Service Pension scheme (including ill-health retirement and lump sum family benefits), and generous holiday entitlement.
ONR is a Public Corporation with a mission to protect society by securing safe nuclear operations. Our staff are drawn from a wide range of professional backgrounds with specialist inspectors to deliver our core business including civil engineering, radiological protection, human factors, chemical engineering, mechanical engineering and nuclear physics. And together they’re involved in everything from assessing safety cases, inspecting nuclear sites, communicating our decisions, training new recruits and representing the UK and ONR within the wider international nuclear community.
