This is a new role, and will be a crucial part of the Energy and Security Group’s senior leadership team. The Group’s work includes ensuring energy security, maximizing indigenous energy supplies, and ensuring the UK has a well-functioning and competitive energy system.
This is a fundamental role within the leadership team. The Nuclear Projects Director will lead BEIS through further intensive negotiations with the developer (Hitachi) and the government of Japan and its agencies to see whether a final agreement on a way forward can be reached.
To be successful in this role you will need to be a strategic thinker and have the best communications and influencing skills. You will need to be an inclusive and empowering leader and be able to build strong relationships within Whitehall and external to Government.
