The Role

Radioactive Waste Management (RWM) is the wholly owned subsidiary of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, charged by Government with developing a geological disposal facility (GDF) for higher activity radioactive waste in the UK. A GDF is a series of vaults and tunnels deep underground where the waste can be put.

Communities will be at the heart of the Siting Process for a GDF and a facility will only be built where both a suitable site and a willing community can be found. The process of siting a GDF is open to any Interested Party – an individual or organisation – in England or in Wales. The Interested Party may come forward to hold initial discussions with RWM about an area of the country that they are proposing and what the process entails. If they do take their discussions forward, they will be asked to make their interest publicly known and enter into a formation of a Working Group.

RWM requires two Community Coordinator task based support roles until mid-March 2020 and very much likely beyond this date to ensure it has the capacity to meet the needs of any Working Groups which are formed over that period.
