Capability Manager - Separation Science & Special Nuclear Materials

Contract type:

Salary: Starting at £61,887 Pay Band 3 Zone B (Upper)

Closing Date: 2020-07-21

Location: Sellafield, Cumbria

The role of Capability Manager is a key management role within NNL and it requires an experienced individual to effectively manage a team, which in this instance specialises in glovebox operations and chemical processing and separation alongside physical characterisation and inspection of nuclear materials and containers providing a service for a wide range of customers. A Capability Manager must effectively manage resources and deploy capability within the team to effectively deliver work for NNL’s customers.

 

Job Context & Challenges:

The role of a Capability Manager is a complex one and requires an ability to balance several high importance areas in parallel while maintaining a focus on the ongoing high-quality delivery to the satisfaction of NNLs customers. The resourcing of key singleton resources is particularly challenging and one which requires delicate stakeholder management with PMA (projects), the Account Directors as well as the customers themselves.

Ensuring a balance of workload across the team – and ensuring that the correct capabilities and skills are developed and nurtured within the team to meet not only the current customer’s needs, but also the needs of future customers’ demands is an important aspect of the role.

Focussing on the progression and development of individuals within the team is also a key focus for any Capability Manager – aligning that to the succession challenges specific to a given team/capability area.
