About NI Cumbria

About Us

The NI Cumbria Branch carry out a range of activities including public lecture programmes, site visits and education activities (including a bursary scheme for local students going to university). We also pride ourselves on our excellent annual dinner which is always well attended and a highlight on the local calendar.

The branch is run by a group of volunteers who form the Branch Committee and is made up NI members in the local area. Since Cumbria is currently a hotspot for jobs in the nuclear sector, we are one the largest NI branches. The branch is supported by the Nuclear Institute head office, based in London, and the Board of Trustees.

Where we came from

The NI Cumbria Branch was established as a regional branch in January 2005 superseding the former Nuclear Institute (BNES) Special Interest Group (SIG) on Waste Management and Decommissioning. The SIG was founded as a result of a survey of membership of Nuclear Institute (BNES) in 1994 which showed that a very high proportion of members in the area identified Decommissioning as a topic of interest. However, with the formation of a regional branch, we have extended the scope to represent the wider interests in nuclear energy in the Cumbria region.

Getting involved

We would love to see you at some of our events during the year. These are a great way to keep up to date with developments in the industry and get to know  and for you to get more involved with us through volunteering opportunities.

Volunteering can be a great asset to your career in the industry, in giving you opportunities to develop your personal and professional skills and experience, and socialising with other like-minded people.

You could help us at exhibitions and events, or help with publicity and sponsorship. The annual NI Cumbria events programme includes seminars and lectures, speaking competitions and our prestigious annual dinner, all of which provide a range of opportunities for getting involved.

Our Branch Committee is also made up of volunteers who have given extra time to running the branch and work alongside the Nuclear Institute’s head office to deliver the NI’s aims and objectives.
