Volunteering Opportunities

The Nuclear Institute has a proud tradition of active and engaged volunteers donating their time and energy to carrying out tasks that help the Institute meet its core objectives.

Many of these roles involve direct contact with other members and even the public via branch and community activities as well as outreach events and STEM engagement. Our members are also the repository of a vast range of nuclear knowledge and experience which is fundamental to delivering local events, seminars, schools, university and other outreach activities as practical or digital resources.

The key benefits to volunteers are:

  • Gaining experience in business-related settings and activities
  • The chance to develop business and leadership skills
  • The satisfaction of contributing to the development of the profession and your fellow professionals by ‘giving something back’
  • Activities that contribute to your own continuing professional development
  • Developing your own network of professionals within the industry but outside of your own organisation.

If your organisation works in multiple branch areas, you can contact NI HQ or YGN Company Catalysts to find out how best your employees can engage and get involved.
