About Magnox North

What is it like to work for Magnox North

Employees well being is supported in various ways. Two of their sites have on-site fitness facilities for use by all staff. A number of the occupational health teams have also engaged physiotherapists and alternative therapists, to offer for example, reiki, Indian head massage and reflexology. This has been extremely well received by employees on sites. Wherever possible people's personal appointments are dealt with through the use of lieu hours or flexible working and they operate a time booking system with all employees responsible for logging their working hours during the week to ensure that the work/life balance is met.

Magnox North has green teams in place at each site, encouraging awareness of green issues and the impact on the environment. For example, there is company-wide support for World Environment Day which provides a focal point in the year and each site's environmental coordinators are tasked to ensure that green issues are highlighted and managed. They are a highly regulated company and the Environment Agency's Nuclear Sector Plan demands that they monitor their impact. They also support the local community and each site has £40,000 available to offer financial assistance for this purpose.

In addition there are generous bonus arrangements in place with employees rewarded for performance on an annual basis. Their reward and recognition policy covers a wide range of initiatives to try to ensure people feel rewarded.
