The Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) is a non-departmental public body created through the Energy Act 2004.
We employ over 200 staff and have offices in Cumbria, Caithness, Cheshire, London and Oxfordshire. We own 17 sites across England, Wales and Scotland, some dating back to the 1940s, plus the associated liabilities and assets.
We report to the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS); for some aspects of our work in Scotland, we are responsible to Scottish ministers. We aim to deliver safe, sustainable and publicly acceptable solutions to the challenge of nuclear clean-up and waste management.
Our mission is to deliver on these responsibilities whilst never compromising on safety or security, taking full account of social and environmental responsibilities, seeking value for money for the taxpayer and actively engaging with stakeholders. This mission is delivered through the NDA’s 12 operating companies.
We now have an exciting opportunity for a Group Chief Compliance & Ethics Officer (GCCO). This newly created role will report to the Group General Counsel and Company Secretary.
Working closely with the NDA’s Internal Audit and Legal functions the GCCO will forge strong partnerships with the Group’s business leaders. The GCCO will be responsible for ensuring that compliance reporting, advice and support is delivered to the NDA in a timely and appropriate manner. They will establish and then chair a new Compliance and Ethics Committee and deliver the newly refreshed Compliance Policy. The GCCO will also oversee the vital Whistleblowing function, ensuring it is confidential, effective and accessible to all employees.
You will bring a track record of success in the Ethics & Compliance fields in a regulated environment. In addition to skills and experience relevant to the role, candidates will need to demonstrate a successful senior leadership track record, experience of continuous improvement, team management and development, and outstanding interpersonal and stakeholder engagement skills.
