Who We Are

AWE has a unique and exciting mission – to keep the UK safe and secure.  We do this through developing, manufacturing and maintaining the warheads for the UK’s nuclear deterrent, as well as providing our unique skills and expertise to support the UK’s counter terrorism and nuclear threat reduction activities. 

We are a centre of scientific, engineering, and technological excellence, with some of the most advanced research, design, and production facilities in the world.

As the UK seeks to replace and update its nuclear deterrent, we need to make sure our facilities and technologies are fit for purpose.  So we are about to embark on one of the UK’s largest infrastructure projects across our 1,000-acre site to safeguard our mission for the long-term future.

We are extremely proud of what we do.  And there has never been a more exciting time to join our mission.

But you don’t have to be a scientist or engineer to work for us – the opportunities are vast and varied. 

Come and join us

We are actively recruiting into diverse roles across all areas of the business, from science and engineering, to project management, supply chain, HR and corporate functions and many more.
