Committee on Radioactive Waste Management – Members
Permanent - £300 per day
Ref Code: ADV352621NSC7
About the Committee
The Committee on Radioactive Waste Management (CoRWM) provides independent scrutiny and advice to the UK Government and Devolved Administrations on the long-term management of radioactive waste. Its priority task is to provide independent scrutiny of the UK Government’s and Nuclear Decommissioning Authority’s programme to deliver geological disposal, together with interim storage, for higher activity waste. A long-term solution to the management of this waste is crucial in supporting the UK Government’s policy for new nuclear power stations.
CoRWM plays an essential and high profile role in demonstrating the Government’s commitment to transparency and use of evidence in guiding radioactive waste policy. In doing so it helps to create greater public understanding and trust. This is vital to the UK Government’s delivery of a highly-engineered geological disposal facility, compliant with stringent regulatory requirements, using the novel and challenging approach of voluntarianism and partnership working with local communities. It is also vital to the ongoing development and implementation of safe, secure, environmentally sound and publicly acceptable radioactive waste management programmes across the UK.
About the role of members
We are currently looking for new members from late 2012, as part of a cycle of appointments. It is expected that members will spend about one day per week on CoRWM business.
Committee members work, under the Chair’s supervision, to deliver CoRWM’s agreed, rolling programme of scrutiny and advice to Government. This involves participating in sub-groups on specific issues of interest, drafting papers, and representing CoRWM at meetings with organisations that contribute to the Committee’s work, the public, a wide range of stakeholders and the media.
You will be able to build good working relationships and achieve consensus within a multi-disciplinary team, working co-operatively to achieve programme outcomes. Good communication and analytical skills will be vital. You will also be able to demonstrate the particular skills and experience that we are seeking to bring into the Committee in this appointment round.
The closing date is 12 noon on Monday 6th August 2012 and interviews are expected to be held in September 2012.
