Accountant needed for nuclear clean-up

The Nuclear Decommissioning
is on the lookout for a chief accountant to help with the
cost-effective clean-up of Britain’s defunct nuclear fission power plants.

Based in West Cumbria, the NDA wants an accountant capable of handling the
body’s £2.8bn spend and ensuring the appropriate reporting systems are in place
to account for it. IFRS experience is essential.

The NDA is responsible for sites such as Sellafield, Magnox and Dounreay and
is tasked with delivering savings in the decommissioning of such site and where
possible accelerating the process.

It aims to do this by introducing innovation and world class contractor
expertise through a series of competitions similar to the model that has been
used in the US.

In 2006 is estimated that the cost of cleaning up Britain’s nuclear legacy
would be £72bn over 100 years.
