The Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) is a non-departmental public body created to clean up the UK’s earliest nuclear safety sites safely, securely and cost-effectively, with care for people and the environment.

The work to clean up the UK’s nuclear legacy is the largest, most important environmental restoration project in Europe.

There are around 16,000 people who help deliver NDA’s mission and they make up one of the most advanced nuclear workforces in the world.  One NDA plans to capitalise on this wealth of experience and talent, harnessing the opportunities that come from the scale and breadth of the group.

The Role

As part of the NDA’s newly established business case writing team this role together with the Lead Business Case Writer will form the NDA’s subject matter experts in business case development, providing advice, guidance and a range of writing services to the NDA group.

The role will be instrumental in delivering process improvements and driving best practice business cases through learning from experience reviews across the NDA group.

  • Ensure that developed business cases comply with organisational and HMT Green Book requirements aligned to the NDA scheme of delegated authority
  • Develop and maintain positive relationships within the team and with key enabling functions to ensure business case content and development processes align with group initiatives/requirements (financial models, business critical models, optimism bias, etc.)
  • Support the establishment of a new business case writing capability within both NDA corporate centre and across the wider NDA group (virtual team)
  • Provide advice, guidance and support on the development of business cases to the NDA corporate centre and the wider group
  • Present and facilitate structured workshops to train /educate the NDA group on business case requirements and the development processes
  • Identify, develop and embed best practice into business case writing across the NDA group using lessons learned from similar projects and sharing good practice
  • Review and feedback on business cases produced by the wider NDA group to drive quality improvements
  • Working within the NDA Sanction Team contribute to the smooth running of the NDA sanction process across the NDA group (One NDA)
