About AWE

Do you want to be part of something extraordinary? Something that not only gives you the opportunity to develop and grow your career, but offers excitement, challenge and intrigue at the same time as making a difference to keeping our country, and everyone in it, safe?

That’s what the proud people of AWE have been doing for more than 70 years. Our role in nuclear defence and what we do to support the UK’s nuclear deterrent, is vital in defending our country from the most extreme threats and to keeping the peace. From developing the warheads for the nuclear deterrent, to providing counter-terrorism and nuclear threat reduction solutions, the work we do is of global importance. If you want to work in a unique and innovative environment, then AWE is the perfect place for you.
