UK Atomic Energy

UK Atomic Energy Authority

The UK Atomic Energy Authority is a UK government research organisation responsible for the development of nuclear fusion power. It is an executive non-departmental public body of the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.


UKAEA supports the Government to achieve its EDI ambitions and is committed to contributing, locally, nationally, and globally, towards social justice by helping addressing inequalities where they exist and to improving performance.




Whilst UKAEA has a very diverse workforce comprising over 50 different nationalities, we recognise that we still have a culture which is not fully inclusive, and we must do more to ensure everyone can realise their potential. Our Being Inclusive strategy encapsulates our vision - to be an employer of choice that attracts, retains and develops people to their full capability because our reputation for valuing and celebrating all forms of diversity is widely acknowledged. It is also why I have insisted that every UKAEA employee has a personal EDI objective to highlight the importance of diversity, equity, equality and inclusion and support our strategic approach and action plan to identify and address any disparities in opportunities, if, where and when they occur.
