React Engineering, based in West Cumbria is a respected engineering consultancy specialising in nuclear clean-up. We work with all the major contractors in the nuclear industry across the UK and we employ staff with drive, great communication skills and a knack for problem solving.

What makes a React consultant?

Decommissioning challenges are unique and complex. Each problem has an individual set of conditions and interfaces that require fresh thinking, underpinned with knowledge and experience, applied with a sound methodical approach in order to deliver success. Since 1994, we have been providing strategic, engineering and project management consultancy services to a wide range of nuclear decommissioning and waste management projects.

  • Develop and manage customer relationships to generate new opportunities and repeat business.
  • Engage with the wider React team to ensure commercial and technical information and knowledge is shared within the company.
