Radiation Protection Advisor
Established in 2001, Aberdeen Radiation Protection Services (ARPS) provides comprehensive and cost-effective radiation protection services to a wide range of internationally operating industrial and non-industrial companies.
Led by Managing Director, Matt Brodie, the company was integrated into the Lucion Group in December 2021. You can read more about the integration here.
When you join the Lucion Group you join more than just another set of work colleagues. We are more a like-minded community with a shared vision. That vision is simple. We are committed to protecting people and the planet.
We know that what we do really does have a direct impact and it really can make a difference. It means there is no compromise in our mission. We work hard every day to be the best at what we do. We trust each other to make the right decisions for our clients, our colleagues and ultimately for our company.
When you come to work with us you soon realise how important our role is in keeping people safe and the environment protected. No two days are the same. You will have to think on your feet, and you will have to be flexible. But in all honesty, we wouldn't have it any other way.
In return you will have the backing and support of colleagues who will always help each other, not just some days, but every day. That is the essence of our teams and our teamwork. We know that people are at their best when they are in a positive working environment. Where they are encouraged to use their skills and where they have the opportunity to progress and become fulfilled.
The values and beliefs we hold are embedded into everything we do. We have a clear purpose and a shared set of values. We would love you to help shape them in the future.
We provide comprehensive radiation protection services to a wide range of industrial and commercial companies. Our key focus is the provision of radiation protection advice to the energy sector and associated service companies, including radiography, well logging and NORM decontamination contractors. However, we also provide similar services to the food and drink industry, the transport sector, vets, local government, and the environmental regulator in Scotland.
As such, this role will provide an opportunity to work with a diverse range of clients in challenging environments. The work is predominantly office-based, with some need for travel, and we are willing to consider a variety of options, including blended working from home and one of our offices in England. Working abroad will also be an option, for those interested.
The post offers excellent opportunities to work on a wide variety of projects. You’ll share new ideas between clients which satisfy the most stringent Quality, Health, Safety, and Environmental standards to support our purpose, protecting people and planet. We also provide support and training to those keen to further develop their careers through additional professional development qualifications, such as RWA and/or DGSA certification.
