In Scope of IR35

Job Purpose:
The Commercial Manager will be the primary point of commercial contact on the contract(s) assigned to them and will be required to work closely and pro-actively with the other stakeholders at all levels and across all the teams within HPC to ensure that the requirements of the individual contracts and their impact upon the overall HPC Project are successfully delivered.

Contextual Information:
The layout of nuclear power plants comprises two major parts: The nuclear island and the conventional (turbine) island. The nuclear island is the heart of the nuclear power plant. On the other hand, the conventional (turbine) island houses the key component which extracts thermal energy from pressurised steam and converts it into electrical energy. This device is called the turbine generator. The turbine generator is in the turbine building and contains most of the main components of the thermodynamic cycle.

Since the conventional power plants (eg fossil-fuel power plants) use very similar technology to convert thermal energy into electrical energy, this part of nuclear power plant is called "conventional island". In comparison to conventional power plants the conventional island at nuclear power plants must fulfil the significantly stricter specification on quality assurance and control that applies to even conventional parts of the nuclear power plant due to the impact they may have on the nuclear systems.
