The world needs a clean and reliable source of base-load energy, which is what this company is trying to achieve. Their route to fusion power is unique. They're taking established science and building on it by pioneering the use of spherical tokamaks in conjunction with high temperature superconductors (HTS).

Fusion - the energy source that powers the Sun - is globally accepted as the best way to generate plentiful, safe, secure and clean energy. The tokamak is the most heavily researched and best understood of all the different paths to fusion.

Yet there are complex engineering challenges that need to be overcome for demonstration and commercialisation of this technology. Their team of world-class fusion scientists and magnet engineers are tackling these challenges, to develop efficient and affordable fusion power.

This unique approach is centred on rapid innovation using the latest materials and technology - but building on decades of scientific research and experience. This strategy gives them - and the world - a faster way to fusion.

The Role:

You will closely support the CFO in relation to all investor relations, marketing and related fundraising activity. This will involve extensive interface with existing and prospective investors, other members of management and staff, as well as external legal, PR and financial advisers. You will also work closely in support of the head of PR/Communications, to ensure that investor and public relations are fully co-ordinated, integrated and mutually supportive.
