The Australian Radioactive Waste Agency (ARWA) has started a search for its first Chief Executive Officer. ARWA is the new Commonwealth agency overseeing the management of Australia’s radioactive waste.

The CEO will be responsible for:

  • overall governance and performance
  • project management, policy leadership and the strategic direction of the agency
  • the siting, construction and operation of the National Radioactive Waste Management Facility (NRWMF)

The NRWMF will dispose of Australia’s legacy and future low-level radioactive waste, and temporarily store our  intermediate-level waste.

The vast majority of Australia’s radioactive waste stream comes from nuclear medicine production. On average, two in three Australians will benefit from nuclear medicine during their lifetime.

ARWA has engaged the recruitment firm Odgers Berndstson to lead the search for suitable candidates for the role.
