Culham (HQ)

CNC Headquarters is located at the UKAEA site near the picturesque semi-rural village of Culham in Oxfordshire. The site is close to the A34 near Abingdon in Oxfordshire and a short drive away from a number of major towns and cities, including Oxford, Swindon and Reading. There are excellent transport links, with the M4 motorway providing access to London to the east in under an hour and Bristol to the west. Culham Railway Station is a five minute walk from the Culham Science Centre and there are regular train links to Culham from London, Didcot, Oxford and South Wales. This also provides quick access to a number of airports and means that a wide variety of activities and places to live are open to you.

The headquarters are based at Culham Science Centre and include a number of operational and support departments, including ACPO, ACPO Secretariat, Operations & Operations Support, Special Branch, Human Resources, Central Administration Team, Finance, IT and Communications, Corporate Development, Procurement and Estates and Legal.

A number of these teams are staffed by civilian Police Staff – administrators, finance clerks, accountants, IT specialists and HR professionals, as well as other skilled professionals. Most of the Police Officer posts at Culham are specialist roles so Officers need to complete their two-year probationary period at an operational unit prior to transferring to Culham.
