EDF Energy's proposals for a new nuclear power station on the Suffolk coast

Capable of generating enough electricity to supply around five million homes

The two UK EPR reactors would generate electricity for up to 60 years

At the peak of construction the project would provide around 5,600 employment opportunities

Once operational, the new power station would support around 900 permanent jobs

Contributing to the UK's future needs for low carbon, secure and affordable energy

Sizewell C on the look-out for first apprentices



Sizewell C has launched a recruitment campaign to find its first apprentices in Quantity Surveying, Project Controls and Civil Engineering.


The apprentices will study at either the University of the West of England or the University of Exeter and gain work experience at Hinkley Point C, the sister project for Sizewell C, which is under construction in Somerset.  Once they have completed their apprenticeship they will begin work on Sizewell C.


Apprentices are also being recruited for Sizewell B, as the latest recruits have now started their training at the National College for Nuclear in Cannington, Somerset, after EDF Energy signed a five-year contract with the college train the company’s maintenance apprentices.


Jim Crawford, Sizewell C Project Development Director, said: “Sizewell C is going from strength to strength with stage 3 consultation launching early next year and the project team looking for its first apprentices in Quantity Surveying, Project Controls and Civil Engineering.”
