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

University of Suffolk student recruited for Sizewell C




A law student from University of Suffolk has been selected to join the Sizewell C project as a Legal Intern.


Naomi Butt, 21, from Ipswich, a second year student at University of Suffolk, joins the Sizewell C legal team in London working on one of the biggest infrastructure projects in Europe. Naomi is currently concentrating on providing legal support for the Stage 3 consultation documents which will be used at the Sizewell C public exhibitions.


Julia Pyke said:  “I am delighted that students in Suffolk are already benefitting from Sizewell C which offers such fantastic opportunities around skills, education and employment. I will watch Naomi’s progress with interest and ensure she gets the most out of her placement with our legal department.”


Naomi is no stranger to Sizewell, her 83 year-old grandfather worked on the construction and operation of Sizewell A and her mother worked in the accounts department at Sizewell B.


Speaking on the placement, Naomi said:  “Working on the Sizewell C project was too good an opportunity to miss! It’s a great way to experience real life as a lawyer outside the classroom.”


Julia Pyke, Nuclear Development Director and Jim Crawford, Sizewell C Project Development Director, met with University of Suffolk and University of East Anglia to explore ways of working together.  In addition to offering Legal intern positions to both universities the project team are also looking at other ways they can make use of the campus research facilities during the consultation process.


The paid placement with the Sizewell C legal department is for one year and on completion Naomi will return to University of Suffolk to finish her degree.
