    Hinkley Point C Site Operations Recruitment Event

    Wednesday 30 August 2017

    People in West Somerset interested in finding a new challenge are invited to a Hinkley Point C Site Operations Recruitment Event in Minehead highlighting potential opportunities from the Hinkley Point C new nuclear power station.

    West Somerset Council employment and skills staff are working with partners to ensure our local communities are in a good position to benefit from jobs arising from Hinkley Point C.
     
    The event will be held at The Beach Hotel in Minehead – on the seafront – on Thursday 28 September from 4pm – 7pm. Representatives from Hinkley Point C Jobs Service, G4S Security and Facilities Team, Somerset Larder and Somerset Passenger Solutions will be present.
     
    The free event will give people the opportunity to find out more about the project and talk directly to employers about their current vacancies at Hinkley Point C. 
     
    Cllr Andrew Hadley, Lead Member for economic regeneration and growth, said: “We hope that local people will take the chance to visit this event and find out more about the opportunities on offer. A similar event earlier this year proved extremely popular.”
     
    David Blight of EDF Energy’s Hinkley Point C Jobs Service said: “Many people would be surprised at the wide range of potential jobs being created, so it is well worthwhile coming along to find out more. The Hinkley Point C Jobs Service has access to live job vacancies across all parts of the project, including among contractors, and can help people spot opportunities, give advice on how to apply and guide people through the application process.”
     
    For more information please contact Emily Wishart at West Somerset Council on 01984 635221.
     
    This event is aimed at West Somerset residents who are currently unemployed, under-employed in part time or temporary roles or those who are employed but want to further their job prospects.
