The Hinkley Jobs service

The construction and operation of Hinkley Point C will create thousands of employment and apprenticeship opportunities in a broad range of occupations and careers.  Opportunities will include construction, civil engineering, electrical installation, hospitality, catering, logistics, security, site services, support roles and others over the coming years. When complete, Hinkley Point C will also have an expected workforce of nearly a thousand people who will be needed to run the Power station throughout its 60 year operation.

To help ensure that local people can access employment opportunities, both during the construction and in operation, we've created a dedicated Hinkley Jobs service, a partnership between EDF Energy, Jobcentre Plus and other local support organisations and training providers. The Hinkley Jobs service:

  • Matches people to available jobs at Hinkley Point C and other local opportunities
  • Delivers and arranges programmes to help people into work
  • Invests in and supports dedicated local training centres that can provide skills and courses that employers need

 

How the Hinkley Jobs service works

How Hinkley Jobs works

We are working with our contract partners at an early stage to plan for the specific jobs that will be created at Hinkley Point C throughout the construction period.  This information is used by the Hinkley Jobs Team to help local people plan and prepare for the forthcoming roles as they start to become available.  This includes the potential for arranging tailored training and pre-employment support, where available.

All vacancies will be passed to Hinkley Jobs 48 hours before being opened up to wider recruitment, giving priority to local people.  The team will then match local candidates from their database to employment opportunities. If potential candidates for roles cannot be identified locally, the opportunities will be opened more widely.
