What did your career path from University to Group Head in the Fuel Route team at EDF look like?
After graduating from Liverpool University with a Degree in Electrical Engineering with Electronics, I took up a Graduate role which gave me a great introduction to the nuclear industry. One of my first placements was at Dounreay and I loved being on site and part of large engineering projects. Since then, I’ve worked all over the place on defueling and decommissioning projects… at Hartlepool, Heysham, Dounreay, Wilfa and at Sellafield.
Having spent many years working with EDF as a contractor, I already had vast experience of Heysham 1 fuel route, particularly the fuelling machine, when I joined EDF. When the vacancy with EDF came up it was perfect - I knew the people, I knew the work and I knew the job.
