Hinkley Point C (HPC) will be the first in a new generation of nuclear power stations in the UK and one of the largest infrastructure projects in Europe. Sizewell C (SZC) will be the second of a new generation of nuclear stations to be built in the UK, following the construction of HPC.
The Project Controls function within the HPC & SZC Project Team is responsible for ensuring that project managers and senior managers have all the information they need to make decisions throughout the life-cycle of the projects.
Project Controls engineers will work both in an office environment using the latest computer systems and also at the engineering construction site to become familiar with estimating, planning, risk management and cost engineering.

You will spend 2 years learning with experts as part of the apprenticeship and, as well as getting valuable real world experience, you will study for the Level 3 Project Controls Technician standard.
