Jobs at Hinkley Point C
To help ensure local people can access employment opportunities - during construction and operation - we've established a dedicated Hinkley Jobs service. A partnership between EDF Energy, Jobcentre Plus and other local support organisations and training providers, Hinkley Jobs:
- Matches people to available jobs at Hinkley Point C and other local opportunities
- Arranges and delivers programmes to help people into work
- Invests in and supports dedicated local training centres providing the skills and courses employers need
Almost 200 people have so far been placed in jobs on the project with employers in the local supply chain. The team has also been very successful in placing workers who have recently been made redundant from major local employers.
If you wish to register your interest in future opportunities, please register your interest online. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call a member of the team on 0800 029 4289.
How the Hinkley Job service works
Early work with our contract partners is helping identify and plan for the specific jobs that will be created at Hinkley Point C during construction. The Hinkley Jobs team uses this information to support local people in their planning and preparation – including training and pre-employment support where possible - for when the roles become available.
Local people have priority access to job opportunities. Hinkley Jobs receives all vacancies 48 hours before they are opened up to wider recruitment channels. The team aims to match local candidates from their database to jobs. It is only if potential candidates for roles cannot be identified locally that opportunities will be advertised more widely.
How to register your interest in jobs
Hinkley Point C is a nuclear construction project and will require all potential employees to exhibit the behaviours necessary to work within strict security and health and safety requirements. Before being put forward for any vacancy through Hinkley Jobs, you will need to complete an online application form.
