Find Your Role at HPC

We have launched a new bespoke digital application which will help job seekers find a role on the HPC project.

With hundreds of roles available, we appreciate that some people might feel overwhelmed by the diverse range of jobs available at HPC, so the app has been designed to provide users with a clear overview of the types of roles available at HPC.

It is aimed at people who already have a chosen occupation and those who are looking for some inspiration. Users will be provided with the opportunity to explore more about the project and will be invited to explore four main job sectors – Site Operations, Civil Construction, Mechanical & Electrical and Support before they undertake the questionnaire.

The app is a web-based questionnaire that captures an individual’s work preferences, skills and experience. It only takes a couple of minutes to complete and leads the user through a series of short and quick answer questions before it recommends job roles based on the responses given.
