Sizewell C is a new nuclear power station proposed to be built on the Suffolk coast and we want to maximise the benefits of the project for the local area. That means more jobs, more local business contracts, and more opportunities for local people to train, learn new skills, benefit from the project and develop a sustainable career.
During the early years of the project we will need civil construction workers including plant operators, labourers, scaffolders, steel fixers, welders, carpenters and concrete specialists. We will also need a range of roles to support the construction, including project managers, bus drivers and caterers to feed our growing workforce.
Civil construction activity would peak half way through year five of the project, with up to 3,600 civil construction workers needed to help build the power station. At this point we could also require over 1,500 management roles and 550 support roles.
Following the peak of civil construction work, those roles will start to reduce and be replaced by Mechanical, Electrical and Heating (MEH) specialists. The peak of this work will happen during years seven and eight of the project and we estimate we will require up to 3,300 MEH roles on site at this time.
From year eight onwards there is a steady increase in operational roles required to run the power station. Once Sizewell C is complete, 900 skilled operational roles will be required.
