About the opportunity:

Overview

The multi-billion Hinkley Point C (HPC) project is the cornerstone of the Nuclear New Build market in the UK. The project is circa 40% complete and is now starting the transition from Civils construction into multi-trade delivery, including MEH and Equipment installation.

We have provided significant support to the project dating back to 2010 and have recently agreed a long-term partnership agreement with HPC which runs until the end of the project in another seven years or so.

Given the complexity and length of the project, it provides a unique opportunity for people to learn about all stages of Nuclear New Build delivery and to really develop and grow as individuals.
