THE energy giant behind plans for a third nuclear reactor on the Suffolk coast is holding an apprentice information day next month.

EDF Energy, which this week unveiled the first details of proposals for Sizewell C, say the event would be invaluable for anyone considering an engineering career.

The open day for the firm’s “advanced nuclear apprenticeship scheme” will include information on how to apply, qualifications needed and a tour of Sizewell B.

It is taking place at Sizewell Sports and Social Club, St George’s Avenue, Leiston, at 10.30am on Saturday, December 1.

Jim Crawford, station director at Sizewell B, said: “EDF Energy is really keen to encourage anyone looking for a future career in the energy industry to come along to the open day to find out what we have to offer in an industry that is growing and is vital to the UK.

“In the current climate, an apprenticeship offers a real alternative to going to university. Our scheme is very highly regarded and this course could be the start of a truly amazing engineering career. Several members of EDF Energy’s executive team started with the company as apprentices, so the message is that the sky really is the limit for our apprentices.

“This day is really important as it gives us a chance to share our enthusiasm and experience with those wishing to apply to join the apprenticeship scheme in 2013.

“While anyone who meets the criteria can apply, we are very keen to encourage females to consider a career in engineering at EDF Energy. Some female members of staff will be on hand to share their experiences of working in the nuclear industry.”
