The construction and operation of Hinkley Point C will create thousands of employment and apprenticeship opportunities in a broad range of occupations and careers. For example, there will be jobs in construction, civil engineering, electrical installation, hospitality, catering, logistics, security, site services, support roles and others over the coming years. And it’s not just during construction. When complete, Hinkley Point C will have an expected workforce of 900 people to run the power station throughout its 60-year operation. Our aspiration is to create 1,000 apprenticeships during construction. The wide range of skills required to build Hinkley Point C means there really is an opportunity for everyone.
Apprenticeships are at the forefront of our workforce development and skills needs. We are dedicated to providing the best possible access and experience for all apprentices working and learning as part of the project.
To help ensure local people can access employment opportunities - during construction and operation - we've established a dedicated Hinkley Point C Jobs Service. A partnership between EDF Energy, Jobcentre Plus and other local support organisations and training providers, Hinkley Point C Jobs Service:
Matches people to available jobs and apprenticeships at Hinkley Point C and in the local supply chain. Arranges and delivers programmes to help people into work.
Invests in and supports dedicated local training centres providing the skills and courses employers need. If you wish to register your interest with the Hinkley Point C Jobs Service and find out about future opportunities on the project, please register your interest online.
