Sellafield to create another 142 jobs

Another 142 new jobs are to be created at Sellafield on top of the 500 announced by Conservative Energy minister John Hayes shortly before Christmas.

Sellafield stakeholders relations director Rory O'Neill told the Whitehaven News this week that

We made a commitment before Christmas that our recruitment campaign would be locally focused, and as we come to the end of the campaign around the end of this month we will be able to look closely at the recruitment process, drilling down where exactly our new recruits are from.

“We’re confident we will meet our commitment to source most of our new workers in West Cumbria.

“All in all being able to offer another 140 new posts on top of the previous 500 is brilliant news. It increases the professional skills base on the site and further establishes Sellafield and West Cumbria as a global centre for nuclear excellence whose best days are ahead.

“It also helps us deliver Sellafield’s mission of accelerating safe and efficient clean up. Because of the progress we’re making and the efficiencies achieved, we are now able to focus even more funding on speeding up the work safely.”
