Following energy giant EDF making its decision to proceed with its planned nuclear plant at Hinkley Point, Morson Group’s CEO, Ged Mason said “This is an excellent boost for the British economy during a period of relative instability in the wake of the Brexit vote.  As the UK’s leading supplier of talent in the nuclear industry, we see this decision as a catalyst to driving further financial and employment growth within the UK’s engineering industry.”

We deliver a unique blend of engineering consultancy and recruitment solutions to the nuclear industry supporting the full project lifecycle. Our in-house experts and proven delivery capability over the past 40 years mean the we are uniquely poised to track and support the effective utilisation of the industry’s existing resources. With over 20,000 candidates placed by Morson into key projects within nuclear, we have consistently demonstrated our ability to create and maintain our existing nuclear talent pool as well as building new talent communities using our cross-sector presence.

Ged continued “Hinkley Point C will create 25,000 new jobs and securing the skilled resources required will be a major challenge for the nuclear industry. At Morson we’re working with our client base to develop a broader range of skills for trainee-level operatives such as the use of exchange placements to widen their experience of different project stages.  We’ve also invested into our use of apprenticeship and training frameworks to attract new talent as well as to develop our own employees.”

“Overall, this is very exciting news for the nuclear industry as it demonstrates a clear commitment to its future as well as the positive repercussions it will inevitably have on the UK’s economy.”

We were the leading supplier of talent at the last major new-build project Sizewell B, and look forward to working with our suppliers on this exciting new project and other nuclear new build programs.
