Next generation of nuclear professionals complete their degree apprenticeships

Sellafield recruits for a number of different apprenticeships.

The next generation of nuclear professionals are celebrating the completion of their degree apprenticeships and full-time roles at Sellafield. 

Sellafield, where nuclear waste is processed and stored, and nuclear decommissioning takes place, is training and employing apprentices across a range of engineering design disciplines. 

The latest cohort will help bolster the workforce needed to establish the UK’s energy independence and avoid crises like the one currently affecting many countries around the world. 

John Patterson, head of engineering design resources and development at Sellafield, said: “The training scheme is an excellent grounding for our new breed of nuclear workers. These graduates will play a big part in continuing the crucial work of cleaning up the country’s highest nuclear hazards.”    

Nick Mars, a graduate engineer, described the Sellafield degree apprenticeship programme as “unrivalled”. 

He said: “I do not doubt that I have been given unrivalled opportunities for technical, academic, and personal development during my apprenticeship which I’d consider invaluable for any young person starting their career in engineering.” 

Congratulations to the apprentices, and best of luck in your new roles! 

Sellafield is a prominent employer of apprentices, so keep an eye on its website for more information about vacancies. 

It recruited 200 apprentices across 18 different schemes last year.
