The North, the Midlands and the Southwest will be major growth areas for jobs supporting the UK’s energy transition
Assystem, an international engineering, digital, and project management services group, plans to hire at least 560 new employees in UK regions in 2023. Blackburn, Bristol, Derby and Sunderland in particular stand to benefit as key locations for jobs in the UKs decarbonised power sector.
The company is seeking candidates for 360+ engineering roles and 80+ digital and Project Management Office positions, as well as 40+ infrastructure services specialists and 60+ business functions professionals in its eight UK offices. It is also seeking graduates for its 2023 intake.
Many of these positions will support the development of the UK’s new nuclear fleet, including the Hinkley Point C, Sizewell C, and Rolls-Royce Small Modular Reactor programme. The company is also recruiting to support key UK transport projects, including HS2, East-West Rail, and Great North Rail.
New roles will also relate to the development of STEP (Spherical Tokamak for Energy Production) a new fusion power facility planned for West Burton that will demonstrate the ability to generate net electricity from fusion energy – an industry expected to be worth billions to the UK economy.
