French group EDF agreed to takeover British Energy for £12.5 billion to kick start the UK’s nuclear power strategy. They have taken control of all British Energy’s nuclear power stations and are currently in the planning stages of developing new stations in the UK.

BE currently employs 6,000 people whom EDF pledged they would ‘recognise and appreciate’ the importance of their employees and preserve their rights under their original terms. Alongside the safeguarding of existing employees, EDF’s investment in the British nuclear industry will help create thousands of skilled jobs.

As a big client of Allen & York Recruitment, we play a major role in recruiting for EDF currently and in the future. Please see the most recent opportunities in this sector in this month’s newsletter and all vacancies on our organisation profile:
