EDF Energy is the headline sponsor of the energy sector exhibition again this year and hopes to raise awareness of the range of careers on offer in the industry.

Staff from the Sizewell C project and Sizewell B power station will be on hand to provide advice on how to carve out a career in the energy sector and may be one day help keep the lights on in Suffolk.

Tom McGarry, Head of Communications for the Sizewell C project said: “EDF Energy is proud to support the Suffolk Skills Show again this year.

“Events like this are vital as EDF Energy wants to inspire students in the STEM subjects and to provide information on the possible career paths that the industry has to offer.

“There are great opportunities in the energy sector for young people in Suffolk who demonstrate the commitment and grades. Here in the East of England EDF Energy operates Sizewell B power station which employs 570 staff and 250 contracting partners with 36 local apprentices taking part in a four year award winning training programme. Furthermore, the proposed Sizewell C power station would provide 5,600 roles at the peak of construction and 900 staff when operational.”

The Suffolk Skills Show is the largest employer-led skills and careers event in the area and is expected to attract thousands of Suffolk youngsters. The show provides hands-on experiences that inspire young people to explore careers and motivates them to find out more about the world of work.

The event will be held at Trinity Park on 21 October from 9.00am – 6.00pm for more information visit suffolkskillsshow.com
