About the opportunity:
Hinkley Point C is a nuclear site, based in West Somerset, 15 miles from Bridgwater. The NNB ambition is to build two major EPR nuclear plants. The first new nuclear power station to be built in the UK in over 20 years; Hinkley Point C in Somerset will provide low-carbon electricity for around 6 million homes, create thousands of jobs and bring lasting benefits to the UK economy.
Construction and operation of Hinkley Point C will create 25,000 employment opportunities, up to 1,000 apprenticeships and 64% of the project’s construction value is predicted to go to UK companies. There are currently over 3,100 workers on site.
Marking a significant milestone in the revitalisation of our nuclear power industry, Hinkley Point C will make a major contribution to the UK’s move to reduce carbon emissions. The electricity generated by its two EPR reactors will offset 9 million tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions a year, or 600 million tonnes over its 60-year lifespan.
The Environment Engineer is responsible for understanding the legislation and permits that govern environmental activity at HPC and ensuring that the contractors and consultants working on the construction site comply with these regulations. They will adopt the ethos; see it, sort it and report it. This involves identifying shortcomings and providing guidance to the contractors on how improvements can be achieved.
A key part of the role will be interfacing with the environment teams within the contract partner organisations as well as those carrying out the works. This means that the Site Environment Engineer will need to develop relationships with key stakeholders across the HPC workforce to ensure environmental standards are achieved and they will be required to maintain an up to date database of inspections, audits, and actions. The post holder will provide advice and guidance to ensure the smooth operation of HPC as well as effectively report environmental issues in a timely manner.
