Sizewell C is the new nuclear power station planned to be built in Suffolk. Nuclear power is a key way to help the UK meet its Net Zero commitments and reduce our reliance on polluting fossil fuels.
Come join our session and hear from people working on Sizewell C about their roles and how we are working to increase biodiversity in the area.
You will get to hear from people that work in the Sizewell C environment team and learn about their role on the project and the many different environmental organisations we work with.
You will also see some of the habitats we are creating, such as the six hectares of wetland and 60 hectares of surrounding heathland at Aldhurst Farm and some of the wildlife that has made it their home! The wetlands include five lagoons and more than 120,000 reedbeds, have been designed to ensure that reed bed and lowland ditch habitats are able to develop a similar biodiversity value to those within the adjacent Sizewell Marshes SSSI. The wetlands, and surrounding grassland and heathland habitats, are already well established and have been colonised by rare Marsh Harriers, which also breed at Minsmere.
We also hope to give you a preview of a new interactive website we are launching later this year to look around the project during and after we have built the power station.
CRITERIA - Only students living in or going to school/college in Suffolk and Norfolk are eligible to apply for this opportunity.
The insight session will run from 10am until 1pm.
Skills/Experiences You Will Gain:
- Understanding how the organisation operates
- Understanding more about the sector
- Understanding how a business operates
The closing date for this job offer is on 08/03/2021
