A RISLEY firm is helping to give young adults a ‘leg-up’ in the nuclear industry as part of a government scheme. Nuvia UK, based on Birchwood Park, have signed up to the government’s Kickstart scheme which aims to give new job placements to 16-24 year olds on Universal Credit who are at risk of long-term unemployment. The nuclear specialist firm hope to roll out the scheme across other areas within the nuclear sector, as larger projects such as Sizewell C in Suffolk remain on the brink of approval. Nuvia UK recently became a member of the Sizewell C Consortium – a group of over 200 leading nuclear suppliers in the UK – to highlight the importance of Sizewell C being built. Tom Jones, CEO of Nuvia UK, said: ”It’s an exciting moment when you can say to a young person who comes from nearby “We’re going to give you a chance to get into the industry” and that’s what this is all about making sure that there are constant opportunities for the people Warrington here at NUVIA UK.
