G4S to create 100 jobs following contract win at Sizewell C

G4S Secure Solutions UK has secured a £4.3 million interim security contract with EDF at Sizewell C nuclear plant in Suffolk, which will create almost 100 jobs for those living close to the site. So far, over 50 local residents have applied for positions or are in the process of onboarding.

This contract for Sizewell C is expected to continue through 2023 and available roles will comprise of vetting employees, managing access to the site in the Access Control team, monitoring surveillance systems, the perimeter of the site and being involved in incident management reporting.

G4S is also implementing the Sizewell C Induction Team. Almost 80 per cent of these new roles will be filled by workers who do not hold a Security Industry Authority licence, meaning that they will gain a new qualification working for G4S funded by G4S.

Since July 2015, G4S has been working on a 10-year contract to provide security services during the construction of Hinkley Point C, the first new nuclear power station built in Britain for a generation.

Two years later, the same customer, EDF, awarded G4S a multi-million pound contract, to provide facilities management services at the same site in Somerset, South West England.

Alistair McBride, Strategic Account Director for G4S UK’s Nuclear Power and Utilities Sector commented: “For over a decade, G4S has been committed to securing the UK’s critical national infrastructure and we’re incredibly proud of our work in creating thousands of job opportunities for local residents and sector specialists throughout the country.”

The construction of Sizewell C is expected to take 10 years. Once constructed the nuclear power station will provide low carbon electricity for six million homes for at least 60 years.
