ENC 2012 Careers: bringing together employers and employees active in the nuclear sector

As the largest European society representing professionals active in the nuclear science and industry community, ENS is well-placed to act as a catalyst for bringing together employers and employees in the nuclear sector. It was therefore decided to use this years’ ENC 2012, which will take place in Manchester (UK) from 9-12 December, as a springboard for organising an event called ENC 2012 Careers. Combining these two events will enable participants to fully exploit the synergies that exist between them.

ENC 2012 Careers brings together some of the most renowned employers active in the nuclear sector, including Westinghouse, EDF, Atkins, Slovenske Electrarne (ENEL Group), Rolls Royce, ONET Technologies and AREVA. They offer job opportunities that correspond to 44 different profiles in areas as diverse as safety and process engineering, procurement management and marketing.

Candidates from over 30 countries have responded to these offers. They were mostly highly skilled (59% having already obtained an MSc, 21% a BSc degree and 20% a PhD) and had applied whilst at various different stages of their career – ranging from outright beginners to professionals with more than 10 years of experience.   So, not surprisingly, most of them were offered a face-to-face interview with a future employer!

But ENC 2012 Careers is much more than this….

On 9 December, professionals interested in having a career in nuclear will be able to meet prospective employers at Manchester Town Hall and discuss their futures.

Information Session

ENC 2012 Careers will start with an Information Session where all companies will present themselves.

Information Desks

In a professional but relaxed environment that is conducive to candidate-recruiter interaction, candidates will be given an opportunity to contact companies at their Information Desks. This is THE not-to-be-missed chance for an interested prospective employee to meet representatives from many different companies, and all within a short period of time. Even if you are unsure about whether or not to meet with a company representative just go ahead and approach one; give your personal pitch and highlight the skills you have to offer – you never know where it will lead you. You’ve got nothing to lose and everything to gain. What you could accomplish at a careers convention like this might take you months to achieve on your own!


Be ready to network with other candidates. A careers convention is a great opportunity to connect with them.

A direct connection with ENC 2012

ENC 2012 is expected to attract more than 800 nuclear professionals and will feature an extensive parallel Industry Exhibition covering over 2000 m2. It offers a unique get-together opportunity for professionals in the nuclear sector! All career opportunity candidates will be invited to the ENC 2012 Welcome Reception and will also have a possibility to visit the Industry Exhibition.

It is still possible to register your presence at ENC 2012 Careers on 9 December, at the Manchester Town Hall. To do so, simply fill in the registration form and send it to
