ENS 2014 Career Convention: bringing together employers and employees active in the nuclear sector
After the great success of its 2012 Career Convention ENS will again organise a similar event in 2014, back-to-back with ENC 2014 in Marseille, France (11 May 2014).
A recent survey among nuclear professionals revealed a very high level of job mobility, with around half of respondents willing to work anywhere in Europe or even worldwide. This is consistent with the ability of many respondents to speak English or French to a good business level, as well as a very high willingness to learn another language if the prospective employment requires it. The preparedness of professionals in the nuclear industry to relocate as well as increase their language proficiency provides an opportunity for organisations that are willing to do so to recruit from the international market.
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 creating this opportunity and to bring together employers and employees in the nuclear sector. Consequently, the 2012 Career Convention attracted highly skilled candidates from over 30 countries who applied while at various different stages of their respective careers – ranging from outright beginners to professionals with more than 10 years of experience. They applied for job opportunities that corresponded to 44 different profiles in areas as diverse as safety and process engineering, procurement management and marketing.
Preparations are now in full swing to repeat this success next year in Marseille. For further information employers interested in hiring highly qualified professionals and employees in the nuclear sector who are actively looking for new challenges can already contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call Kirsten Epskamp +32 2 505 30 54.
