International engineering and digital services group Assystem has announced that in 2022 it plans to make 450 new hires in the UK to work on low carbon projects.

Assystem is committed to the energy transition by promoting the development of carbon-free electricity and today the company is launching an ambitious recruitment campaign to meet the growing needs of its customers in energy, rail transport and infrastructure.

Many of the roles being recruited for are to support the development of the UKs new nuclear projects such as Hinkley Point C, Sizewell C and on the UK’s Small Modular Reactor programme, as well as on the development of fusion energy technology.

In the rail sector, Assystem is seeking planning and consents consultants, project and programme managers, cost auditors, ecologists, environmental consultants, quantity surveyors and town planners.

To support the company’s digital business Assystem is looking to recruit data engineers, project integration specialists and system architects.

Key profiles sought in nuclear include mechanical, electrical and control and instrumentation designers and engineers. Assystem is also seeking experienced site supervision and commissioning experts with nuclear experience.

Furthermore, Assystem’s subsidiary, Corporate Risk Associates (CRA), is seeking to expand and is advertising 25 new specialist technical roles based across the UK including human factors specialists and risk and safety consultants to work on low carbon energy projects in the UK and internationally.

Nuclear recruits will benefit from specialist training from the Assystem Nuclear Institute, while new colleagues in rail and digital activities will benefit from a similar professional development offer from the Assystem Rail Institute and the Assystem Digital Institute.

The company strives to build a lasting relationship with its employees, encouraging them to be the architect of their career progression whether they are seeking to specialise, diversify their skillsets or enter leadership roles.

Assystem has a strong HR policy and ethos and since 2010, the group has implemented actions on gender diversity through the creation of the #INCREDIBLEWOMEN programme, which is organised around three main pillars: to recruit, retain and evolve more women in the company. A key initiative of this programme is the investment of £5 million in a new UK graduate scheme to attract 100 women to nuclear roles by 2025-6.

As part of its 2022 recruitment drive Assystem is looking to attract candidates who will not only be excellent in their respective fields but also possess the behaviours and attributes that align with the company’s culture, where people are encouraged to collaborate, be agile, resilient and to dare.  Assystem’s values of; trust, creativity, responsibility, and solidarity are the foundation of its relationship with employees, with whom they are focused on building long term and sustainable relationships that will allow them to evolve with the company.

Simon Barber Assystem’s UK Managing Director said, “It is an exciting time for Assystem in the UK, our business is fully aligned to achieving the UK’s decarbonisation plan to meet its net zero commitments, so we must have a strong team to deliver these new infrastructure projects.

“Today the UK is in a new era of building energy technology, delivering new electrified transport infrastructure, and is delivering major nuclear new build and nuclear decommissioning programmes. Companies such as Assystem are vital in supplying the expertise and leadership to deliver these projects.  Our growth in the UK is matched by our commitment to invest in the training and development of our employees and to building the diverse workforces of the future.”
