Transfer skills and go nuclear, Wirral recruiter urges recession battered workers.
Redundant workers in recession stricken industries such as construction and the motor trade are being urged to transfer their skills to the cash rich nuclear sector.
Wirral based Scantec Personnel, one of the UKs leading recruitment firms, says the nuclear sector is bucking the recession and has a massive demand for work.
Adam Spelman, the head of Scantecs nuclear division, said UK-wide opportunities are being created by the Governments multi billion pound decommissioning programme as well as the construction of a new generation of reactors (see notes to editors). He said skills in demand included a wide range of engineers, skilled tradesmen and surveyors.
The recession is wreaking havoc with the jobs market, said Adam. So the key phrase we are repeating to workers is transferable skills. That is what employers are looking for. Real long term, well paid opportunities exist in the nuclear industry as well as the oil and gas and the bio mass sector. It is important to point out that these sectors are willing to train up staff who have core skills. It is these sectors that workers in the decimated motor industry, construction trade need to look. The advice to workers is talk to recruitment specialists, send in your CV and see how you can pick up work.
