The energy firm EDF plans to recruit 10,000 staff over the next five years as it expands its nuclear power capabilities. EDF, which is building two reactors at Hinkley Point, Somerset, and two more at Sizewell, Suffolk, intends to hire thousands of scientists, engineers and technicians. It has reportedly already signed up 100 designers and engineers to be based at its head office in London. It plans to produce power at Hinkley from 2017-18 and at Sizewell two years later.
