Assystem’s Rachel Atherton has accepted the role of Charter Contracts Manager for Women in Nuclear UK (WiN)

19 May 2020

As a driving force behind the AXIOM Times newsletter, Rachel’s communicative skillset will be pivotal in her role within Win’s Industry Guidance Team, with the aim to promote the company and its values while also looking at the current pledges, including the current Nuclear Sector Gender Commitment, with Assystem one of over 150 individuals and organisations to pledge support.

Rachel said: “Part of the reason I went for the role with WiN was after attending a session at the Wrightington Hotel for Assystem’s #INCREDIBLEWOMEN programme. To be around all those incredible women really spurred me on and inspired me. The presentations were useful and helpful and gave me a sense of belief and confidence.
“I am a woman working in the nuclear industry, who is a full-time working mum. I have worked for, with, and have a lot of incredible women working for me; it has been a fantastic experience working with AXIOM and Assystem.”

Assystem’s Chief Sales Officer, Matt Gallimore, added: “We are hugely proud of Rachel and her accomplishments, she enters this role with Assystem’s full support and backing. Her hard work and natural communicative skills will be a perfect fit for WiN, who are inheriting a highly skilled and dedicated worker to spread and incredibly important and pertinent message throughout the nuclear industry.”
