13 March 2017

Global nuclear recruitment and executive search firm Thomas Thor celebrated the opening of their new office in Bristol, UK. The event was attended by EDF Nuclear New Build, members of the UK supply chain and representatives from the Nuclear Institute and Nuclear South West amongst others.

The event opened with a welcome address from Eve Guilloton, Head of Thomas Thor’s UK business:

“Our presence in Bristol means that we can provide enhanced support to the UK nuclear industry. This includes the Hinkley Point C project and its stakeholders, with our aim being to make sure that they have the right people with the right skills in order to work towards an ‘on-time’ and ‘on-budget’ delivery’’. Thomas Thor already has a UK presence in Cumbria which supports the North West, and the team in Bristol will support the wider nuclear industry in the South of the UK.

“The Head of HR for Hinkley Point C described Thomas Thor as a “valuable partner” to EDF Energy’s Nuclear New Build business and welcomed their “commitment to the Hinkley Point C project”.

Hinkley Point C will create 25,000 job opportunities during construction and employ 900 people at the power station over its 60 years of operation.

Callum Thomas, CEO and Founder of Thomas Thor, stated:

“We are extremely proud to be part of the UK nuclear industry and our new Bristol office is a statement of our long term commitment to nuclear new build here”.

He added:

“The long term career opportunities in the UK nuclear industry have never been better, and our mission is to attract the very best people to the industry. In addition to the existing nuclear talent pool, we can also recruit specialists and leaders from other complex and regulated sectors to join the nuclear industry. We also have the opportunity to repatriate British experts that have moved to other parts of the world to deliver mega infrastructure projects.”

With offices across Europe, North America and the Middle East, Thomas Thor is a global business that maintains a strong local presence wherever it operates.
