Helping the Hinkley supply chain secure local and diverse candidates. Utility organisations recognise the need to support and to source suitably qualified staff from their local communities. EDF have established a target of 25% of the workforce to come from Somerset and 35% from within a 90-mile radius. Utilities also recognise that their workforce needs to reflect the diversity of their customers and communities and EDF have established goals for employing women, disabled and ethnic community candidates. A2O People are located in the heart of the communities most effected by the Hinkley Point C project and have a particular focus and capability in diversity recruitment. We are therefore a strong partner to help consultant and contractor organisations achieve their local workforce and diversity targets. For more information go to our Diversity page.
