Nuclear skills shortage in Britain

Across the UK, businesses of all shapes, sizes and sectors face increasing
competition for talent. But the big question is: does the country – with
its long-standing skills gap in a number of industries – have the
foundations to build a workforce which can meet our economic and
environmental ambitions?

Nuclear faces a perfect storm in developing future
talent with the combination of a historic lack of investment, an ageing
workforce and the government’s aspirations for growth in civil and
defence (due to the drive to reach net zero and national security
concerns). This means the sector must increase its recruitment levels by
300% at a time of fierce competition for talent.
