Cavendish Nuclear hosted its first Future Talent Induction event this week in Manchester.
Having beaten off hundreds, and in some instances thousands, of potential applicants, the 56 graduates and apprentices spent time with members of the Cavendish Nuclear Executive Team and other inspirational colleagues from across the business.
One of the highlights included a presentation on building a personal brand, presented by Project Management Director, Mark Dearden,
“It was a privilege to be able to talk to the new apprentices and graduates about the importance of gaining real delivery and people leadership experience and how this enables the development of your own personal brand, credibility and gravitas.
“It was also an opportunity to share with them the vast wealth of opportunities that working within Cavendish Nuclear, and the wider Babcock Group, offers ranging from; critical emergency services, supporting the defence of the UK, to keeping the lights on through our support of the UK nuclear generation fleet.”
During the two-day event, there were workshops focused on wellbeing and mental health and on ‘Protecting our People,’ which explored Cavendish Nuclear’s values around diversity and inclusion and never compromising on the health, safety and wellbeing of our people.
The event concluded with introductions with functional leads, mentors and buddies and the group were also given the opportunity to meet representatives from the various professional institutions including the IMechE and IET and were able to sign up as members in readiness for developing towards chartership.
