Recruitment drive at nuclear site
Many of the jobs are part of the clean-up process
The operator of the Sellafield nuclear reprocessing site is in the process of recruiting 300 staff.

British Nuclear Group (BNG) said many of the jobs have been created as part of the decommissioning process at the Cumbrian site.

It said there was the possibility of 400 more jobs but it would depend on the company making sufficient savings to fund additional clean-up work.

The company will be recruiting a wide range of jobs, including apprentices.

BNG said it had approached aluminium company Alcan, which last month announced plans to close its Workington site, in Cumbria, where 161 people work.

It has asked for CVs to see if there are skills among the workforce which match its vacancies.
