A LIAISON officer for a nuclear power station has been hired to help North Somerset businesses benefit from the project.
North Somerset Council has appointed Sam Bodman to work as a business liaison officer for the Hinkley Point C project.
EDF Energy was given the go-ahead to build the nuclear power station at Hinkley Point, near Bridgwater, in October.
Ms Bodman will work with the Hinkley supply chain team, managed by the Somerset Chamber of Commerce, and will promote North Somerset suppliers to EDF.
The council’s deputy leader Elfan Ap Rees, whose portfolio includes economic development, said: “I very much welcome Sam to our economic development team to fill a much needed gap.
“The development and growth at Hinkley Point offers huge long term employment, training and business opportunities for North Somerset and this appointment will ensure we give it the attention it deserves.”
