Cavendish Nuclear workers honoured at engineering awards

Two women workers from Cavendish Nuclear have been recognised for their engineering work by The Engineering Construction Industry Training Board (ECITB).

At the ECITB’s annual awards, Jessica Hollingworth won Learner of the Year while Sarah Griffiths was a finalist in the Women in Engineering Award.

Both were part of a graduate scheme run by Cavendish Nuclear, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Babcock International Group.

Hollingworth joined Cavendish in 2013 and was later seconded to the UK government’s Department of Energy and Climate Change for two years, during which time she worked in the Office for Nuclear Development. The secondment was aimed at promoting best practice and sharing industry expertise between government and businesses.

Griffiths was recognised for her achievements in encouraging more women into engineering and her work in supporting Cavendish Nuclear’s STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) programme. 

She said “both Babcock and Cavendish Nuclear do a great job in overturning the perception that engineering is a dull and dirty job reserved for men in hard hats.”
