Dounreay received a request from the pharmacy at Caithness General Hospital, Wick to see if we could help collect a COVID-19 vaccine shipment stranded in Golspie due to the wintery conditions. Michael Sinclair and Peter Swanson answered the call and took Dounreay’s snowplough to the Lawson Memorial in Golspie to collect approximately 700 jabs stored in 3 chilled boxes, and delivered them to the pharmacy in Wick. We are continuing to help distribute the vaccine with drivers and vehicles, delivering it to medical centres across the far north. We’re incredibly proud of our team for the support they’ve given the community during the pandemic. They’ve been shortlisted for a National Skills Academy Nuclear - NSAN award for that work and we’d be grateful if you could vote for them: www.nsan.co.uk/page/DSRLCommunityAwardFinalist ...

As part of National Apprenticeship Week we are introducing you to some of our apprentices. Conor Hendry started his Business and Administration Apprenticeship in July 2019 in the Programme Office. Conor said: “I went straight from school to work at Dounreay and I was nervous about what the future would hold, but the apprenticeship has flown by, meeting and learning from many super people along the way. I have felt my team and Dounreay have always given me the greatest opportunities to develop my skills and as a person. “In these short 18 months I have been given the opportunity to take on an SVQ in Business and Administration, an HNC in Accountancy and an ECITB in project controls. As my 18 months apprenticeship is coming to an end, I am moving into an administration role in the same department. I look forward to the future with Dounreay and would highly recommend this apprenticeship to anyone willing to take on a new challenge.”Apply for one of our current Engineering and Business apprentice vacancies now: dounreaycareers.com/current-vacancies/ #NAW2021 ...

To mark National Apprenticeship Week we introduce you to Niall Sinclair and Leslie Hibbert, who are completing a 2 year Health Physics Surveyor training scheme.Leslie said: “The training programme has been interesting and enjoyable. I’ve learned a lot and have a better understanding of the role of Health Physics Surveyor despite the giant obstacle Coronavirus has proved to be. Having not seen a scientific calculator for at least 10 years, I found the classroom side challenging, but the trainers were patient and excellent at breaking that side of it down for me. We’re all eager just to get back to site and crack on with the job learning.”Niall said: “I have completed 2 Radiological Protection Theory courses without any on site experience and then late last year I got on site to shadow other surveyors. I am massively enjoying my training and hope to be back on site soon to continue working towards becoming a fully qualified Health Physics Surveyor.”Apply for one of our current Engineering and Business apprentice vacancies now: dounreaycareers.com/current-vacancies/ #NAW2021 ...
