Commercial management and cost consultancy Rider Levett Bucknall has opened an office in Egremont, West Cumbria to service its Sellafield contract.
The office will support the 20 RLB staff working on site at Sellafield and other related waste recovery clients in the area.
Deryck Barton, managing partner of RLB, said: "The region is becoming one of the fastest growing economies in the UK which is transforming the area. For us, it's not just about transferring staff and opening a new office. This will create many opportunities for local people; we are already recruiting a number of quantity surveyors, commercial managers and technical support staff."
Rider Levett Bucknall offers a range of services to the nuclear sector including commercial and cost consultancy, project controls, risk management, value management and a number of advisory services.
RLB is currently looking to appoint four quantity surveyors and is also planning to look for local trainees to join, engaging with schools towards the end of this academic year in April and May time.
