A Dream Placement at NSG for Dominic
Last week, NSG welcomed A-level student and chemistry enthusiast Dominic Jackson from West Lakes Academy for the Centre for Leadership Performance’s Dream Placement initiative.

During his Placement Week, Dominic spent his first day at NSG’s head office in Chorley, where he interviewed Managing Director Jim Porter and learned about the nuclear industry. For the rest of the week, Dominic was based at the Low Level Waste Repository in West Cumbria and shadowed members of the NSG site team. Whilst there, Dominic attended project meetings; chatted with engineers, project managers and planners to gain an insight into the different office-based roles; supported the project team with data collection and other project tasks; and received a bespoke tour of the site to witness operations.
Lesley Wood, HR Officer and Dream Placement representative for NSG, commented:
It was great to have Dominic with us for the week and we hope he had an enjoyable and educational experience. There are lots of exciting career opportunities available in the nuclear industry and Dream Placement enables students like Dominic to experience them first hand.
Dominic’s Dream Placement will conclude at the Showcase Event at Energus in Workington in late March, where he, Lesley and the rest of the participating students and company representatives will get back together to discuss their Dream Placement experiences.
