A NOTE FROM THE CHAIRMAN:
The YGN is a sub-set of the BNES that is specifically for the younger members of the industry. It allows us to have a voice, our own events and helps us establish a network amongst ourselves. UKAEA have supported me fully and this will hopefully allow us to be involved in many of the above activities. UKAEA is very supportive of the BNES and recognises the many opportunities it offers, which can enhance our skills and open up the future to all of us.
The BNES, is an external body that will offer a different, and often wider range of opportunities to UKAEA. These opportunities can continue throughout your career and often contribute to your CPD (Continued Professional Development)
Opportunities, such as
To show how beneficial the YGN can be, here are some quotes from some people from within the Nuclear Industry:
‘As a young worker in today’s nuclear industry the YGN gives me a voice on the key issues that are facing the industry as it goes through unprecedented and accelerated change. As this is the industry I have chosen to base my career this voice is vital.’
‘After attending the “Speaking Competition” for two consecutive years, I personally realised the complexity involved in projects associated with other engineering disciplines, such as mechanical, electrical and waste management. Most projects involve the interaction of different disciplines and being aware of this enables one to interact better. This particular aspect has made me a better professional.’
‘The YGN facilitated site visits, interesting lectures and social activities, This enabled me to meet other young (and not so young) people in the industry and share experiences.‘
As well as the above ‘goodies’, membership (costing £30/year) offers other benefits, such as receipt of a regular, high quality magazine - Nuclear Energy - and discounts at seminars.
Therefore as Chair of the Dounreay BNES Branch I'd like to encourage you to join, take part in our activities and help to proactively shape its future. If you are interested, please fill in the application form.
In addition, feel free to contact me ( Paul.Corrigan@ukaea.org.uk ) if you want any more information. You can also get added to my distribution list and so receive regular emails of information that I send out.
