  • Sally Parker
    Junior Engineer

    An apprenticeship within the Nuclear industry really does offer exciting opportunities to learn and develop your skills, you will be exposed to so many interesting and critical projects and will be working alongside knowledgeable people. This isn’t something you get in any industry.

    I was really pleased to win the UK Nuclear Skills Awards Apprentice of the Year 2021. The award recognised all my hard work and the enthusiasm I have for my role and this industry.

  • Alex Wixon
    Junior Engineer

    In my role you need to be personable, punctual, technical and patient. As an apprentice you’ll gain a lot of skills and experience whilst working.

    My favourite part of my job is the satisfaction when something is finally fixed.

  • Tayela Jarvis Dale
    Junior Engineer

    To be successful, the skills I believe to be important are being a good listener, the ability to learn from mistakes and having excellent attention to detail. These skills empower you to learn and develop from others, and acquire new knowledge from all the work that you do.

  • Ryan Vaughan
    Development Engineer

    After such a short time of being with Capula, I am getting great recognition for my work, and the team has started to deliver software to clients that is changing their way of working. When joining the team, the product was in its infancy and its rewarding to see how far it has come within a short time frame.

  • Josh Luckman

    Since joining Capula in 2011 as a Junior Systems Engineer, I have been fortunate enough to be offered many opportunities to develop professionally throughout my career and academically alongside it. In 2015 Capula offered to support and sponsor my academic journey, initially a FdSc in Electrical and Electronic Technology and more recently for a BEng (Hons) in Electrical and Electronic Engineering.
