There is a specific emphasis on the individual’s achievement to promote the nuclear industry and fulfilment of the YGN Mission, “To encourage and develop the UK’s early career nuclear professionals, and ensure that their voice is heard in shaping the future of our sector.

The award is an attempt to recognise these individuals and their accomplishments over their brief time within the industry.

Nicole, who joined Frazer-Nash in 2018, comments:

“I am so pleased to have received this award and hope to continue to make nuclear part of the discussion on clean energy transitions; working alongside my colleagues at Frazer-Nash and across the sector to help shape nuclear into an industry of choice.”
