Engineering recruiters NRL have announced a recruitment fair on Monday 19th February 2024, to highlight construction roles on the world-class, high-tech Energy Recovery Facility (ERF), currently under construction at Edmonton EcoPark.

The ERF is being built by ACCIONA, a global group that develop sustainable infrastructure solutions, who are partnering with NRL to create a talent pool of skilled construction and engineering workers to support the project.

The recruitment fair is being held at the Engine Room in Tottenham Hale, a location picked because of its good public transport connections, with people encouraged to register to attend by visiting the website to book their place.

On the day, two sessions will be running, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, which each start with a presentation from project stakeholders to provide an update on the site and explain how the talent pool will operate. As well as spotlighting the typical skills and expertise the project is expected to need, such as mechanical and electrical roles, scaffolding, health and safety, welding, and many more.

The ERF is being commissioned by the North London Waste Authority (NLWA) to replace the existing facility and ensure residual household waste can continue to be managed in a sustainable way. Part of the North London Heat and Power Project, a nationally significant public infrastructure project to create flagship recycling and waste facilities to support the seven north London boroughs that the NLWA represents. Once complete, the ERF will generate electricity for up to 127,000 homes and support heating and hot water for up to 60,000 homes through a district heat network. It will use the world’s most advanced technology to capture pollutants including Selective Catalytic Reduction to reduce emissions of nitrogen oxides to a level 60% lower than the minimum standards.

Discussing the upcoming recruitment fair, NRL Group Director Greg Compton commented:

"We're delighted to be hosting this recruitment fair, to help highlight the many construction roles that are expected across the project to build the new Energy Recovery Facility.

The talent pool will be utilised by all sub-contractors on the project when they need support to deliver programmes of works on site. We're looking to connect with as many skilled construction and engineering workers as possible, who are interested in joining the talent pool so look forward to meeting interested candidates at the fair."
