Hanford Vitrification Plant Looking for at Least 200 New Employees
The Hanford Vitrification plant is looking for at least 200 new employees now that federal funding for the nuclear reservation is more stable.
A career fair is planned from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Feb. 21 at the Courtyard by Marriott in Richland to fill positions in Richland and in Reston, Va.
Bechtel National plans to hire about 150 workers for jobs in engineering, construction, project controls, procurement and other support positions.
Candidates should bring electronic and hard copy resumes to the career fair and be prepared to talk with managers. Job descriptions are posted at www.vitplantjobs.com.
The $12.3 billion plant is planned to treat up to 56 million gallons of radioactive waste for disposal. The waste is left from the past production of plutonium for the nation’s nuclear weapons program.
