Nuclear sector expert Michael Bray, a senior associate from Burges Salmon, has been appointed as Vice Chair of The Young Generation Network (YGN).

The appointment is effective from 1 January 2016 for two years.

One of the leading UK Nuclear organisations, the YGN is a UK-wide branch of the Nuclear Institute that is open to anyone under the age of 37 working in the nuclear industry. There are approximately 800 active UK members, with over 1,500 young nuclear professionals attending events and participating in YGN driven initiatives. The YGN also has strong links with other similar organisations across Europe and the rest of the world.

The YGN is designed to promote career progression, knowledge sharing and professional networking. It provides an invaluable resource for those new to and seeking to enter the nuclear profession, trying to plug the emerging national skills gap in nuclear.

The Committee comprises individuals from Sellafield, Rolls Royce, the Office for Nuclear Regulation, NNL, LLWR, Innuserv, Amec Foster Wheeler, Ansaldo NES, DBD and Abbot Risk Consulting.

Burges Salmon Nuclear Real Estate partner, Paul Browne, said: “This is a key appointment for the firm’s reputation in the Nuclear Industry and is the result of a lot of hard yards put in across the business. Michael will continue to fly the flag for Burges Salmon in this regard and we would welcome anyone young enough to get involved.”
