Framatome, the French nuclear company designing nuclear power plants and providing nuclear boiler equipment and reactor maintenance services, has announced the recruitment of 300 employees in 2019 in its sites at Saint-Marcel, Chalon-sur-Saône and Le Creusot, all located in the department of Saône-et-Loire. The profiles sought are engineers, boilermakers, welders, maintenance technicians.

A recruitment was announced in 2018 (300 job creations). Previously, Areva NP (which became Framatome) announced in March 2017, the recruitment for 220 new positions in the department of Saône-et-Loire, including 200 at its sites of Châlon-sur-Saône and Saint-Marcel. With these recruitments, the group gained the workforce it had lost in the framework of the voluntary departures plan launched by Areva in 2015 which resulted in 4,000 job cuts in 2016 and 2017, including 340 for these three sites.

Framatome employs 14,000 people world-wide.
