HPC Excellence Awards 2019 – Faithful+Gould Apprentice Wins Rising Star Award

Teresa Osgood
Kristi Keedus, a Faithful+Gould Commercial Apprentice at EDF has won the Rising Star Gold Award at EDF’s HPC Excellence Awards 2019 for her exceptional performance as an apprentice on Hinkley Point C (HPC).

Kristi is an integral member of HPC’s Responsible Design Team who manages the professional services of the project design.  She was commended for contributing to all parts of project delivery including working alongside internal and external shareholders to manage the communication flow and ensure completion of work by the deadline set by the client.

On winning the award Kristi said:  “I’m thrilled to win this award, it especially means a lot to have been nominated by my line manager Emma Griffith-Yates who is a fantastic role model, mentor and leader, and who selflessly goes the extra mile to support her team.”

Kristi started her journey on the EDF Commercial Apprenticeship Scheme just over a year ago when she was one of only eight candidates selected for the intake for 2018, against 1161 applicants. 

The Faithful+Gould sponsored Scheme, in collaboration with HPC and the University of West of England (UWE), has been running since 2017 and to date, has employed five apprentices across three intake years who work alongside other apprentices employed directly by EDF. All apprentices attend UWE on a day release or block study basis and when not at UWE, undertake a six month block of work experience in defined work areas (whether in Faithful+Gould or HPC)
