Sellafield has pledged to recruit 10% more women by 2020.

The nuclear plant is backing a national campaign to encourage more women to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and maths.

It's part of the 'Your Life' campaign launched by the chancellor George Osborne. Sellafield Ltd has made three pledges to build upon the various education and training schemes they already have in place.
