Nuclear recruiter Thomas Thor opens London office

Thomas Thor, a global specialist in recruitment, search and workforce consultancy, has opened a London office and appointed two senior leaders.

This follows successive years of growth across the region and a tripling of headcount in the last two years. 

Ben Smith has been appointed European managing director, with Pierre Morvan appointed European business director.

Known for its work across the nuclear sector, advocating for net zero and known for its work across the nuclear sector, the company’s new structure will see Smith manage Thomas Thor’s presence across all aspects of the nuclear industry in the European region, as well as deepening the firm’s engagement with organisations focused on new nuclear and advanced nuclear technology (ANT). He has over 16 years’ experience in the nuclear sector and since joining Thomas Thor in 2016 has led account direction for major nuclear new build programmes and across ANT areas. 

Morvan has played a key role in expanding Thomas Thor’s business across Europe and will now lead on European-wide business strategy, transformation, and the move into key emerging markets.   

For over 12 years, Thomas Thor has supported the global nuclear workforce from offices in Bristol, Cumbria and around the world. “Now is the right time for us to build our presence in London,” said CEO Callum Thomas. “We are engaged in many of the industry discussions about nuclear’s role in the transition to net zero.”

Global operations director James Ball is also now based in London.
