Work for EDF Energy - here's what it's about

Be the one to deliver it.
Hinkley Point C is a one-of-a-kind construction. Based on the north Somerset Coast, it’s the first nuclear power station to be built in Britain in a generation. This is a project of unrivalled scale, complexity and impact: once completed, it will be capable of delivering safe, secure and affordable low carbon energy to six-million homes (that’s 7% of the UK’s electricity) for more than sixty years.
Now we’re looking for talented, ambitious Project Managers - from Assistant to Senior positions - who can help us to secure the UK’s energy future. This is what one of our Planning Leads - Nicola - has to say about her experience of the project so far:
“I’ve been with EDF Energy for 17 years and even when I started as a graduate, this was the kind of project that attracted me. Everything on Hinkley Point C is new. I’ve never had such a hard job, but I love it, it’s so far from the humdrum 9-5. It’s that blank canvas element; the opportunity to create something new.
You can’t get any bigger than the biggest construction project in Europe. It’s exciting, dynamic and you learn so much. I’m also a mum of two, but I can strike a balance between family life and this project. I was given lots of training to bring my engineering expertise into a Project Manager role, so I want to show that technical roles are not just for blokes and engineers. Last year, I even won a prize for Women in construction in engineering.”
This is it.
If you’re a fiercely ambitious individual with Project Management acumen, you could be the one to lead and deliver one of the Britain’s most exciting projects. To find out more - and apply - click here.
