Project Management and Consultancy Overview

The Chief Information Office (CIO) at EDF Energy is a key area of the Corporate Steering Functions – the area responsible for building an effective organisation, running efficient and sustainable IT Operations and delivering high performing internal consultancy services and change delivery. 

The CIO is made up of two teams; ESAC and IT Operations.


Enterprise, IT Strategy, Architecture & Change (ESAC) provide IT Strategy and Planning, Enterprise Architecture, Business Consultancy and Change as well as Programme and Project Delivery (Enterprise & CSF).

It’s up to the ESAC function to understand the business plans for each Business Unit, before working in the particular function.

The teams

Our team members are the experts and consultants who work alongside the business and help them to deliver their projects. As a Business Partner, a role with many levels, you will work in partnership with various Business Units to ensure they have what they need to achieve their goals, whether that’s skills, expertise or IT systems.

In addition to the main ‘Business Partner structure’, there is also a Portfolio team who looks after the projects that all the business partners are involved in, and a team of Work Stream Leaders who help to make business processes as lean and efficient as possible.


As part of the Project Management function, you’ll be trained up on project management at EDF Energy through the EEPW (EDF Energy Project Way) programme and will be fully supported as you work towards key qualifications within your role – qualifications like Prince 2 and LEAN.

What we look for

When it comes to our Business Partners (ESAC), we look for professionals with impressive skill and knowledge of everything from business analysis, research and project management, to IT Strategy, Architecture and Security. Because we’re working with the new operating model, a versatile and agile way of working is also essential.

Joining us, you’ll need to strive for best in class in everything you do. Because it’s not all about project delivery. It’s also about innovation and collaboration – a culture that really underpins our Sharing Days.

As part of a geographically dispersed team, Sharing Days allow everyone within the function to get together and spend a day talking about ideas, new ways of working and how they could be introduced across the business.


With sites in Crawley, Hove, Bexleyheath, Exeter, Plymouth and Barnwood, the nature of the business function means that many team members will be mobile.
