Overview

Whatever we need, whenever we need it, our Supply Chain team deliver. Sourcing all goods and services in the most cost effective way, they have a huge part to play in maximising value and supporting ambitions for EDF Energy. They also keep the customer central to everything they do – making sure we have the resources to go above and beyond their high expectations, and always in a safe and ethical manner.

To keep up with the pace of our growing company, we’re moving towards end to end accountability of procurement contract and supplier relationship management. By appointing one main point of contact to look after the entire lifecycle, it not only improves supplier performance and helps the business deliver without wasting a penny, it gives our employees the opportunity to step up and really develop in their career.

Training

Whether you’re joining us as a graduate fresh out of university, or as an experienced Supply Chain Specialist from a similar background, we’ll provide you with all the training you could need through our professional development channel – allowing you to develop your skills to the EDF Energy standard and structure.

A key part of this is working towards the appropriate level of your Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply (CIPS) certification. Graduates will receive hands-on training, while training for the more experienced joiners will be more computer or workshop based. Equipped with the necessary theoretical knowledge, you will then work with your fellow colleagues and other professionals to develop that knowledge and apply it to real world situations.

Working here

When it comes to our Supply Chain team, we look for people with true initiative and the ability to work in a structured environment. People ready to develop strategies, build relationships and secure cost saving contracts. Joining us, you can expect expert training and support as you work towards an external accreditation. And travelling the length and breadth of the country experiencing life across the different units, you’ll have the opportunity to test the water before choosing an area to specialise in.
