At EDF Energy, we’re on a journey to change the way people use energy for generations to come. Producing low carbon energy is what we do best. And right now, our eight existing nuclear sites generate 9,000 megawatts per year through various reactors, avoiding emissions of over 40m tonnes of carbon dioxide. That’s the equivalent of taking about 60% of cars off our roads.

Working at one of our nuclear plants means being part of a stable and tight knit team. With safety the number one priority, everyone works in partnership to ensure the fleet remains safe and reliable. You’ll be working with proven working processes and you’ll enjoy a good work/life balance, making sure you are always rested and able to carry out your role as well as you can. And there’s plenty of scope too. Because longer term, you could get involved in our New Build programme – one of Europe’s largest construction projects.


Keeping your skills up to date is essential, and so EDF Energy offers continuous opportunities to develop. In addition to the standard EDF Energy induction training, there are also opportunities to take on additional duties in addition to your standard role. Qualifications are open to everyone and it’s up to you to decide how much you’d like to take on and how far you want to go in your role.

What we are looking for

As well as engineers, we also look for operating technicians, mechanical and electrical fitters, planners, project managers, project leads. We have opportunities for electrical and mechanical engineers, control and instrumentation engineers and specialists within areas such as safety, maintenance and operations. Your background could have been gained in nuclear, but also in any other highly regulated and process driven industry, such as oil and gas.
