EDF Energy is at the heart of the UK’s new nuclear build programme. The nuclear power stations we plan to build will be the first in a new generation. So a career in this area is a truly unique opportunity – an opportunity to be at the forefront of new nuclear, and to enjoy a long and fruitful career helping us deliver the first nuclear power stations in the UK for twenty years.

The first station to be built would be Hinkley Point C, Somerset, sited next to Hinkley Point A and B stations. This will be followed by two new reactors at Sizewell C in Suffolk. Together these will form one of the biggest construction projects in Europe and they offer the chance to gain invaluable experience working with the latest reactor technology.

Throughout the initial development and construction phase, opportunities will focus on project managers, electrical, mechanical, control & instrumentation engineers and specialists. In the longer term, we also want to hear from nuclear operational experts, security professionals (for both information and nuclear security), quality assurance, quality control and safety case professionals as well as highly skilled procurement experts.

In addition to the above, we will be recruiting for roles within our support functions, such as HR and Finance. Please see these areas of the site for more information and available roles. 


  • Hinkley Point C – building and commercial launch of two UK-EPR Reactors over the next decade.
  • Sizewell C – the building and commercial launch of two UK-EPR reactors at Sizewell C in Suffolk


Training opportunities will be available dependent on specific job roles but will cover a number of specialisms that are required for this nuclear new build, major infrastructure, project.

What we are looking for

Opportunities in nuclear new build are exceptionally rewarding and challenging. These are not standard 9-to-5 roles – you will be critical to the success of a major development in the UK energy market and you’ll need to be able to rise to the challenge. In return, you’ll be able to take your place at the leading edge of new nuclear in Europe.


Hinkley Point C in Somerset and Sizewell C in Suffolk are two locations associated, but not restricted to, NNB projects. You may be located in any other of our offices while working on these projects, depending on your role.
