Strengths-based assessment

We believe you perform your best at work when you’re doing something you’re good at and you enjoy, and our strengths-based assessments are designed to bring out the best in you.

For people starting their career, the strengths approach explores what motivates and energises you, rather than focusing on your experience.

Diversity and Inclusion

At EDF, everyone’s welcome. It’s a powerful statement of our intent to make sure we’re about the people who work with us – a rich and unique mix of backgrounds and experiences that’s vital to shaping a strong and fresh-thinking organisation like ours.

At EDF we will not tolerate any behaviour that does not uphold our Everyone’s Welcome vision.
