More detail

The HR and Communications Industrial Placement will support HR Business Partners and in their partnerships with designated line managers, helping to provide professional advice and direction, commercial HR solutions and operational support. Industrial Placements may also support Communications Consultants in the delivery of internal communications with staff members, and the building of relationships with the local community via effective communications.

By the end of the year, you should know for sure whether this is the company you want to build your career in. If it is, you’ll soon have the chance to start by applying for a place on an EDF Energy Graduate Programme.


Most of what you learn will be on the job, with support from your mentor and the teams you work in. Some Industrial Placements come with opportunities for further technical training as needed.


It’s worth noting that we don’t offer relocation help for Industrial Placements. So if the placement you’re applying for isn’t in your local area, you’ll need to be able to cover the cost of moving to and living there yourself. This Industrial Placement is based in:

  • Power station - Torness

    East Lothian

  • Dungeness Power Station


  • Heysham 1 & 2 Power Stations


  • Hartlepool Power Station

    Co Durham
