Hinkley Point C is the first project of its kind in a generation. Over ten years, EDF Energy will build the first new nuclear power station in the United Kingdom since 1995. One of the largest construction projects in Europe, the new station will, ultimately, secure low-carbon electricity for six-million homes in the UK, and avoid ten-million tonnes of CO2 emissions each year.
To make this happen HPC will involve the procurement, management and integration of over 160 contracts of varying degrees of complexity, involving a diverse international supply chain. Put simply, it’s a project of staggering scale, with unique challenges, and – for the right candidates – an opportunity to embark on a career-defining experience.
To make Hinkley Point C happen, we need Contract Managers. You will manage the high-volume of complex commercial contracts covering everything from civil engineering, process plants and services contracts. The other major infrastructure projects in the UK are civil engineering projects, and follow the blueprint of what came before them. Not us. Hinkley Point C is unique: it needs to span across a range of industries and disciplines to make it happen.
It’s for this reason that we need people with tenacity. Individuals that get excited by the scale and complexity of the challenge ahead of us, with the courage to embark on this fantastic journey. People with the drive and desire needed to alter the landscape of UK energy. If you are CIPS accredited and/or have knowledge of working on an NEC Framework Agreement, you’ll find yourself in good company: building a project this complex and prestigious needs a team that is professional, collaborative and totally committed to the task at hand. Together, you’ll work to build a legacy that stands the test of time.
Hinkley Point C is about investment. That’s why we’ll make sure you are fully trained on the systems and processes, on domestic and international contracts from open to close. You’ll have an ongoing training and development plan, and we’ll support you in attaining professional qualifications. We’re shaping the future of UK energy – and we want you to grow with us.
