We're celebrating #INWED22 by shining a spotlight on some of the incredible female #InventorsandInnovators at EDF who are helping Britain achieve Net Zero.
Louise is our Defueling Project Manager at our Hunterston power station. She's embarking on a 'first' for our nuclear fleet in the UK by overseeing the defueling of the plant.
Anna is our Principal Engineering Manager for the Competency Centres at EDF Renewables. She joined us after a career in the defence sector, motivated by the challenge of helping Britain achieve Net Zero.
Nicola is Head of Delivery Integration at Hinkley Point C. She knew from the age of 12 that engineering was the only job for her and her 23-year career at EDF has given her the chance to live abroad and explore different areas of the business.
"One of the things that drives me is impact"
Rebecca Vickery is the Lead Data Scientist in our Customers’ business. Find out what motivates her to #PowerTheChange and the initiatives she's launched to encourage more female engineers to pursue a career in data science.
What inspires our female engineers?
Discover more about the four female engineers we’re profiling this International Women in Engineering Day and what motivates them to turn up to work every day.
"You can be creative as an engineer”
Louise is committed to challenging any stereotypes in engineering – and helping young girls realise that being a doctor isn’t the only career route open to you if you enjoy science at school.
"Doing something to help tackle climate change inspires me”
Anna switched from defence to renewables as she was inspired by the challenge of helping Britain achieve Net Zero. She’s now implementing a STEM programme to inspire other women to follow a career in engineering too.
Rebecca is a huge advocate of encouraging more women to work in engineering. She’s passionate about using data science to improve people’s lives and tackle one of the biggest problems our planet faces: climate change.
Work is just one part of our lives and at EDF we offer a generous benefits package and the opportunity to explore flexible working. Curious about driving an electric vehicle (EV)? Take advantage of our EV purchase scheme. Or perhaps you prefer two wheels, in which case, have a look at our bike to work initiative. Whatever your interests, our rewards package is here to support your wellbeing.
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.
“Being able to work somewhere where I can use my skills in a context that is able to help climate change really appealed to me” Tina, Data and Tech Graduate
We’re a responsible business and proud to be Britain’s biggest generator of zero carbon electricity. With size, age and experience, we believe we can do even more. Come and join the team and together, we’ll help Britain achieve Net Zero.
