Our selection process is designed to get the best out of you, while helping you see if we’re the right company for you as you progress. Here are the five stages, followed by some handy advice to help you get your application right.
When you’ve chosen the right scheme for you, start by registering with our application system and completing our online application. It asks for some key information (contact details, qualifications, work experience, your motivation for applying to EDF Energy) plus some competency-based questions to give us an early idea of how well you might get on working here.
Our recruitment team will need to verify the information you give us in order to progress your application, so please answer truthfully, accurately and fully. Please also note that we can’t accept CVs.
If we like the look of your application, we’ll ask you to complete some online numerical and logical reasoning tests. Bear in mind that you might find yourself taking these tests again under more controlled conditions as part of stage 4, so this is good preparation for you as well as being insightful for us.
It’s not always easy to convey your best qualities and experiences in an online form. Get through the online stages and you’ll have the chance to tell us more about yourself during a short telephone interview. As well as giving more evidence of the skills and qualities we’re looking for, you’ll be able to show us you’ve given careful thought to your career choice.
Impress us over the phone and you’ll be invited to our assessment centre. Here you’ll take part in various exercises designed to show us whether you have the behaviours to be a hit on our Graduate Programmes or Industrial Placements. We’ll get to see how well you approach tasks, deal with issues and work with others. You’ll get to learn more about us, our culture, our people and our programmes.
If everything goes well through these stages, we’ll make you an offer as soon as possible after the assessment centre. If you accept, congratulations on the official start of a very exciting and rewarding career with EDF Energy.
