This is an exciting time for the energy industry and as part of our Internship Programme you’ll be at the forefront of innovation as we build a sustainable future for our business and our customers.

Commercial Internships

At EDF we want to be our customers’ energy partner of choice. We aim to deliver fair value and a great experience for our customers and, in an ever-changing world with new technologies; the opportunities to deliver this are endless.

Over the course of the Internship, you’ll get a deep understanding of our organisation and the industry we operate in. Our programme offers an excellent opportunity to gain insights into life and work at EDF, whilst receiving a salary of £16,500 (pro rata) and a competitive benefits package.

That experience, together with the skills you’ll develop while you’re with us, will prove invaluable when you’re back at university. And who knows? When you graduate, it could determine your next move.

Kiaya Pandya's experience, Blue Lab intern

EDF Energy offers an exciting insight into the energy sector, from generation through wholesale markets to customer service. As someone who aims to find a career in renewable energy, this broad overview, and variety of experience, has allowed me to grow my understanding of this diverse environment. My role involves researching, planning, developing and trailing new projects with the aim of rolling out the solutions we develop to the wider business. I have built a Facebook chat bot and am developing structures for a potential future app. I have been encouraged me to meet as many people, in as many different disciplines as possible, to help me gain a deeper, holistic view of the organisation. I have been sent to various offices and sites to talk with professionals in roles I am aiming towards. It was brilliant to get such an in-depth and personal insight into the world of offshore generation and R&D.
