Technical, Engineering and Scientific

From our homes, to our businesses, to the infrastructure essential to our everyday lives, generating energy is a huge responsibility, which is why we need talented engineers and technical minds on our side so we can keep delivering to our customers. From nuclear power stations to coal, gas and renewables, our work covers the whole spectrum of energy sources and the roles we offer are every bit as diverse.

Becoming part of our team

Whether you join us in a technical, engineering or scientific role, you’ll have an interest in energy and a passion for sustainability. And, whatever level you join at, you’ll be provided with the opportunities you need to develop your career. Alongside your EDF Energy induction training, we’ll give you the chance to obtain qualifications, and provide you with increased responsibilities when you’re ready to take them on. Your progress is important to us.

  • Nuclear New Build

    At EDF Energy, we’re building the first new nuclear power station in a generation. As part of our team, you’ll help deliver on this vison – and create a better energy future.

  • Nuclear Generation

    Producing low-carbon electricity is what we do best. Right now, our eight existing nuclear sites have the capacity to generate 9,000 megawatts per year – and they need the support of engineers as dedicated as you to make that figure even bigger.
