Information Technology Operations

We live in a digital world – and, at EDF Energy, our IT team makes sure we’re always switched on. Information Technology drives everything we do, making sure our offices always run safely and smoothly so we can keep providing energy to the nation. The Chief Information Office set and deliver the IT strategic direction, while IT Operations work hands-on to make sure our systems and network are strong and secure.

Becoming part of our team

We’re looking for people that can bring both an IT background and commercial understanding to our team. Individuals with both an interest in Information Technology and how our business operates that can combine the two to support our success.

Whatever level you join at, and whatever team you join, we’ll provide you with plenty of opportunities to develop your skills and work towards formal qualifications, from ITIL certification to Prince 2 and LEAN and more. If you’re part of the Project Management function, you’ll be trained up on project management at EDF Energy through the EEPW (EDF Energy Project Way) programme.
