Career Area:  Project Management & Business Change

Assistant Project Manager

Hinkley Point C, Bridgwater.


Do you want to be part of one of the most exciting and challenging projects within EDF, as we continue to lead the rebirth of nuclear in the UK?


If so, we have an exciting opportunity for you to kickstart your Project Management career.



The Opportunity…

At Hinkley Point C (HPC) we are building two new nuclear reactors, the first in a new generation of nuclear power stations in the UK, providing low carbon electricity for around six million homes.


We are looking for an Assistant Project Manager to join our team managing the supply, transport, installation and testing of equipment that directly supports nuclear operations.


You will join a small team of professional project managers with direct responsibility for the installation of key parts of the project – the reactor pressure vessel, steam generators, coolant pumps and pressuriser. You will work with an expert team of contractors to ensure that the installation is completed on time, but most importantly to the very high-quality requirements we need.


As an Assistant Project Manager, you will support the Project Managers to ensure the effective delivery of activities in the programme to required safety, quality, time and cost targets, while recognising and managing the impacts of the programme on the wider Project.


This is an excellent opportunity for you to be part of building one of the largest, most complex projects in Europe; something vital to the country’s future energy needs.



Pay, benefits and culture…


Alongside a salary of £35,000 - £45,000 (negotiable depending on experience), we are delighted to offer a variety of flexible benefits to support our people in their everyday lives.

At EDF, everyone’s welcome. We strive to create an inclusive and diverse environment where everyone has a voice and where you feel confident being yourself.  We’re committed to equality, diversity, and inclusion.  We’d like our future workforce to have an equal gender balance, represent a broad mix of people from minority ethnic backgrounds, LGBTQ+, those with a disability and supporting social mobility.  


We’re committed to flexibility, so if you are looking for part-time hours or a job share, please highlight this on your application.

We’re a disability confident employer and we’ll do all we can to help with your application, making adjustments as you need.

We’ll value the difference you bring and offer opportunities for you to thrive and succeed. 


What you’ll be doing…


  • Working with and support the Project Managers to develop the scope to be delivered within the contract and manage and define interfaces with other elements of the programme.
  • Maintaining effective communications with relevant stakeholders.
  • Driving the delivery of the contract or package activities to ensure they are delivered safely on time, to budget, meeting business & technical requirements.

  • Ensuring that lessons-learnt and knowledge-capture are practiced as business as usual.
  • Establishing and maintaining effective working relationships with all project team members



Who you are…


Your background may include some of the following:

  • Working towards a Professional Qualification in Project Management such as APM PMQ or other recognised qualification.
