If so, join us as a Project Manager and you’ll be part of one of the most exciting and ambitious projects within EDF, as we continue to lead the rebirth of nuclear in the UK. 



The Opportunity…

Hinkley Point ‘C’ (HPC) is a vital part of the UK’s future energy strategy. As the first of the UK’s next generation of nuclear power stations, HPC is both of high profile and high complexity.


As a Project Manager in our Conventional Island Area, you will provide leadership 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.  Your role will be to build strong relationships to ensure project success.

Pay, benefits and culture…

Alongside a salary of £55,000 - £65,000 (negotiable depending on experience), we offer a competitive benefits package, including a company pension scheme, a wide range of flexible benefits to suit your lifestyle, and the opportunity to earn bonus. 


At EDF, everyone’s welcome.

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.
