Aztec West, Bristol - with flexibility of working from home, minimum 3 days a week in the office.


Are you a passionate engineer seeking the next stage of your career? Do you have expertise in the EPR engineering process, with a focus on mechanical equipment design and engineering? Do you thrive in a fast-paced environment where each day brings new challenges and opportunities to excel?


If so, join us as a Mechanical Equipment Group Leader and you’ll join one of the most exciting and ambitious projects within EDF, as we continue to lead the rebirth of nuclear in the UK.


The Opportunity...


EDF EPR Engineering UK (EPR-E) established in 2023, is responsible for delivering the design for a number of NI buildings, systems and equipment contracts for the Hinkley Point C EPR Project through an integrated team, support to HPC construction and commissioning activities, and preparing design replication feasibility and engineering activities for the Sizewell C Project. Therefore, a Technical Directorate is being created, responsible for the engineering disciplines and technical expertise required to deliver the different engineering projects through integrated teams in EPR-E.


For the SZC Project, work on the replication strategy and some early design studies are already underway and being delivered and managed from both France and UK.


As an Equipment Group Lead, you will report to the Piping and Equipment Discipline Manager and operationally to the Equipment Managers for the HPC and SZC projects. You will lead and manage a team of Contract Engineering Leads (CELs) and Technical Engineering Leads (TELs) working on equipment contracts for the client. Your responsibilities include ensuring the accurate completion and verification of engineering deliverables, meeting technical requirements, adhering to the project schedule, and respecting the budget allocated by the equipment managers.


Pay, benefits and culture…


Alongside a salary from £75,000, 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 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 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.
