Are you a qualified Engineer looking for your next career opportunity? Are you looking for a career which is rewarding and where you can really make a difference?


If so, join EDF as a Safety Studies and Licensing Support Engineer, and you’ll join one of the most exciting and ambitious projects within EDF.


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.


The Safety Studies Team has to ensure that the HPC design is:
