The Opportunity

Are you excited by the opportunity to have a strong influence on the direction, strategy and delivery of a fast-paced project within a maturing organisation? Do you want to support the development of a new modern standard safety case for the first new build UK Nuclear Power Station in decades?  Are you someone who takes personal ownership and accountability for the work you do? Are you passionate about solving complex problems and driving pragmatic solutions? Are you a proactive self-starter with a questioning attitude? Are you known for your eye for detail? 

If you are looking for a career which is rewarding, at the cutting edge of project development and where you can really make a difference, come and join our expanding Hinkley Point C (HPC) or Sizewell C (SZC) team. Work on one of the largest and most exciting projects in the UK, whilst being at the forefront of the UK’s climate change agenda and energy policy. When completed, each of these projects will provide dependable electricity to 6 million homes over 60 years, which along with renewables, will support Britain to achieve Net Zero by 2050.

The Role

The Design Authority (DA), as part of the licensee organisation, is responsible for developing the nuclear safety case and maintaining its integrity throughout the full lifecycle of the nuclear power plant.

As an experienced Safety Case Engineer in DA, you will play an important role in developing the safety case and provide technical leadership in resolving challenging issues to support the constructing, commissioning and operation of the new reactors.  You will have opportunities to gain experience and work in a variety of different aspects of the safety case from developing the main Safety Report through to safety justification to support design modification.  In your role you will be supported by and need to engage with a variety of disciplines within the wider organisation (Nuclear Analysis, PWR Technology, Construction, Commissioning and Operations) as well as the designers/suppliers oversea and internal/external regulators. 

This is an excellent role if you are keen to apply your experience to a nuclear energy context and join the Technical Client Organisation (TCO), EDF’s centre of technical and licensing excellence supporting the new, future and existing fleet of nuclear power stations.
