#WeAreEDF 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. As we are leading the transition to a cleaner, low emission electric future, tackling climate change and helping Britain achieve net-zero. 


A new opportunity has arisen for a Safety Case Engineer to join the Structural Integrity Branch (SIB) of the Nuclear Analysis function within EDF UK's Technical Client Organisation (TCO).


TCO will provide EDF UK with the technical knowledge and expertise required to support new nuclear build projects, operating stations and decommissioning sites. The Structural Integrity Branch will initially focus on providing this support to Hinkley Point C (HPC), with an increasing role in supporting Sizewell C (SZC). SIB will enact the client's duties to specify, understand and verify the application of the plant’s Safety Case requirements, ensuring the Structural Integrity Safety Case is not compromised during the design, procurement, erection and operational phases.
