Supply Chain Graduate


A career that will deliver change. Together, we can help Britain achieve net zero.

Join our Nuclear Supply Chain Graduate programme where you’ll experience different areas of Supply Chain, in both Nuclear Operations (Operational Nuclear Power Plants) and in Hinkley Point C (construction of the New Nuclear Power Plant). Make an immediate impact, powering the nation today, whilst helping to build a sustainable energy future for tomorrow.

"During my scheme training I was presented with endless opportunities to expand my knowledge and skills in all areas of the HPC Supply Chain. This has allowed me to gain experience in aspects such as procurement, contract administration, forecasting contract costs and Contractor Relationship Management, all whilst being involved in such a unique, large-scale project. This has provided me with a very good foundation as I now begin my career as a Commercial Manager at HPC." Jasmin, Commercial Manager HPC



What is the Nuclear Supply Chain Graduate Scheme?

Embark on a transformative two-year training programme, where you’ll see how a wide range of suppliers provide works, goods and services to support the safe construction, operation and defueling of our nuclear power stations. How do we select and develop them to ensure we deliver to our Safety, Quality, Time and Cost targets? That is part of the job of our Supply Chain teams.

You’ll be exposed to Supply Chain’s work, ensuring continual improvement in a major infrastructure construction project and nuclear operating context, as well as giving you an opportunity to understand wider strategic business challenges.



Pay, culture and benefits:


  • Salary of £33,000, market-leading pension scheme and annual performance bonus
  • 28 days’ annual leave
  • Flexible benefits package
  • Wellbeing, physical and mental health support services 


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.

Training, development and support for you:

We’re passionate about your development and offer a tailored training path that will help develop your skills, knowledge and behaviours, both during the scheme and in your future career.

Completing rotations within Supply Chain teams across Nuclear Operations and Hinkley Point C, means you’ll gain an insight into the operation of a large utility company as well as commercial and supplier/Supply Chain management in a highly-regulated business undergoing significant transformation.

You’ll develop your strategic and operational skills as you support the delivery of tangible benefits to the organisation through live projects.

During the programme, you’ll work towards gaining a Level 4 qualification in Procurement and Supply practices through the Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply (CIPS), an industry wide recognised qualification. This qualification will provide you with a broad understanding, tools and insight to best practice in procurement and supply that you’ll be able to apply immediately in your workplace at EDF. You’ll be in good hands as the Nuclear Operations Supply Chain team has held the Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply (CIPS) Procurement Excellence Programme award at the highest level of Platinum since 2013!
