The Opportunity


Are you 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 Sizewell C (SZC) team and work on one of the most exciting projects in the UK, whilst being at the forefront of the UK’s climate change agenda and energy policy.  The SZC Project is a ~£20bn nuclear new build project in Suffolk which is currently seeking planning approval and financing from HMG and investors, with a view to start construction in 2022. When completed, it will provide dependable electricity to 6 million homes for 60 years, which along with renewables, will support EDF’s objective to help Britain achieve Net Zero by 2050.

We have several opportunities for Quality professionals to join Sizewell C, playing a key part in developing and implementing the Quality strategy throughout the project.  

You’ll be joining the Project Delivery Organisation (PDO), which is an integral part of SZC, responsible for managing end-to-end delivery (EPCC: Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Commissioning) of the plant, ensuring projects are delivered safely, to quality, on time and within cost. 

Our teams are set up to work flexibly, therefore you don’t have to live in London or the South East. If you’re able to travel to the office to collaborate with your team and stakeholders when required, you can be based anywhere in the UK. We provide a full suite of IT equipment to ensure that our employees can work from home comfortably and effectively. 

The Role

  • Supporting Project Managers to deliver their scope of work “right first time” 
  • Designing, developing and implementing quality strategy for the PDO 
  • Ensuring Quality objectives are delivered
  • Ensuring the overall quality planning and implementation of quality arrangements
  • Reporting on the quality performance of Delivery Teams and Supply Chain
  • Ensuring that supply chain organisations comply with contract quality requirements
  • Ensuring that quality issues are resolved without compromising quality or nuclear safety
  • Identifying opportunities for quality improvement, supporting their implementation and making recommendations accordingly

The Skills


You’ll have a background as a Quality Engineer, Quality Lead, or something similar ideally with experience on working on a large infrastructure project. 


We’re looking for multiple individuals who can demonstrate:

  • Degree qualified in an engineering or science related discipline or equivalent 
  • Extensive experience within the UK regulatory environment
  • Expert knowledge of Quality Systems - ISO 9001, etc
  • Strong stakeholder management experience 




  • Experience of regulatory and external stakeholder engagement
  • Experience and technical knowledge of nuclear safety design and quality management 
  • Experience of working with Regulators within a dynamic environment


If that all sounds like you, then we’d love to hear from you! We also have a full job description available upon applying.
