The Opportunity


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

As part of our plan to secure a low-carbon energy future, EDF’s Nuclear New Build (NNB) team is leading an ambitious programme to build a fleet of safe, reliable nuclear power stations in the UK, focussed on two new nuclear power stations, the first since Sizewell B in 1995. The first station is under construction at Hinkley Point C in Somerset, and NNB’s ambition is to build a second at Sizewell C in Suffolk. The Sizewell C project is currently in the development phase, with UK public policy; financing; commercial and construction arrangements being established. The intention is to begin construction of the project at the end of 2021. 

The HPC Project is one of Europe’s largest construction projects and the first new nuclear build in the UK within private ownership. SZC looks to replicate this. Unlike HPC which is equity funded, SZC will require a new model of funding that brings the overall risk to construct, operate and decommission for investors down to a level that will attract investment at regulated asset rates of return.

As part of this exciting new project, we have a requirement for an experienced Quality Assurance Manager to define policies and standards for the organisation, and manage the interface for the Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR) creating the conditions of an open, honest and efficient relationship to support successful and timely delivery of the project whilst ensuring quality and related regulatory requirements are met.

The Person


As the Quality Assurance Manager, you will provide expert advice and support to the business on quality assurance systems, particularly to the Project Delivery Organisation, who will execute the quality processes on behalf of the client organisation. 

Main responsibilities:

•    Responsible for strategy and assurance of the IMS, Non-Conformance Process and tools, records, including Lifetime Quality Records and the controlling arrangements for the quality department
•    Direct and manage the Quality Assurance resources and review their outputs prior to dissemination across the project for action
•    Lead and manage the interface and relationship with Regulators (principally ONR) relating to Quality Assurance
•    Delivery, execution and maintenance of relevant processes, including document review and the ongoing oversight and improvement of processes in response to experience and learning
•    Achieving certification in international standards, including ISO9001, 14001, 45001
•    Providing inputs for planning and management of the budget for the Safety Directorate and of the Quality organisation within the Client organisation and workloads including team performance and development, departmental risk management, etc.
•    Provide a means of escalation for quality related issues within the PDO, and assistance with issues that may arise
•    Management of the team resources will include accountability for administrative matters such as budgeting, resourcing, training, nuclear baseline compliance, health & safety, PPE etc.


The Skills


You will be able to demonstrate the following skills/ experience:

•    Significant specialised depth and breadth of expertise in the development and application of Quality Assurance process
•    Extensive experience within the UK regulatory environment, ideally within nuclear or another heavily- regulated industry
•    Strong interpersonal skills with the ability to engage credibly internal and external stakeholders
•    Ability to influence and encourage change of behaviours.
