Station Visitor Centre Guide

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

We’re looking for Station Visitor Centre Guides to join us at Sizewell B Power Station with a competitive salary and terms and conditions covered by the EDF Personal Contract. The starting salary will be dependent on your existing salary, competence, experience and qualifications.

The Opportunity

This is an exciting, flexible role where you’ll be supporting our work on raising awareness of EDF’s commitment to the highest standards of safety and its contribution to the local community. As an excellent communicator, you’ll be the face and voice of the station. Your customer-focused approach to work will be pivotal in ensuring the best experience for all visitors to the station, whether this is a local school, public servants or local community groups.

It's a dynamic environment where the situation is always changing depending on who may walk through the door, so being flexible to adapt your working style and plans is paramount.

This also applies to your working hours as we are looking for people to work on a flexible part-time contract. On average, we expect you to work between 8 and 16 hours a week, Monday-Friday, although very occasionally we may ask for
support on events happening in the evening or at the weekend. This would always be discussed with your line manager first. Your working pattern will be dependent on demand and business need – we offer flexibility in how we shape these hours and would like this to work both ways!

The Role

As a Station Visitor Centre Guide, you’ll be ensuring the safety and wellbeing of visitors whilst they are on site, so you need to have the confidence to speak and challenge all stakeholders, external or internal, particularly on matters of nuclear safety. You’ll be managing the experience for all levels of seniority and a variety of group sizes.

During visits from education groups, you’ll support and lead on centre activities and station tours. You’ll also take this externally, representing the station through presentations at external events. Working alongside the Visitor Centre Coordinator and the Community Liaison Officer, you’ll promote and manage the reputation of EDF in the local community through a variety of activities and programmes.

The Skills

We’ll need you to demonstrate the following skills and experience:

  • Excellent communication skills, adaptable to all ages and abilities both face to face and virtually
  • Highly motivated and enthusiastic with a passion for STEM subjects
  • Methodical and customer-focused approach to work
  • Friendly, approachable and confident manner
  • Sensitivity to people’s needs and cultural differences
  • Business and commercial awareness
  • Team player with the ability to work well on your own
  • Proficiency in computer skills – Word, Excel and PowerPoint
  • Flexibility in work pattern
  • Full driving licence would be desirable

Competitive Salary and Benefits

At EDF we’re dedicated to offering flexible benefits that support our people across all aspects of their lives. We’re delighted to offer a range of benefits to support our employees’ physical, emotional and financial wellbeing. 
In addition to a competitive salary we offer a company pension scheme, paid holidays and a range of flexible benefits. 

Please let us know if you require flexible working arrangements by highlighting this in your application. The closing date for applications is 25th May 2022.
