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 team and work on some of the most exciting projects in the UK, whilst being at the forefront of the UK’s climate change agenda and energy policy. 

This is an exciting opportunity for you to join EDF and be part of our mission in helping Britain achieve net zero. Initially supporting the Hinkley Point C (HPC) project, your career with us could lead you next to our sister project in Suffolk, Sizewell C (SZC) in the future. Both are mega infrastructure Nuclear New Build projects where each, when completed, will provide low carbon electricity for 6 million homes for 60 years in the UK. The SZC project has obtained planning approval and is seeking financing with a view to start construction in 2024, whilst HPC is currently under construction.

You'll lead the delivery of the agreed scope within your Area, principally accountable for ensuring, through the leadership of Multi-Disciplined Teams, the successful coordinated delivery across the sub-area lifecycle of the design, procurement, construction and commissioning sequences and activities required to deliver the HPC schedule.


This’ll be achieved by leading and managing the relationships with our supply chain to ensure a constructive relationship is maintained throughout the lifecycle of the project, identifying and anlalysing project schedule risks and managing the interfaces to the other elements of the programme.

The Skills

You’ll bring proven extensive experience in delivering major projects within a technically complex and dynamic environment with a good working knowledge of NEC or FIDIC contract arrangements, along with the ability to demonstrate strong management skills including project management, financial management, change management and facilitation. 


You'll also be proficient in the use of estimating scheduling, programming and risk tools. Your technical expertise will allow you to understand and communicate complex technical ideas to a range of audiences. 

If the above sounds like you then we’d love to hear from you!
