About EDF Energy
Graduate opportunities with EDF Energy
Being a graduate at EDF Energy is all about pushing yourself further and applying the kind of fresh, creative thinking that’ll define the UK energy industry for generations to come. Our challenge is to deliver both low carbon energy and a great customer experience. And for you that equates to some of the most technically challenging, professionally inspiring and personally rewarding opportunities imaginable.
Exploring your options
You may think the majority of our graduates come from an engineering background. But there are plenty of alternative routes for those whose talents lie in other areas. From the technical challenges of building, maintaining and decommissioning nuclear power stations to the commercial, logistical and human aspects of managing a fast growing and rapidly changing business, few organisations offer the scale or scope of opportunity you’ll find here. We have seven graduate programmes in all:
- Nuclear Science and Engineering
- Business Analysts
- Business Information Systems Analysts
- Human Resources
- Industrial Placements
Whatever programme you join and wherever you find yourself working, there‘ll be plenty to get your teeth into from the day you start. As your career progresses, it’ll take you into lots of new and exciting areas. And every step of the way you’ll be contributing to a future of sustainable energy that will benefit everyone in the UK.
Reaping the rewards
To our minds, the exciting journey we’re on is the biggest and best reason to join us. But it’s certainly not the only one. Whichever programme you join, you’ll find our generous benefits package is designed to recognise the individual talents you bring and reward the unique contribution you make to the business.
Seeing the full picture
Perhaps more important, however, are the opportunities you’ll have to work on different projects with different teams in different locations. Not only will this give you a clear understanding of our organisation and how the different functions within it work together, but also a chance to strike up your own relationships and build a valuable network of contacts right across the business.
Getting better all the time
We’re big on personal development too. Throughout your time on the programme and beyond we’ll give you all the resources you need and plenty of encouragement to carry on learning and boost your professional knowledge. Support towards a relevant professional qualification is all part of that commitment.
Making a bigger impact
As an industry, we have some exciting challenges ahead. So if you’re looking for a gentle introduction to the world of work, this may not be the place for you. If, on the other hand, you’ve got big plans for your future and you’re keen to make an impact from the day you start, you can find out more and get your adventure underway here
