Apprenticeships with EDF Energy

The EDF Energy Apprenticeships scheme offers roles in Engineering and also Nuclear. EDF Energy is the largest producer of low-carbon electricity in the UK. The company currently operates several nuclear power plants in the UK. These include sites in Scotland, Somerset, the North West, the Lake District and Suffolk.

EDF Energy is also building a new generation of nuclear power station at Hinkley Point C in Somerset. Once complete, this new power station will produce enough electricity to power more than 6 million homes. EDF Energy is also working on proposals to build two more nuclear power stations in the UK. If approved, these would mean new reactors at existing EDF Energy sites at Sizewell in Suffolk and Bradwell in Essex.

EDF Energy is committed to take on 1000 new apprentices at the Hinkley Point C site. As of November 2019, EDF Energy had taken on more than 500 new apprentices at the Hinkley site. Large numbers of new apprentices will also be needed at the Sizewell C and Bradwell B sites when approved.
