If so, join EDF as an Environmental Arrangements Specialist, and you’ll join one of the most exciting and ambitious projects within EDF.

At Hinkley Point C (HPC), we are building two new nuclear reactors, the first in a new generation of nuclear power stations in the UK.

HPC’s reliable low-carbon electricity will help Britain achieve Net Zero and protect the environment from the threat of climate change. It is an essential part of a mix with wind and solar that will allow Britain to electrify its transport, homes and businesses without depending on fossil fuels.

Our Environment Team is part of the Safety and Regulation Directorate within EDF Energy’s Nuclear New Build programme, working on the Hinkley Point C project.

As an Environmental Arrangements Specialist, you will be responsible for working closely with other teams across the business to further develop, maintain and support the implementation of the environmental management system alongside other health, safety and quality systems to deliver an effective integrated management system.

This is an excellent opportunity for you to join a diverse and complex environment, managing a significant environmental infrastructure project. Without nuclear, Britain won’t kick the fossil fuel dependency.
