Powering future generations
Great news for graduate engineers as EDF Energy announces its new Nuclear Engineer Development Programme.
EDF, together with British Energy, is one of the largest energy companies in the country and is looking to expand into nuclear energy. Starting this year the programme is open to engineers and scientists of all sexes and ages who want to develop their skills and experience within the nuclear sector, or for engineers who want to make the move to a career in nuclear energy.
New opportunities are available to engineering students with vacancies for 25 qualified engineers as the company aims to expand on its existing recruitment programme. The project welcomes graduates of nuclear science, physics, materials science, maths, chemistry or engineering, and those with experience as an engineer.
Andy Spurr manager director for Existing Nuclear states: ‘This is a fantastic opportunity for engineers who work in other industries to be part of one of the country’s most exciting and important developments which will help ensure we all continue to benefit from a low carbon, affordable, and secure electricity future.’
The project has been born out of the combination of the EDF Energy and British Energy to form one of the UK’s largest energy companies. Eva Eisenschimmel, EDF Energy Chief Officer, notes "As part of EDF, the world’s largest and most experienced nuclear power generator, there can be few better places for engineers to develop their careers."
