We proudly work together to champion a low carbon lifestyle and collaborate widely in our search for innovations to achieve more.

We’re about the people who work with us – a rich and unique mix of backgrounds and experiences that’s vital to shaping a strong and fresh-thinking organisation like ours. Whoever you are and wherever you come from, we’ll embrace the
difference you bring and give you opportunities to thrive and succeed.

We are EDF – Everyone’s Welcome

A great place to work, where everyone is welcome. We create the right environment where people feel able to bring their whole selves to work.  Whilst working together there is mutual trust and appreciation created through the building of meaningful relationships with one another. Everyone is able to get the most from their work and the workplace, and in return, give their best.

It’s as simple as that.

What projects / schemes / initiatives to support women’s recruitment, retention and progression in STEM are EDF involved in?

Sizewell C Gender Balance Network

Sizewell C, a proposed new nuclear power station in Suffolk, has the potential to generate the reliable low carbon electricity the country needs for decades to come. It will also make a lasting positive difference to the economy in the east of England.

The Sizewell Gender Balance Network promotes gender balance in the industry and supports the target of 40% women in nuclear by 2030. We very much welcome the support and information WISE can offer us on our journey.

Sizewell C has signed up to the Nuclear Sector Deal target to encourage more women into the sector through supporting a 40% female workforce and 50/50 in apprentice recruitment. Sizewell C gives us an exciting opportunity for more women to join the amazing women in our business already and to develop a team which reflects society – balanced.
