Science & Engineering Graduate Scheme

Aimed at engineering and science graduates, this intensive 16-month programme will build your knowledge of all parts of our Generation and Nuclear New Build business. It includes support and training to take care of every aspect of your technical and personal development.

About the Engineering and Science programme

Initially lasting 16 months, the programme gives you an overview of our Central Technical Organisation, Station Engineering, Operations, Maintenance and Technical & Safety functions. Undertaking several intensive attachments in various different locations is quite a challenge, but provides the foundation you need to build your future career in nuclear power.

Working in various UK power stations as well as our Central Technical Organisation in Gloucestershire, you'll learn from some of the world’s leading nuclear power specialists. You'll also begin your journey towards Chartered status with a relevant professional institution. It's a mark of the quality of our programme that eight leading industry associations have given it their accreditation. 

Before you join us, we will help you to identify the department that best suits your skills and interest areas, and also the location where you will ultimately be based; so you will be aware of the role that you will be taking up permanently in the organisation as you work through the programme. 

And you won’t be doing it alone – throughout the scheme you will have the support of your line manager, a recent graduate buddy and a qualified specialist in your area of expertise.  Together, they will help you launch a successful career with EDF Energy.

About you

You'll hold at least a 2:1 Bachelor’s Degree or a 2:2 Postgraduate Degree in a relevant or associated subject.  We offer opportunities for graduates in Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Control & Instrumentation Engineering, Civil Engineering, Material Science & Metallurgy, Maths, Environmental Science and Physics.
