Supply Chain Graduate Scheme

Ours is an industry that is changing quickly and taking on more and more importance. Climate change, security of supply, the need for new infrastructure – all of these will affect the energy industry in the years to come. But as the largest generator of low-carbon electricity in the UK, EDF Energy is perfectly placed to tackle such issues. This is an open invitation to explore a major business that's growing in size, influence and profile – and explore it fully.

About the Supply Chain programme

Lasting two years, the programme consists of a series of rotations in different areas of Supply Chain, where you'll learn how we manage an annual spend of over £600m in over 50 market areas. 

On-the-job training is diverse and covers everything from supply chain operations to market management, contract management to outage management. Placements are likely to include a spell in Corporate Supply Chain and at our Central Technical Organisation in Gloucester. You will also have the chance to sample life in a nuclear power station.

You will have the opportunity to study for membership of the Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply (CIPS) as well as a range of other courses.  At every stage you'll be mentored by experienced supply chain professionals.

Once you know precisely what we do and how everything fits together, you’ll be in a good position to decide where your skills and ambitions will best fit in. The programme has been designed to expose you to Supply Chain’s work ensuring continual improvement in a nuclear context, as well as giving you an opportunity to understand the wider business.

About you

You'll hold at least a 2:1 in a Business Management, Business Studies, Supply Chain Management or Logistics degree.  You’ll work in a number of different locations, so it’s important that you’re flexible about travelling and living away from home.
