Our culture…

Rachel Stimpson, Senior Security Analyst says: “I owe my career to EDF as I was given the chance to completely retrain in Cyber Security and it is the best thing I ever did. I have a challenging and fulfilling work load with great training and development opportunities, I also appreciate the work life balance and benefits that EDF provide. As a busy working mother, it is invaluable to me that I am able to work flexibly when I need it so I don’t miss my children’s school events. I find the benefits really handy for saving money and I am accumulating voucher points to help with next year’s Christmas presents already! Our ability to work flexibly has allowed us to retain an excellent Analyst who needed to move up North and has provided another Analyst with the means to visit his home country for an extended break without using his entire annual leave balance to do so. EDF has embraced the needs of a modern workforce which makes it an exceptional employer and one I personally couldn’t recommend highly enough.”

At EDF, everyone’s welcome. We strive to create an inclusive and diverse environment where everyone has a voice and where you feel confident being yourself.  We’re committed to equality, diversity, inclusion.

We’d like our future workforce to have an equal gender balance, represent a broad mix of people from minority ethnic backgrounds, LGBTQ+, those with a disability and supporting social mobility.  

We’re an equal opportunity and disability confident employer. If you feel comfortable sharing with us that you have a disability, you meet the minimum criteria for the role, we will guarantee you an interview.

We’ll value the difference you bring and give you opportunities to thrive and succeed and to feel you belong.
