Hinkley Point C – Hybrid working available 

Join EDF as a Radiological Protection Engineer, and you’ll join one of the most exciting and challenging projects within EDF, as we continue to lead the rebirth of nuclear in the UK.

The Opportunity… 

At Hinkley Point C (HPC) we are building two new nuclear reactors, the first in a new generation of nuclear power stations in the UK providing low carbon electricity for around six million homes.

As a Radiological Protection Engineer, you will be part of a team delivering the Radiological Protection and safety arrangements for the Hinkley Point C (HPC) operational site. This will include developing and implementing arrangements that will evolve over time as the project progresses through construction, commissioning and into operations. The work and responsibilities of the Radiological Protection Engineer will evolve as the HPC project progresses through these phases. 

This is an excellent opportunity to develop and influence radiation safety for the first nuclear power station to be built in the UK in a generation. Training is provided for this role and will be tailored to your previous background and experience. Such training may include secondments to other sites or attending training courses away from Hinkley Point C site.

Pay, benefits and culture…

Alongside a salary from £53,000, we offer a competitive benefits package, including a company pension scheme, a wide range of flexible benefits to suit your lifestyle, and the opportunity to earn bonus.  

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 and 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 a disability confident employer and we’ll do all we can to help with your application, making adjustments as you need.   

We’ll value the difference you bring and offer opportunities for you to thrive and succeed. 


What you’ll be doing…

•    Developing and delivering radiological protection standards, facilities, equipment, and training that ensure compliance with legal and organisational requirements.
•    Providing on-site technical advice to the HPC Site during construction, commissioning, and operations to ensure a high standard of radiological safety is established and maintained.

•    You will be a positive influence in what will be a growing Radiological Protection team and wider operational organisation.


Who you are…

Your background may include some of the following:
•    Degree qualification (or equivalent) in a science-related discipline, or relevant experience in radiation protection.
•    Experience of developing and implementing arrangements to meet the requirements of the Ionising Radiations Regulations.
