At EDF, everyone’s welcome. It’s a powerful statement of our intent to make sure 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.

The EDF Return to Work programme offers flexible opportunities for returners with additional support to ease the transition and is part of our commitment to recruit from the widest possible pool of talent, making sure that our workforce is a true reflection of our communities and customers.

Whatever the reason for taking a career break, your unique skills and perspectives not only give us a better understanding of customers from all walks of life, but help bring fresh ideas too.

At EDF we’re helping Britain achieve Net Zero by leading the transition to a cleaner, low emission electric future and tackling climate change. We’re the UK’s largest producer of low-carbon electricity, meeting around one-fifth of the country’s demand and supplying millions of customers with electricity and gas.

How the Returner Programme works:

EDF has partnered with Inclusivity to create a programme that will help you get back up to speed in a friendly and welcoming environment.

The programme provides six month paid opportunities for Returners and are available on a 4 or 5 day a week basis. These opportunities will allow you to put to use your past career expertise and to bring yourself back up to speed with the current market. You will be paid at the full market rate for the opportunity you accept. During your six month programme you will be provided with 3 one-to-one Coaching sessions as well as pre-commencement training support. Whilst there is no guarantee, it is the goal of the programme that you will be able to secure a permanent position at the end of the six months. EDF has offices across the UK and embraces a flexible hybrid working culture. The roles on offer have teams based in either London or Hove so the ability to attend meetings in one of these locations is required.
