EDF EPR Engineering UK (EPR-E) is a subsidiary of Edvance, which is a joint venture between EDF and Framatome, established in 2018 in charge of the design and the realisation of nuclear islands for new projects in France and worldwide.
In particular, EPR-E is responsible for the design and construction of the nuclear island for Hinkley Point C (HPC) project and preparing the design replication and engineering activities for the Sizewell C (SZC) Project.
For the SZC Project, work on the replication strategy of HPC and some early design studies are already underway and being delivered and managed from both France and UK

Due to our ongoing growth, we are currently looking to recruit for the role of Nuclear Radiological and Environment Lead.
