Manufacturing Surveillance Engineer
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, EDF EPR Engineering UK 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.
At 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.
For the SZC Project, work on the replication strategy and some early design studies are already underway and being delivered and managed from both France and UK.
For the HPC and SZC project, we are looking to recruit for the role of Manufacturing Surveillance Equipment Engineer.
The UK Manufacturing Control (UKMC) team aims to provide adequate and reactive surveillance on:
- reviewing procurement and manufacturing specs, procedures, welding books… – All the suppliers documents required to begin the manufacturing of equipment,
issuing technical positions on non-conformance reports (NCRs), exemption requests (ERs), technical queries (TQs) that may arise during the manufacturing.
- performing inspections at the suppliers’ facilities during the manufacturing
These activities are achieved to provide confidence to our clients (projects) and to ensure that the manufactured parts and equipment reach the expected level of quality, in accordance with the specified requirements, and can thus be delivered to nuclear sites for installation.
As a Manufacturing Surveillance Equipment Engineer, your day-to-day activities will include:
Drafting of the Surveillance Offers related to the contracts for which UKMC (UK Manufacturing Control) has been mandated to perform the manufacturing surveillance:
- taking part in joint risk analysis with the client’s project and quality teams, the role will make prescriptions of mitigation actions in terms of surveillance activities, regarding:
- manufacturing documentation
- manufacturing operations in-factory
Performing the technical review and acceptance of the manufacturing documents issued by the suppliers:
- technical manufacturing procedures, specifications, welding documents (qualifications, procedures), procedures for NDT, coating, cleaning, packing
- the manufacturing Non-Conformance Reports (NCRs)
- Exemption requests, technical queries, clarifications…
These activities lead to an official technical position that is produced by the Equipment Engineer.

OVERVIEW of UKMC
UKMC was created in November 2021, as part of DI (Industrial Division of EDF Group), to:
get closer to one of DI’s main clients (HPC) and ease the communication on topics regarding surveillance,
enhance the knowledge and control of the UK supply chain,
perform better responsive inspections in the UK,
bring some innovations in the way that the manufacturing surveillance is achieved (with a more collaborative approach with the client),
prepare for Sizewell C and future nuclear programs in the UK.
UKMC team is now part of EDF EPR Engineering UK (EPR-E). Its headquarters are in Bristol (Aztec West). But UKMC staff is present all over the UK: 12 people at end of 2023 (inspectors and engineers mostly), and the team will be growing to 15 in 2024 on the same scope of activity (but might grow larger depending on business development opportunities).
The main competencies of the team are Manufacturing, Materials, Welding and NDTs.
UKMC current scope of work is basically all the manufacturing in the
