The opportunity

Working in our Security Department, you will be our first point of contact for all who come onto site. With this, we’re looking for you to demonstrate a professional approach for the delivery of the required security standards on a Nuclear Power Station site. As our next security guard, you will offer a polite, communicative and when necessary, directional, and authoritative presence. For this position, we would look for you to strive and deliver work to a high standard, implementing a highly motivated work ethic.

If you feel like this is the role for you, we would love to hear from you!

The starting salary for the appointment will be dependent on your existing salary, competence, experiences and qualification. This position also comes with an attractive shift allowance – £10,348 per annum.

With the ability to work alternative shifts, this role offers flexibility with working shift rotations. Your rota will be allocated to yourself weeks in advance, which will allow you the opportunity to enjoy everyday life around your working schedule.

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 would 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
