A career that will deliver change. Join us and help Britain achieve Net Zero.

Would you like to be part of the Nuclear Decommissioning business?

We’re recruiting for people to join us on the next exciting phase of our Nuclear journey.  We’re offering multiple opportunities for people with knowledge of the Advanced Gas-cooled Reactor (AGR) fuel routes and those who relish project/programme management, working in a commercially-driven environment on major government funding contracts.

The Opportunity

An exciting opportunity has become available to manage delivery of the decommissioning lifetime planning and liability submissions, along with ownership of the financial modelling scenarios, assumptions, uncertainties and risks. The plans are critical to the business viability of EDF Nuclear Generation Ltd (ENGL) and delivery of our nuclear decommissioning requirements under the Nuclear Liabilities Funding Agreement (NLFA).

Delivery of the decommissioning programme relies on a highly complex set of contractual agreements and cost recovery and performance management processes comprising a multi-billion pound Nuclear Liabilities Fund (NLF) liability.  Management of the decommissioning lifetime plans is an important role in driving the success and viability of the ENGL business.

The Role

The Strategy Plans Manager will be required to produce commercially focussed, technically compliant and financially robust plans, working with colleagues in Nuclear Decommissioning, Central Technical Office, HR, Finance, Stations, Supply Chain, Legal and Estates and with the Government client and other stakeholders - including the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy, Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA), Non-NDA Liabilities Assurance and the NLF trustees. These plans include individual programme plans and annually updated integrated plans and costs, which bring together the end-to-end decommissioning lifetime scope and liabilities.  The successful candidate will have responsibility for the following:

  • Delivery and ownership of the lifetime plan submissions under the NLFA.
  • Strategic alignment of the lifetime plans with respect to:
  • Strategy
  • Commercial principles
  • Methodology (as per Decommissioning Plan Submission 2020)
  • Governance
  • Assurance
  • Quality

  • Advice and key input into the critical decisions for the business as the Responsible and Prudent Operator and presentation of the Integrated Plan to governance forums for business monitoring, control, reporting and analysis of results to support business planning and ENGL accounts.

You will be required to ensure submissions meet commercial / legal / finance requirements for cost recovery and compliance.

  • Specification of strategic principles and required inputs from all business owners of assumptions, scope, costs and schedules.
  • Assurance of the submissions and interface with the client for their approval.

Designer and ownership of complex financial models, estimation of the lifecycle decommissioning liabilities and integration of cost and schedule with ENGL financial reporting.
