EDF has announced that it is maintaining its recruitment volumes in 2022 to prepare for the Group's future and meet its needs in terms of industrial, technical and digital skills.
In France, 15,500 new employees will join the EDF group: 8000 new employees, including 7000 on permanent contracts; 4000 work-study students for the 2022-2023 period; and 3500 trainees.
To meet the challenges of the nuclear sector, the EDF group aims to recruit 7500 employees in France in the nuclear field over the period 2022-2024, with 3300 new employees in 2022. In addition, up to 750 positions will be offered in 2022 by EDF Renouvelables in France and abroad.
The recruitment plans target young graduates as well as candidates with experience in technical fields (in particular in mechanics, operation, electrical engineering, automation, maintenance) and in digital technology.
More than 10% of those recruited in 2022 for the EDF group in France will come from a professional baccalaureate, around 40% from Bac +2/3, around 50% from engineering schools or universities. In addition, more than 40% of outgoing work-study and interns will be recruited in 2022 following their experience within EDF SA.
Christophe Carval, Group Executive Director in charge of the Group Human Resources Department, noted: “The EDF group is mobilised to support the Group's challenges in terms of renewables and nuclear. Needs in industrial, technical and digital skills are essential for France to meet its ambitions in the service of the energy transition.”
