Full Time

EDF Energy are seeking a commercial Finance Business Partner to work with key senior stakeholders on the Hinkley Point C project. The job is based in our new flagship Bristol office, and will offer the successful candidate significant career progression opportunities within the largest infrastructure project happening in Europe.

Hinkley Point C (HPC) is a huge undertaking that will see the first new nuclear power station being built in the UK in 20 years. This position will represent finance to commercial, project and engineering teams, and will be responsible for maintaining key relationships with Heads of Departments and Senior Managers. HPC is a major focus for EDF Energy and will continue to be for the foreseeable future. This position will give the candidate exposure to projects and financing that will give a unique insight in to this massive project that is so vital to the UKs energy requirements.

Reporting to the Head of Business Partnering within the Nuclear New Build finance team, this role will support and collaborate with the business to optimise profitability, cash flow and return on investment. The post holder will be empowered to identify and drive key performance indicators and will have direct responsibility for challenging the business based on these decisions.

The job will focus on business strategy & planning, performance management, business analysis, decision support, business management and finance leadership. This is a role with a broad range of responsibilities though, and will encompass project accounting, statutory reporting and investment casing too.

The successful candidate will be a qualified accountant (ACA, ACCA, CGMA) with strong working knowledge of methodologies and tools adopted for financial planning and reporting. Any experience on large capital projects would be an advantage, but we recognise that local skill sets may not be aligned with this requirement. It's important, however, that they have worked in or are working in a large, complex company. The ability to explain complex matters to non-technical stakeholders is also necessary, as is the ability to work with and challenge senior stakeholders who don't have finance at the top of their priorities.

In return, we are offering a competitive salary, an annual bonus scheme, a defined benefit pension plan, a generous annual leave allowance and excellent flexible corporate benefits. While the role is working on the Nuclear New Build project, the role sits with the EDF Group. We are very focused on retaining and developing high performing staff, and this position will be very high profile within our most crucial project.
