A career that will deliver change. Together, we'll help Britain achieve net zero.

The Opportunity


EDF UK is the UK's largest producer of low carbon electricity, the biggest supplier of electricity by volume in Great Britain and the largest supplier to British businesses.  We strive to provide a quality service to all our customers, starting with ensuring we have a fully robust Enterprise Information Security infrastructure. 

We are looking for an experienced Senior Security Analyst to join our Enterprise Information Security function, leading our talented team of Security Analysts in conducting the analysis, operations and maintenance of systems security. 


Our teams are set up to work flexibly, therefore you don't have to live in Gloucester. As long as you are in a position to travel to the office when required to collaborate with your team and stakeholders you can be based within a reasonable travelling distance. We provide a full suite of IT equipment to ensure that our employees can work from home comfortably and effectively.

The Role & Skills:


You will apply your excellent people and management skills to lead the team in becoming a truly multifunctional source to the wider business. In addition, you will be applying your technical knowledge to improve the overall capability of the team and the systems they use.


You will use data collected from a variety of cyber defence tools (e.g., IDS alerts, firewalls, network traffic logs) to analyse events that occur within their environments for the purposes of mitigating threats. You will investigate, analyse and respond to cyber incidents. 


It would be great if you had experience in data loss prevention, email hygiene and firewalls; but we'd love to speak to you if you have experience in one of those areas with an appetite to develop your skills.   


The role does require you to be able to obtain and maintain SC Clearance. A Full JD is available should you wish to see it.

Competitive Salary & Benefits


At EDF we're dedicated to offering flexible benefits that support our people across all aspects of their lives. We're delighted to offer a range of benefits to support our employees' physical, emotional and financial wellbeing. 

In addition to a competitive starting salary, we offer a market-leading company pension scheme, paid holidays and a range of flexible benefits, such as: a company incentive bonus plan, health cover, cycle to work scheme, gym membership, discounts and employee pricing.
