I have been working at EDF full-time (More than 8 years)
A solid salary package with up to 28 days holiday per year, great pension benefits and company contributions to private health insurance for all levels of the corporation. Speaking from experience, there are great opportunities to progress internally if you have what it takes and can perform. There is a great culture and acceptance that every decision we make may not be the correct one but everything is done with the right intention in mind and there is a genuine customer focus. A great place to work.
Unfortunately, not all staff are committed to their role and there is definitely room for improvement in attitude of some individuals which the company actively works to change and improve. Very little else, I think all large companies can suffer with limited communication at times on certain topics and perhaps more direct comms from your managers would be better placed.
Advice to Management
Keep doing what you do, respect people for their contributions because the job is not easy on a skills and mental level. Reward and recognition are a great tool but these don't have to be fiscal, get managers involved in day to day activities and competitions within teams and areas to build engagement with quality programmes and wider targets. Keep staff in training and commit to continuous improvement. Simply put, take short term pain for long term gain, not just for customer benefit but for profit margins also and everybody wins.

I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at EDF (Sunderland, North East England, England (UK)) in March 2020.
I applied online and was contacted, two hours after submission, by a member of their Recruitment Delivery Team. I partook in a telephone interview and was booked for a virtual interview two days later. The interview was booked for 10:15am. The interviewers called via WhatsApp at 10:21am on the day of the interview. I was interviewed by two women and they took turns asking me questions. I was asked to perform a task - reply to a customers' email. I was given 10 minutes to read the email and respond to the customer.
I received an email the next day that i did not get the job and i asked for feedback. The feedback i received was mostly positive but the interviewers had written that i was late for the interview, my writing needed improvements and i did not give in-depth reply to the questions, even when "promoted". I think the word is "prompted". My overall view of the interview and interviewers was - unprofessional and cheap. I actually saw the interviewers laughing at me while i completed the task i was assigned. Please use Skype for virtual interviews, it is professionally acceptable compared to WhatsApp.
