The opportunity


Join our esteemed Direct Tax team within Finance, a close-knit group where collaboration thrives. As the newest member of this dynamic quartet, your role will be instrumental in ensuring EDF Energy Group’s compliance with internal and external tax requirements. This isn’t just about ticking boxes; it’s about fostering tax efficiency in alignment with our broader corporate objectives.


This is an opportunity to gain a breadth of experience and knowledge by working with corporate finance and various finance teams in different Business Units internally and HMRC. We’ll support your development in accounting or tax qualifications and career development in Direct Tax

Alongside a competitive salary and a market-leading pension scheme, we offer a range of flexible benefits to support our people across all aspects of their lives.

Your reward package includes a choice of benefits, such as electric vehicle leasing, enhanced parental leave, health insurance, discounts and employee pricing.

Flexible working means you can work from home (if you wish) with an expectation of working two days a week in the office. We’ll provide a suite of IT equipment to ensure that when you work remotely, you can work comfortably and effectively.


A member from the team says ““I really enjoy working in the Tax team here at EDF. I’m surrounded by a supportive and diverse environment that values inclusivity and growth. Also, professional development is prioritised within the team, and this has provided me with ample opportunities to expand my skillset for my career progression.”


At EDF, everyone’s welcome. We strive to create an inclusive and diverse environment where everyone has a voice and where you feel confident being yourself. We’re committed to equality, diversity, and inclusion. We’d like our future workforce to have an equal gender balance, to include a broad mix of people who are from minority ethnic backgrounds, LGBTQ+, neurodivergent, those with a disability, and supporting social mobility.

We’re a disability confident employer and we’ll do all we can to help with your application, adjusting as you need.

We’ll value the difference you bring and offer opportunities for you to thrive and succeed.

What you’ll be doing


As a Direct Tax Business Partner, you will be the vital link between Business Units and Finance. Your responsibilities span from producing accurate corporation tax returns to negotiating and finalising tax liabilities with HMRC.

Dive into process development, efficiency enhancement, and the automation of critical processes.

Your meticulous eye for detail and tax legislation compliance expertise will be pivotal in ensuring accuracy.

In addition to being either qualified or part qualified in ACA, or CTA, you bring a wealth of experience in UK corporation tax matters from large businesses or prominent accounting practices.

Comfortable working independently, your impeccable time management and prioritization skills will shine as you adapt to evolving requirements.
