Ofgem is the energy regulator for Great Britain, and our role is to protect consumers now and in the future by working to deliver a greener, fairer energy system. We do this by:

  • working with Government, industry and consumer groups to deliver a net zero economy at the lowest cost to consumers
  • stamping out sharp and bad practice, ensuring fair treatment for all consumers, especially the vulnerable
  • enabling competition and innovation, which drives down prices and results in new products and services for consumers.

We are a non-ministerial government department and an independent National Regulatory Authority.

The Role: 

The Regulatory Director – Energy, Systems Management and Security will play a pivotal role at the heart of Ofgem. The successful candidate will need to be able to understand the current system, identify key current and future challenges in energy and lead the design and regulation of the wholesale energy market and its operations.

Knowledge, Skills and Experience:

We are looking for someone with the capacity to understand the sector and work with the executive team to deliver against it. You will be at the forefront of strengthening Ofgem’s decisions on behalf of consumers within a dynamic and agile environment. 

In addition, the successful applicant will be a full member of the Executive leadership team and will be expected to play a full part in developing the wider Ofgem strategy, organisational transformation and our day to day management. The Director will be a full member of Ofgem’s Executive Committee and directly involved in all key Executive decisions. 

What we do matters
