Manager: Low Carbon Regulated Asset Base, Open to flexible working
Ofgem works on behalf of energy consumers to ensure that every household and business in the UK can rely on a safe, affordable and environmentally sustainable energy supply. We are playing a vital part in accelerating the transition to Net Zero and a carbon neutral energy system - a goal that everyone wants to achieve. Whatever your role, you’ll be playing your part in creating new energy solutions that are great for customers, and great for the environment.
We offer a diverse range of flexible working career opportunities: roles that are stimulating and rewarding, where you can get involved in ground-breaking work. And it’s important to us that we recruit from a wide range of professional and personal backgrounds – bringing different perspectives and experiences to our work.
Our Low Carbon Regulated Asset Base (RAB) team works across some of the key components of the Government’s ten-point plan for a green industrial revolution. So this is a great opportunity to play your part in working towards Net Zero targets, shaping low carbon policy and promoting the best interests of energy consumers. Expect to get involved in cutting-edge topics such as carbon capture use and storage, new nuclear investment, and monitoring the implications of hydrogen as an emerging energy source. As part of a cooperative and interdependent team of policy, finance, engineering, legal and regulatory experts you’ll manage specific workstreams for the team and undertake detailed development of core components of the regulatory regime for Ofgem’s Low Carbon RAB work. You’ll provide recommendations to colleagues and senior management on key elements of strategy, policy, regulatory functions and potentially specific projects. And your contribution will support and advise the development of new models to support investment in large low carbon generators and carbon capture use and storage.
We want to hear from people who are passionate about making a difference to this vital work. You should be a clear and logical thinker who can grasp complex issues and material and communicate well in writing and in person. You should already have experience of working with complex subject matter and making recommendations on policy and / or strategy development. Strong candidates will be able to offer particular expertise in the fields of regulation, economics, finance, legal, or engineering. You should be well-organised and able to manage priorities and take the initiative to meet deadlines. You should also be able to assure that you have the interpersonal and presentation skills to represent Ofgem effectively in external meetings with different stakeholders.
