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.

It’s vital that you can bring the concept of data governance to life for different audiences – making it relevant and accessible to their work. You will have a clear idea of what good data governance looks like and how to change behaviours and practices within a complex, multi-disciplinary organisation to improve its practice in this area. Your background could be a number of settings, such as financial services, utilities, consultancy, manufacturing or another public sector organisation, and you’ll offer an in-depth understanding of relevant data regulation.
