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.

Our Delivery & Schemes Directorate is our delivery arm, and manages a number of high profile environmental programmes. It’s a fast-paced and dynamic place to work, and you can expect to be involved in ground-breaking work. Our flexible working career opportunities are incredibly varied, so we are committed to recruiting talented people from a diverse range of professional and personal back-grounds – bringing different perspectives and experiences to our work.

This is a great opportunity for someone with experience of risk and assurance work, who can collaborate well with others. You’ll work closely with colleagues who are directly responsible for the administration of Ofgem’s environmental and social energy schemes to undertake process reviews or routine assurance activities in order to identify issues or risks and put mitigation plans in place. These regular reviews and subsequent improvements will offer assurance that our schemes are being delivered in line with legislative requirements and the civil service code. It’s a role that offers real variety of work, and considerable engagement with senior stakeholders. And you’ll know that your work is supporting better outcomes for energy consumers and for the environment.

Your previous experience of assurance and/or risk management frameworks and processes will equip you with the skills to review, scrutinise and offer constructive challenge to processes and guidance materials created by colleagues. You’ll have a keen eye for detail, good analytical and numerical skills and you should be able to organise and prioritise your work effectively. It’s important that you have excellent communication skills (in writing and in person) and that you can foster positive relationships with colleagues that enable you to advise and influence effectively.

Ofgem is proud to be an equal opportunity employer. We embrace diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees. All employment is decided on the basis of open and fair competition, merit and business need.

Ofgem can offer you a comprehensive benefits package, which includes: 

  • Up to 30 days’ annual leave 
  • Excellent training and development opportunities 
  • The opportunity to join the Civil Service pension arrangements, which include a valuable range of benefits 
  • Flexible working hours and family friendly policies
