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.

We are running an open event to allow candidates the opportunity to learn more about working for Ofgem and discuss the roles we have available in more detail. This virtual event will be on Tuesday 15th June at 5pm. If you would like to attend please register here.

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 take on a leadership role that can influence the delivery of 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. You’ll take ownership of policy thinking and the delivery of specific aspects of the Low Carbon RAB programme – this will involve taking lead responsibility for developing regulatory proposals, briefing senior management, managing stakeholder relationships and strategic planning. You’ll be responsible for developing recommendations on regulatory and policy issues, securing support from senior colleagues and stakeholders and putting them into practice. You’ll ensure that this high performing and motivated team benefits from visible and effective leadership and that regulatory workstreams are successfully delivered.

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 can tailor your communication to your various audiences (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, including identifying risks and proposing mitigations. Strong candidates will be able to offer particular expertise in the fields of regulation, economics, finance, legal, or engineering. You should be an accomplished manager of resources and people – someone who is entrepreneurial and can define priorities and take the initiative to meet deadlines. You should have the interpersonal and presentation skills to represent Ofgem effectively in external meetings with different stakeholders.
