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.

This is an ideal opportunity for someone with strong analytical skills and a keen eye for detail. You'll be part of our Market Intelligence & Oversight team and you can expect to be working on two key areas: analysing the drivers that affect the wholesale energy market and undertaking case reviews and investigations into potential breaches of regulations (issues such as insider trading or market manipulation). You'll undertake quantitative and qualitative analysis of wholesale markets to identify market trends and advise relevant Ofgem teams on key changes. And you will have extensive engagement with a wide range of stakeholders across the industry, with government agencies such as BEIS, with other European regulatory agencies and the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). It's a flexible and adaptive team environment and it will suit someone who is open to new techniques and testing out new ways of working.

It's likely that you are currently working in an analytical role at present, and you are accustomed to working with data and numerical information. You'll need excellent analytical and quantitative skills as well as the communication skills to present your findings to different audiences (in writing and in person). You should be able to take the initiative and work independently, while at the same time being an active and collaborative part of the team. It's important that you can manage your time well - balancing priorities to meet deadlines will be a key skill.

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
  • Subsidised gym
  • Interest free season ticket loan
  • Rental deposit scheme
  • Perkbox (staff discount scheme)
  • Employee Wellbeing Programme.
