As the UK's regulator for the energy industry, 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 see data as playing a crucial role in enabling competition and innovation, driving down prices for customers and providing them with new products and services.
Joining our brand-new Data team, you will drive data innovation across many aspects of the UK energy market by building a pipeline of innovations in process automation/acceleration, data sourcing, analytics, artificial intelligence and new software/services to improve oversight and decision making. You will work closely with the Chief Analytics Officer and other data functions to take innovations from concept, through proof of value to launch, seeing real change be realised from your efforts.
Contributing to the boldest strategic goals we have, this role requires an understanding of strategic goals along with the ability to achieve measurable return on investment. You are likely to have a background in a tech start-up, data-led consultancy or innovation focused organisation. A passion for understanding and applying new technology, techniques or processes is essential. You'll be ready to work with stakeholders across Ofgem and other government departments, generating ideas, winning support and influencing change. Fresh ideas, a willingness to disrupt and a passion to learn are all important in what is an entrepreneurial and independent role.
Ofgem relies on having a workforce that reflects the society we serve, so we welcome candidates from all backgrounds, and especially those from underrepresented groups. While this is a full-time role, flexible working patterns and job shares are welcome. We will also support you with excellent training and development opportunities, plus a competitive benefits package.
