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.
Competition is one of the hottest topics in the UK energy sector at present, and our work is incredibly significant for consumers, industry stakeholders and the overall development of energy policy. You’ll be part of an experienced and enthusiastic team which investigates and undertakes enforcement on high-profile and complex cases. Typical tasks will include analysing non-compliance issues and identifying the licence conditions or consumer / competition / cyber security laws that may have been breached. Subsequently you’ll help to establish whether there has in fact been a breach, and if so, what is its extent. The job will involve engaging with whistleblowers and external parties (including those under investigation), analysing qualitative and numerical information to calculate the potential gain and detriment, and drafting and structuring clear, concise case documentation.
We want to hear from experienced candidates with strong analytical and drafting skills, excellent attention to detail and confidence with using and manipulating data. You should also bring experience of conducting investigations and other enforcement casework in a comparable field, and of contributing to the development of enforcement policy. Good communication skills and ability to build effective working relationships are essential. Professional, applied knowledge of the Competition Act 1998 is a must, and a wider grasp of competition law, financial analysis and/or economic analysis skills – as well as the operation of competitive energy markets – would be a distinct asset.
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.
