Senior Engineer - Gas
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 an experienced gas network engineer to play an involved role in the regulation of the gas system and to offer expert technical advice on innovations such as the introduction of hydrogen into the network, and how effective regulation can support the transition to a net zero supply. You’ll be directly involved in the implementation and planning of the gas price controls, working closely with our policy teams to identify how we can best influence behaviours and outcomes.
We expect that you’ll hold a degree in a relevant engineering discipline or have developed significant expertise through industry experience. This is likely to have included gas transmission, distribution or network or system operations, system design and planning, asset management, performance and quality of service issues. You should be comfortable working with both quantitative and qualitative analysis, and it’s important that you offer highly developed communication skills, in writing and in person, and that you can bring complex, technical subject matter to life for different audiences.
