Make a splash at Ofwat as Director of Financial Resilience!

Ofwat’s vision for the water sector in England and Wales is one where customers, the environment and wider society have trust and confidence in water and wastewater services, reflecting the vital nature of these public services. We want the companies that provide these services to be accountable to their customers for delivering the services they need and want, at a price they can afford.

Our work in the finance and governance space has strong linkages with our programme of work underpinning our next price determinations for 2020-25, “Price Review19”.

  • To take ownership of our work to increase focus on the robustness of companies’ assessments of their financial resilience
  • To ensure Ofwat has a comprehensive up-to-date understanding of the ownership structures of the water companies.
  • To engage, collaborate and build effective relationships and partnerships with key external stakeholders
  • To provide strong intellectual leadership within the area of Finance and Governance, including contribution to the PR19 from September 2018

We are looking for an individual with strong credentials in leading financial analysis ideally within a regulated sector combined with a strong education background in a finance discipline and the ability to communicate in an effective manner, both written and verbal.
