E-Serve is the delivery arm of Ofgem, the regulator of Britain’s gas and electricity markets, and is helping to shape the future of the energy market – delivering better energy efficiency through renewable energy sources, and protecting the interests of energy consumers. If you choose to be part of our team (based in London and Glasgow) you can expect plenty of opportunities to develop your knowledge and experience, with the professional support you need to reach your full potential.

The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme is designed to encourage increased use of renewable fuels in heating and forms a key part of the UK’s commitment to reducing carbon emissions. As the administrator of the scheme, Ofgem is responsible for reviewing large volumes of applications to assess eligibility and managing payments to successful applicants.

As Policy & Guidance Assistant Manager you’ll help to produce high quality and user friendly guidance material that explains the RHI scheme and its requirements to participants. You can expect to be highly involved in changes to existing material, and, will be expected to monitor regulation changes to ensure that our guidelines remain accurate and up-to-date. You will have some liaison across the RHI teams to ensure consistency of approach and knowledge is sharing. You’ll have a part to play in promoting policy awareness across staff through training, and will provide feedback to BEIS on draft legislstion. You’ll be part of a small team, so you can expect exposure within and beyond the organisation and the chance to work with senior colleagues, so the confidence to engage senior colleagues in meeting agreed deadlines will be important.

It’s an opportunity that demands previous experience drafting and developing guidance or written materials for different audiences, and ideally also contributing to policy development, implementation or interpreting legislation. The ability to translate complex subject matter into meaningful and engaging content for non-technical audiences will be a key requirement, so you should enjoy writing and editing.  You’ll need to be able to demonstrate a track record of working with internal and external stakeholders, and as well as good all round communication skills, you’ll need to be well-organised and able to meet deadlines while still maintaining a keen eye for detail. We expect that you’ll be degree educated, or that you can demonstrate relevant professional experience.

Ofgem can offer you a comprehensive and competitive 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
  • Subsidised gym and restaurant
  • Flexible working hours and family friendly policies
  • Interest free season ticket loan.
