Managing price protection in an unprecedented energy market
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. Now that record increases and volatility in global gas prices have put the energy market under unprecedented pressure, our price cap policy is the subject of intense interest from retail consumers, stakeholders and government alike.
As Head of Price Cap Policy (near term or medium term), you will operate in this exciting environment, developing, consulting on and delivering policy changes for price cap updates. This includes changes at pace for the next price cap update, and (in the medium-term role) a programme of future changes. You will also set the strategic direction of the cap in line with other retail priorities. And, as a team leader, you can expect to manage, mentor and support others working across multiple disciplines.
Expertise in energy retail is essential and you will have a good knowledge of the regulatory environment, including issues relating to the price cap. Along with a proven aptitude for leading others, you’ll have experience of managing budgets and resources. Strong organisational skills, including the prioritisation and delivery of work, are important. Success will also depend on your excellent communication and influencing skills, and your ability to build productive working relationships, with stakeholders and teams both inside and outside the organisation.
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.
