The OECD is a global economic forum working with 36 member countries and more than 100 emerging and developing economies to make better policies for better lives. Our mission is to promote policies that will improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world. The Organisation provides a unique forum in which governments work together to share experiences on what drives economic, social and environmental change, seeking solutions to common problems.

The International Energy Agency (IEA) is an intergovernmental organisation committed to advancing security of energy supply, economic growth and environmental sustainability through energy policy co-operation. The IEA operates as an autonomous body within the framework of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. Both the OECD and the IEA seek opportunities to work with an increasing number of non-members of growing importance to the world economy.

The IEA seeks a Senior Energy Analyst to contribute to the preparation of its annual World Energy Outlook (WEO) publication, which has gained a reputation as the most reputable source for energy analysis and projections. Each year it provides a full update of energy projections through to 2040 and insights into what they mean for energy security, the environment, economic development and universal access to modern energy.
