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 opportunity 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.

Supporting the effective administration of the RHI compliance programme, your main responsibility will be to conduct investigations into any examples of potential non-compliance with regulations, reviewing any observations raised, and co-ordinating with other teams to reach an effective resolution. You should be able to critically review site audit reports, liaising with technical and fraud prevention managers to ensure that any risks and issues identified through audit findings are dealt with speedily and appropriately. Audit and compliance is recognised as a business critical workstream within the RHI scheme, with a direct reporting line to BEIS and DfE, so this role offers the chance to make a key personal contribution to one of our most high profile renewable energy schemes.

Applicants should combine excellent education (degree or equivalent professional qualification) with demonstrable experience of contract monitoring and supervision. Able to organise and manage competing priorities, you'll have high-quality written and verbal communication skills, and experience of working with legislation and implementing policy. Strong numerical and data analysis skills and attention to detail is a must, and full competence in MS Office applications is essential.

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
  • Flexible working hours and family friendly policies
  • Subsidised gym and restaurant
  • Interest free season ticket loan.

Ofgem is an equal opportunities employer. Protecting consumers and powering the future of the energy debate.
