Ofgem is the regulator for Britain’s gas and electricity industries and is at the heart of activity that shapes the future of energy policy. This is especially significant given the current drive, at UK and EU level, to achieve a low carbon economy and ensure reliable, affordable and sustainable energy supplies. We operate in a rapidly changing energy environment with the impact of our work being far reaching.

Training & Profiles

Our graduate programme is no ordinary first step on the career ladder. This is an opportunity to work with some of the leading names in the field of Economics, to spend time in Europe learning about how regulation works on the continent and network with like-minded people at the Florence School of Regulation. On the Ofgem E-Serve side, you will help to deliver a low-carbon future through the administering of a number of environmental programmes and the delivery of sustainability projects. E-Serve also designs and delivers regulatory regimes, such as the innovative offshore electricity transmission initiative, developed jointly with the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) and is responsible for tendering up to £17 billion of offshore transmission assets.

The work you will be involved in is therefore high profile and you will be given the opportunity to demonstrate your potential from the outset.

We are looking for graduates with an interest in the energy sector and a minimum 2:1 in a numerical or analytical discipline. This can include Economics, Engineering, Business Studies, Business Management, Business Finance or other energy or sustainability related disciplines.
