Senior Policy Manager
Salary: Competitive + benefits including 6% pension contribution, healthcare insurance and cycle to work scheme
Contract Type: Permanent
Start Date: Immediately
The energy sector is undergoing rapid change, and we need a Senior Policy Manager to help coordinate and lead an ambitious programme to deliver for the decentralised energy sector.
The ADE is the leading advocate of a more local, user-led, efficient and low-carbon energy system. We represent one of the most exciting and fast changing areas of the energy sector. Our members cover a wide range of market participants, from industrial manufacturers, energy service providers, demand response aggregators and technology developers, to local authorities and the wider energy market supply chain.
With a market shift towards decentralised generation and smart energy services, this is a key opportunity for the right person to take on a senior role in representing one of the fastest growing parts of the energy sector.
We are looking for an experienced, confident and proactive person who can help lead the Association’s electricity policy team to develop and promote combined heat and power, district heating and cooling, and demand side energy services, including demand response, energy storage and energy management.
With sound experience of the energy sector, the role will embrace a broad spectrum of public policy, including electricity markets, renewables, energy efficiency, carbon taxation, planning, and infrastructure investment, and will involve working directly with key government departments, local authorities, regulators and parliamentarians.
The applicant should have at least 5 years’ experience in similar roles, and a good understanding of these policy areas, including technical, commercial and political understanding of electricity markets, and experience in delivering policy and regulatory wins.
The candidate will require strong analytical, organisational and communication skills, with the necessary initiative to lead a small team and assume responsibility for leading prominent projects and work packages. The ability to communicate complex topics effectively to a diverse range of audiences, and to work collaboratively and constructively with colleagues and stakeholders, are key attributes.
The office is an exciting and dynamic place to work, engaging with industry leaders and decision makers at the forefront of energy policy, helping to shape the future energy market. You will enjoy engaging within a small office team as well as across a wide number of external stakeholders.
At the ADE we believe that we succeed by having happy, motivated people and we will support and invest in a successful candidate. In exchange we look for proactive team players who are ready to deliver on behalf of our members.
