Interested in shaping the sustainable energy agenda?
Ambitious to work directly with energy industry leaders and policy makers?
Ecuity Consulting LLP is a growing consultancy specialising in strategy, regulation and policy affecting the sustainable energy sector in the UK and Europe. The company works with political and business leaders to develop commercial propositions and policy contributing to the transition to a low carbon economy. Ecuity’s mission is to make sustainable energy mainstream by using unique strategic insight to connect the commercial day to day reality of running a business and the political challenges of sustainable energy policy making.
Our clients include energy suppliers, global manufacturers, government and the cleantech investment community. As the business continues to evolve, we are looking to appoint an Energy Policy Economist to work full time from our vibrant office located in Solihull town centre.
The successful applicant will be a motivated, detail-oriented self-starter with strong analytical skills and an interest in the low carbon economy. A high degree of numeracy and confidence with data manipulation is essential. The role will require the completion of diverse assignments working with industry and government to evaluate, model and support the commercial, financial and political viability of low carbon investment propositions and commercial trends.
- Academic/professional background: degree at graduate or postgraduate level in economics or finance. 1-2 years of relevant work experience will be considered favourably but is not essential;
- Analytical skills: strong analytical/quantitative skills to conduct commercial and economic appraisal of business models and policies;
- Communication skills: ability to convert this analysis into easily understood discourse and present it to internal and external audiences.
- Modelling skills: capability across the MS Office suite, particularly MS Excel to carry out economic analysis.
- Organisation and flexibility: ability to handle competing priorities/deadlines and cope with occasional anti-social working hours (typically evenings rather than weekends) and regular travel to London.
- Teamwork: capacity to operate as a team player working co-operatively with colleagues at all business levels and demanding clients.
Personal development is at the centre of our philosophy so the successful candidate should anticipate considerable exposure working in co-ordination with government and industry leaders shaping the future of the low carbon economy.
