Strategic Engagement Manager
Strategic Engagement Manager
London, Canary Wharf
£31,500 - £38,600 (1x permanent role and 1x 12-month FTC)
Ofgem is committed to making a positive difference for energy consumers through effective regulation of the market and close working with suppliers to ensure sustainable energy for consumers and businesses in the UK. We currently have two Strategic Engagement Manager roles for two of Ofgem’s high profile policies - the price controls (RIIO2) and the retail price cap.
As the energy regulator, Ofgem sets price controls for the companies that operate Britain’s gas and electricity networks, to protect the interests of current and future consumers. Our price controls determine the amount of revenue that these companies can recover over the price control period for providing network services to their customers. The current set of Price Controls will end in 2021-23 and the RIIO-2 programme is setting the new arrangements.
On the retail price cap the Government introduced proposals for legislation to Parliament to introduce a temporary tariff cap for customers on Standard Variable (SVT) and default tariffs. Ofgem will have a new duty to design and implement the tariff cap and implement the price cap as soon as practical.
Both programmes will work to tight deadlines and include complex stakeholder interactions throughout its lifecycle. In this high-profile role, you will work closely with policy colleagues and the Communications teams, devising and delivering engagement and tailoring communications to key stakeholder groups. Providing advice, offering a knowledge bank of information and sharing best practice, you will enable forward-planning and help to enhance the value of communications and engagement across Ofgem.
You must have experience of devising, delivering and evaluating stakeholder engagement strategies and plans for high-profile, complex policies. An outstanding communicator, with excellent writing skills, you will be able to summarise complex policy areas, address target audiences and evolve stakeholder engagement plans. A natural team player, you will be comfortable taking the initiative, working flexibly and driving projects forward within a multi-disciplinary team. Exposure to senior-level stakeholders, both internal and external, is vital.

- Up to 30 days’ annual leave
