Apply before 11:55 pm on Sunday 14th April 2024

About the role

We are advertising for a role within the Heat and Industrial Decarbonisation branch which offers an exciting opportunity to be at the heart of government policy making to reshape the UK’s business and industrial energy use. It will provide the postholder the opportunity to directly shape policy for one of the largest causes of carbon emissions in the UK, in a supportive environment that encourages innovation, independent thinking, and a focus on delivering value for the UK taxpayer.

You don’t need to be a policy professional, have any specific qualifications, or prior experience/knowledge of these policy areas to apply for this role. We are looking for people who have the right set of skills for the role, who demonstrate the values of our organisation, and who are motivated to come and work with us on a range of issues that are key to the UK’s economic prosperity and resilience. The postholder will be well supported by line management and the wider team, and training on spending control and reviewing business cases will be provided.

Key responsibilities for the Industrial and Commercial Decarbonisation role include:

  1. Developing expertise in industrial and commercial decarbonisation: You will be the Treasury’s key point of contact, identifying and promoting HMT interests in this policy area and helping design the strategy for the next Parliament.
  2. Building and maintaining constructive relationships: engaging with colleagues across the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero (DESNZ) to ensure their plans are clear, costed and represent value for money; HM Treasury to ensure HMT’s economic strategies are aligned with ambitions to decarbonise industry; and industry and investors to understand the impact of your decisions.
  3. Scrutinising spending proposals and monitoring the delivery of existing schemes to ensure policies are delivering as expected and responding proactively when required. This will involve making decisions using robust evidence, understanding the role of Government in the sector and advising seniors and ministers.
  4. Using strategic thinking and analytical skills to ensure we have a clear strategy for industrial decarbonisation policy. This will involve considering the role of industry in the wider economy, putting clear structures around analytical work, and using the right metrics to communicate complicated policy and its economic context.
