The Role

Evidence backed by sound economic analysis lies at the heart of Low Carbon team success to shape the sustainability debate. The successful applicant will be an ambitious, detail-oriented self-starter with strong analytical skills and an interest in the low carbon economy. A high degree of numeracy, confidence with data manipulation, and the ability to think logically and creatively about complex problems is essential. The role additionally requires the ability to communicate analytical findings to business leaders and government officials, in written reports and through presentations.

The successful candidate should be able to work independently, and flexibly as part of a team to deliver diverse assignments to time, with drive and enthusiasm. 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.

The role is ideally suited for a university graduate, or an economist with less than 3 years’ worth of work experience.

Responsibilities

The successful candidate will demonstrate some of the follow attributes:

  • 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 basic economic analysis. Experience using Python is advantageous, but not required.

  • Organisation and flexibility: ability to handle competing priorities/deadlines, cope with occasional anti-social working hours (typically evenings rather than weekends), and travel.

  • Teamwork: capacity to operate as a team player working co-operatively with colleagues at all business levels and demanding clients.

  • Academic background: degree at graduate or postgraduate level preferably in economics, finance or another social science (other numerate and engineering degrees will also be considered); some relevant work experience may be beneficial but is not necessary for this role.

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.

Requirements

Successful candidates will also need:

  • Strong communication skills, including written, verbal and numerical
  • Practical experience using Word, Excel, Outlook and PowerPoint
  • Excellent organisational abilities, with a focus on attention to detail
  • Good time management skills and the ability to work to deadlines
  • Ability to build relationships with employees at all levels and to be a team player
  • Confidence and enthusiasm to present to colleagues and other stakeholders

Upon employment, employees should also have a sound awareness of the Company's Information, Quality, Environmental and Energy Management Systems.
