Job description

This opportunity sits within our global consulting client's Energy & Utilities sector and encompasses work for the large clients, including all of the leading UK energy and water companies as well as some of largest utilities in the EU. They are widely recognised by many industry stakeholders as one of the most innovative advisors influencing the future of the sector.

As the sector continues to evolve, they are growing our proposition further, specifically relating to the role that the energy transition brings both in the opportunities for their clients and in the range of products and services that they can offer.

This function is expanding rapidly and they are looking for a high quality and experienced candidate with a particular focus on giving strategic advice on the energy transition to their clients in the energy and water sectors premised on net zero.

The position:

  • Working closely with the rest of the senior team across the function, you will help lead and further develop the team and its propositions, increasing their presence in the sector.
  • You will build relationships with key clients across the sector, as well as with other advisors (e.g. technical and boutique).
  • The projects that you will advise on will be high profile and varied. These could include advising on net zero strategies for regulated and non-regulated businesses across all utilities, decarbonisation of the energy sector, energy policy impact assessment including the future of gas, low carbon technology assessments, market analysis in the context of commercial and regulatory due diligence for transactions in the net zero space, and much more.
  • There is no ‘typical project’. You will need to apply a structured strategic approach to problem solving, drawing on established strategic and commercial principles, while having the capacity to think creatively.
  • You will be leading the delivery of proposals and key projects. This will include delegating tasks to team members, constructing project plans, managing client interactions, tracking budgets, and complying with the company’s risk processes.
  • You will need to be comfortable managing, coaching, and mentoring junior staff on specific projects, and agile in terms of working with different teams within the firm.
  • You will maintain a good technical understanding of the key sectors across all power and utilities vectors, in particular the energy and water sectors including energy production, transport and end use as well as policy, regulation, subsidies and commercial structures.

The person:

  • Have strong sector specific knowledge in combination with strong technical skills (business, commercial, economics, financial).
  • Have significant experience in the strategy space, ideally with experience of applying this to the energy sector in particular, preferably linked to one of the disruptive energy industries or a consultant specialising in these sectors;
  • Have strong knowledge of corporate strategy, investment decision making and commercial/regulatory due diligence;
  • Have a good understanding of new and emerging value propositions in the utilities sector (such as electric vehicles, heat, hydrogen, solar & storage or demand side response)
  • Have experience or understanding of energy policy and economic regulation as well as a good understanding of future energy scenarios and how they impact businesses in the sector;
  • Be skilled in strategic and financial analysis, modelling and scenario/options analysis and have a good understanding of cost-benefit analysis and/or impact assessment studies;
  • Provide compelling and well thought out solutions to strategic, financial or economic problems of high complexity;
  • Provide persuasive and self-assured responses in a credible manner;
  • Appreciate the chance to work on a wide range of projects and proposals simultaneously to demanding timetables;
  • Be innovative, driven and highly resilient; capable of operating within a complex organisational dynamic
  • Have experience of managing medium size project teams, with a focus on mentoring and coaching junior staff; and
  • Relish the opportunity for interaction and dialogue with companies, investors, regulators and other stakeholders, and with a host of functions across the firm.
