What makes UW a great fit for you?

We're an award-winning fully-integrated utility business knocking on the door of £1 billion in annual revenue.

With 28 awards under our belt we are excited about the future ahead but we’re only just getting started!

You probably won't have heard much about us, but we're one of the UK's biggest, home-grown success stories of the last 20 years. We may be a FTSE 250 company with year on year growth, but at heart we still see ourselves as an entrepreneurial challenger with a strong family-feel!

Who we’re looking for

You’ll need to be a driven professional with around 5 years experience in Energy Regulation, Industry Codes and Compliance. You’ll have experience in dealing with large scale regulatory change programmes within the energy market, which may include the Smart Metering Programme, Ofgem’s Switching Programme, Settlement Reform or similar.

You’ll also need to have an understanding of the energy cost stack and be the main point of contact for network charging changes and have a broad understanding of key drivers. You’ll be adept at managing compliance with industry codes, translating and scoping industry change proposals for internal stakeholders, as well as formulating and representing UW’s position in industry groups, driving change to produce positive outcomes for our members. 

What you’ll need to bring:

  • Experience managing compliance with industry codes including an understanding of retail energy codes
  • Working knowledge of other energy codes (such as DCUSA, BSC, UNC and SEC) would be favourable
  • Good written, verbal and presentation skills as well as strong interpersonal and communication skills 
  • A good grasp of business and regulatory terminologies 
  • Ability to work in a fast-paced, collaborative environment, engaging key stakeholders to develop pragmatic solutions to complex problems
  • Outstanding attention to detail.

Don’t forget though, you’ll need to be eligible to live and work in the UK.
