Full Time

E-Serve is the delivery arm of Ofgem, the regulator of Britain’s gas and electricity markets, and is helping to shape the future of the energy market – delivering better energy efficiency through renewable energy sources, and protecting the interests of energy consumers. If you choose to be part of our team (based in London and Glasgow) you can expect plenty of opportunity to develop your knowledge and experience, with the professional support you need to reach your full potential.

The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme is designed to encourage increased use of renewable fuels in heating and forms a key part of the UK’s commitment to reducing carbon emissions. As the administrator of the scheme, Ofgem is responsible for reviewing large volumes of applications to assess eligibility and managing payments to successful applicants.


This role will be central to enhancing our resilience in audit and compliance – building increased capacity and professional expertise within the team. You’ll review site audit reports and work with the support of technical experts and fraud prevention managers to identify any risks or issues that merit further investigation or escalation. You’ll also play a key part in managing an effective relationship with our audit contractor, which will include monitoring performance against KPIs, sharing feedback on quality of reporting and monitoring invoicing and budgetary issues.

You’ll analyse scheme compliance data to identify any trends and liaise with internal and external colleagues to make recommendations for improvement where required. Audit and compliance is recognised as a business critical workstream within the RHI scheme, with a direct reporting line to BEIS and DfE, so this role offers the chance to make a key personal contribution to one of our most high profile renewable energy schemes.

Applicants should combine excellent education (degree or equivalent professional qualification) with demonstrable experience of working alongside external contractors. You should be able to organise and manage competing priorities, have high-quality written and verbal communication skills, and experience of working with legislation and implementing policy. We will look for evidence of an ability to build and maintain excellent relationships with key stakeholders, and you need high-level numerical and data analysis skills. Attention to detail, and full competence in MS Office applications are both essential.

Ofgem can offer you a comprehensive and competitive benefits package, which includes:

  • Up to 30 days’ annual leave
  • Excellent training and development opportunities
  • The opportunity to join the Civil Service pension arrangements, which include a valuable range of benefits
  • Flexible working hours and family friendly policies
  • Subsidised gym and restaurant
  • Interest free season ticket loan.
