The Commission is recruiting for two policy advisers, at different civil service grade points. The two successful candidates will work together with others as part of a team initially focused on energy and climate related work for the second National Infrastructure Assessment.

  • Senior Executive Officer
    This is a stretching role working across the Commission’s energy and climate portfolio of high profile areas of policy development. It will require the successful candidate to provide critical expert analysis and strategic insight, and offers the opportunity to develop expert-level knowledge on the energy sector.
  • Higher Executive Officer
    The role holder will contribute to policy development on energy topics, resulting in recommendations to government in the next National Infrastructure Assessment. As well as desk-based research and analysis this may include commissioning and managing external procurements, coordinating engagement with stakeholders (including the Commission’s expert advisory panels) and managing consultation and call for evidence processes.

Both roles will be contributing to the energy projects selected to form part of the second National Infrastructure Assessment, which will look at long-term infrastructure needs and make recommendations to government. The Commission’s baseline assessment, to be published later this year, will confirm the key challenges and opportunities for the energy sector which will have significant focus on how energy policy can support the government’s net zero greenhouse gas emissions target.

The closing date for both roles is 12 September. For more details and to apply online, please visit the respective links above or search for National Infrastructure Commission roles on Civil Service Jobs.
