This is an exciting time to join the Department as it has a crucial role to play in transforming the British economy as we transition following the departure from the European Union and drive the country towards a stronger, greener future – creating jobs, growth and opportunities across the UK. With our mission of leading Britain’s recovery by fighting coronavirus, backing business, unleashing innovation and tackling climate change there has never been a more exciting time to join BEIS.
We are delighted to be able to offer this opportunity to join the Department’s Energy and Security Group senior leadership team as the Director, Energy Development and Resilience. Energy and Security Group’s vision is to ensure the UK has a reliable, low cost and clean energy system.
This is a critical time for the Group as it continues the work to decarbonise the energy system in line with the legislative target to achieve Net Zero by 2050. The publication of the Prime Minister’s 10 Point Plan for a Green Industrial Revolution and the Energy White Paper towards the end of last year set out the Government’s commitment to the transformation of the energy sector. Specifically, this role will be responsible for ensuring the ongoing resilience of the energy system as we transition to net zero, developing the cyber security capability of the energy sector and wider industry, upstream oil and gas policy and the transition of the oil and gas sector in line with the North Sea Transition Deal, planning consents for new energy infrastructure and managing the legacy from the former nationalised coal sector. The successful candidate will oversee BEIS’s emergency response capability and sponsor two key BEIS partner organisations – the Oil and Gas Authority and the Coal Authority.
They will have excellent strategic thinking skills and will be a confident leader with the ability to lead a diverse, high performing team and champion talent development. They will need to be highly articulate and credible at the most senior levels, with the ability to communicate complex issues and successfully negotiate and influence both across Whitehall and with key stakeholders. They must be able to set direction and manage risk across a broad portfolio of topics, with a focus on facilitating the transition to net zero and management of risk.
