Regulatory Economist

ECA is growing and we are looking to expand our regulatory economics team. We are a specialised economic consultancy advising on policy and regulatory issues in the energy sector and water sectors.

With decarbonisation come great challenges for network regulators and grid operators. If you are interested and passionate about playing a role in this change, we would be keen to hear from you.

The role is at Consultant or Senior Consultant level. You would be working with regulators, energy market participants and policymakers across a range of regulatory and policy matters where you could bring your regulatory expertise to bear. You would also have the opportunity to work across our four service areas (investment planning, network regulation, decarbonisation strategy and markets & commercial) with different teams and clients, and across many jurisdictions around the world.

Ideally, you have 3 to 5 years prior experience working in the energy sector. This could be either for a regulator, network operator or a consulting company. Your experience should be in regulatory economics issues such as price controls, regulatory finance or tariff setting – preferably in Europe, the UK, Australia, New Zealand or the US. Strong quantitative modelling capabilities are considered a plus and you should have excellent written and verbal English language abilities.

ECA is a 100% employee owned company offering flexible working arrangements, attractive pay, the prospect of share ownership within a few years and an intellectually stimulating working environment. ECA has offices in London, Berlin and Athens and you can apply to any of these. We are an equal opportunity employer and actively encourage applications from candidates with diverse backgrounds.

Please send a letter outlining why you are interested in the position at ECA together with your CV, and put ‘Regulatory Economist’ in the subject header, to recruit@eca-uk.com we look forward to receiving your application.
