Assist the Director Energy Transformation with the development and implementation of advocacy projects and campaigns.
Assist with the coordination of the CEC’s market and grid directorate, including preparing briefing papers for members and associated directorate administration.
Produce content for advocacy and communication purposes, including drafting reports, briefing papers, presentations, and input to media.

Our ideal candidate will have qualifications and experience in:
