About us

The Department for Energy Security and Net Zero is working to secure the UK’s long term energy

Your work with us

Join us in this important role and you’ll be a key member of our Environmental Management Team,
which is responsible for the environmental assessment and approval of offshore energy projects
across three regional areas of the UK continental shelf. Working to ensure the regulation of
offshore energy projects takes full account of environmental and social objectives, and
projects do not have a significant adverse on the environment or other uses of the sea, you’ll
be responsible for reviewing impact assessments and determining the relevant applications.

You’ll have a range of additional responsibilities, including providing support on the
development of policy regarding emerging environmental issues, and advising operators on
legislative and procedural matters. We’ll also expect you to liaise with statutory consultees
and other environmental bodies, and manage environmental projects and research activities
funded by the Department.

Who we’re looking for

With extensive experience of offshore oil and gas, gas unloading and storage, and carbon
capture and storage, you’ll have good knowledge of the marine environment, environmental impact
assessment, environmental legislation and the management of related issues. With an honours
degree or its equivalent, you should also have a post-graduate qualification in Climate and
Atmospheric Science, Environmental Science, Environmental Management, Environmental Pollution,
Marine Resource Development and Protection, Biology, Bioscience, Marine Biology, Microbiology
or Zoology.

A superb communicator, influencer and team player, and ready to manage and coordinate
workloads, conflicting demands and priorities, you’ll be comfortable working in a high-profile,
fast-paced environment. We’ll also expect you to be committed to managing a service of the
highest quality, and embrace our culture of equality, diversity and inclusion.

The benefits you’ll receive

We offer great working benefits including a world-class pension, flexible working options and a
career where your learning and development is taken seriously. We’re fortunate to have a range
of excellent staff networks, support talented people from all backgrounds to build a career and
thrive, and are proud to be a Disability Confident Leader employer.
