Company Description

The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is an international organisation comprised of 38 member countries, that works to build better policies for better lives. Our mission is to promote policies that will improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world.  Together with governments, policy makers and citizens, we work on establishing evidence-based international standards, and finding solutions to a range of social, economic and environmental challenges. From improving economic performance and creating jobs to fostering strong education and fighting international tax evasion, we provide a unique forum and knowledge hub for data and analysis, exchange of experiences, best-practice sharing, and advice on public policies and international standard-setting.


The International Energy Agency (IEA) is an intergovernmental organisation committed to advancing security of energy supply, economic growth and environmental sustainability through energy policy co-operation. The IEA operates as an autonomous body within the framework of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. Both the OECD and the IEA seek opportunities to work with an increasing number of non-members of growing importance to the world economy. The Agency aims to foster the contribution of the energy sector economic development and environmental sustainability.

IEA work within the Office of the Chief Energy Economist focuses on quantifying and understanding the drivers and challenges facing energy supply and investment today and in the years ahead, providing policy advice to governments, and engaging with the energy and financial community. This work plays a prominent role in the IEA Clean Energy Transitions Programme (CETP) – a large, IEA programme that expands the Agency’s direct work with major emerging economies on clean energy implementation. It encompasses technical collaboration, policy review and guidance, training and exchange programmes, primarily targeting major emerging economies (e.g. China, India and countries in Southeast Asia, Latin America and sub-Saharan Africa).

The position will support the Agency’s efforts in the analysis and preparation of many of the IEAs flagship publications, including the World Energy Outlook, World Energy Investment and other investment work, as well as new and emerging areas impacting energy and climate security including critical minerals and methane emissions. It will comprise analysis of energy market and investment trends, modelling and interpreting long term scenarios, and examining the implementation of effective policies, regulations, market design and financial approaches.
