Job description

Our client is a major design, engineering and project management consultancy who has been rapidly growing within various sectors and who is looking for multiple experienced professionals to join them on permanent basis. This role is for a Regulation and Assurance Consultant, this role is flexible about the location and can be in Surrey, Glasgow, Bristol, Birmingham, Oxford, Peterborough, or Warrington.  

 

Job Description:  

 

You will have the opportunity to play a leading role in the delivery of projects covering all aspects of audit, technical assurance and price reviews for your growing technical area. You’ll work collaboratively with other company businesses and a range of professionals (engineers, environmental scientists, cost consultants, customer service specialists, economists) to provide a consistent and integrated service to their clients. You’ll also be expected to support with enquiries and provide key input to proposals for the future success of the business.  

 

You will be required to contribute to the production of, high quality client- and public-facing deliverables, demonstrated through excellence in communication and ability to tailor and deliver to different audiences, e.g. Audit Committees and Boards, Customer groups, Investors and Regulators.

Requirements

You will have growing and varied experience of either working in or with water companies in a regulatory environment, most likely in annual reporting of performance and developing or assuring investment and business plans. Your technical background will be in one or more of Water, Wastewater, Water Resources, Water Quality and/or Bioresources (wholesale activities), although an understanding of Customer Services and Billing (retail activities) is also useful. An appreciation of how the financial side of a utility business (capital and operational expenditure, investment planning) links to your technical area is desirable. Experience of technical auditing is not a pre-requisite as they provide comprehensive training and support, but having an inquisitive mind and tenacity are important attributes they look for.  

 

You must be client focused and able to build strong relationships with their clients and also your colleagues as there is a high degree of collaborative working which underpins the success of their work. An interest in project management would also be desirable, but not essential, because managing often complex consultancy and assurance assignments is an essential part of delivering their projects.  

 

You must have a degree in a relevant discipline, ideally be chartered (or working towards chartership) and you may have relevant post-graduate qualifications or training.  

 

Projects will be based mainly in the UK but an ability and willingness to occasionally support delivery worldwide is useful but not a pre-requisite.
