We're a total of 850+ colleagues from over 50 different nations, located in 8 different offices around the world. At our London office, where this role is located, you'll be joining our international office with over 300 dedicated energy specialists.

  • Supporting annual risk assessments in conjunction with the Surveillance and Monitoring team
