Welcome to Regulatory and External Affairs for Ørsted Region UK

You’ll be part of the Public Affairs team reporting to the Head of Public Affairs. You’ll be the sole representative of the Public Affairs team in Wales and the Southwest, supporting our work in the region focussing on our Celtic Sea leasing round bid.  You must be a self-starter to represent Ørsted in Wales and the Southwest but working closely with others is key to succeeding in the role and you’ll be supported by your colleagues from across the UK.

  • identifying opportunities to raise awareness of the Group, its projects, and to extend external influence to maximise impact on stakeholders
  • analysing regional and National Government policies and developing our advocacy positions on offshore wind, and supply chain development as well as on other policy areas as required.

To succeed in the role, you:

  • can work independently, with a strong sense of when it is important to seek clarification and advice from your colleagues
  • have been educated to degree level and have experience of working in a public affair, policy, or parliamentary role, or have other relevant experience
  • can develop a good understanding of complex public affairs positions and are capable of clearly explaining positions to others internally and externally
  • are a clear and concise communicator with strong presentation skills
  • have a good understanding of the political or energy policy landscape in Wales, the Southwest and preferably also in the UK, and have substantial experience with developing and managing stakeholder interactions.
