Senior Adviser, Regulatory

The electricity industry is going through a period of exciting and challenging transformation, requiring the sector to collaborate on many forward-looking projects which ultimately benefit our members' two million plus customers.


The Electricity Networks Association is the peak body for New Zealand's 26 lines companies and we're looking to broaden our capability to ensure that regulation is fit-for-purpose as we enter an era of technological change. We're committed to serving our members and stakeholders by operating to the highest possible standards of professionalism, are passionate, determined, and foster an environment of excellence and accountability.


The senior regulatory adviser will preferably be based in our Lambton Quay office and work full time, however flexibility will be considered for the right candidate.


Ideally, you'll have experience in the electricity sector and/or in regulation of natural monopolies. You'll likely have a degree in a relevant discipline such as economics, law or commerce and be looking to take the next step in your career. If Wellington-based, you might have been working in government and seeking to broaden your experience through working in the private sector.


You'll need to be a team player and people person - good at corralling the views of ENA members at meetings, telecons, and one-on-ones to further the ENA work programme. Excellent verbal and written communication skills are a must.


Key external stakeholders will include the Commerce Commission, which regulates our sector, but other agencies are also engaged. You'll be the secretariat for the various ENA working groups which specialise in achieving effective and efficient regulatory outcomes under Part 4 of the Commerce Act. That means you'll be good at organising and preparing for meetings, minuting the key outcomes, and following up on actions such as preparing submissions. You'll likely be highly competent with office software such as Excel.


Salary will depend on experience and the final shape of the role.
