Access to reliable electricity is important to all Albertans. It is an essential service and the most common type of energy we consume at the individual level as well as in the commercial, industrial and agricultural sectors. It is the most convenient type of energy we consume in our everyday lives and is the energy we can supply the fastest to consumers.
The Electricity Policy Branch is looking for innovative and self-motivated individuals interested in research and policy development as well as capable of handling a wide range of project responsibilities.
Our vacancies (2 in each):
- Policy Analyst, Markets Policy; and
- Policy Analyst, Transmission and Distribution Policy.
This role will research and develop options for legislative or regulatory refinements, including literature reviews, ongoing environmental scanning activities and statistical analysis to support the development and implementation of electricity policy. Further duties include: planning, supporting and coordinating projects, developing terms of reference for ongoing research and stakeholder identification.
Both positions will monitor trends and current issues and support the accurate and timely completion of correspondence. Supported by strong writing skills, the analysts are able to gather, synthesize, integrate and interpret multi-faceted information from a wide range of sources and perspectives to support policy initiatives within the division.
Success in this role requires an understanding of how government works, sensitivity to political issues, the ability to multi-task and learn complex issues quickly while working under tight deadlines.
A writing test is required. Please review the Retail Market Review Committee's Power for the People (www.rmrc.ca/RMRC_Highlights.pdf) to prepare.
