Hackney Council is looking for someone who is analytical with a good attention to detail to manage our energy accounts. As an Energy Account Officer you will be part of a team processing our energy bills and looking for ways to drive down our Carbon emissions within our Schools and Council buildings. Your work will play an important role in making Hackney greener and more efficient. You will have plenty of opportunities for growth and development within the team. You will be working in new, collaborative ways across departments and with partners in other organisations.

You will receive energy bills, process them, journal recharges and manage payments to suppliers. You will also respond to any queries about energy cost and consumption as well as supporting metering projects. You will also analyse data and be involved in energy procurement for the corporate contracts and energy reporting.

There are opportunities to be involved with energy efficiency, advanced metering and renewable projects. You should have experience of the energy and utilities sector and understand account billing procedures. You should understand environmental issues and the principles of energy management.

To thrive in this role, you should enjoy working in a high pressure environment. You will need to follow strict procedures in your work and manage workloads to meet tight deadlines. You must be familiar with a range of IT and energy data packages, particularly Word and Excel and a financial management system like CedAr. We will also need you to get involved with some administration, arranging meetings, taking minutes and preparing documents.

Hackney is one of the UK's highest performing local authorities, serving one of London's best places to live and work. We have achieved a huge amount: our services, our schools, our public spaces are all amongst the very best. We have changed the reputation, not just of the Council, but of Hackney itself. Bringing jobs and investment into the borough, securing the legacy from the 2012 Games, and making this a place of which we can all be proud.

When applying, there will be a number of questions relating to the post on the application form. It is essential that you complete the application questions, responding to each using examples of your skills, knowledge and experience. You are not required to submit a supporting statement or CV.
