Chief Executive Recruitment
Martin Cave, Chair

“This is an outstanding leadership opportunity to shape a rapidly changing energy sector and transform the way Ofgem works to make a lasting difference to consumers.”

Martin Cave, Chair

Welcome to Ofgem from Martin Cave, Chairman


You will be joining us at an exciting time. The CEO will sit at the heart of delivering our current and future agenda and shaping how we work in the future. Since I joined Ofgem as chair in October last year, I have become aware of two things in particular. First, Ofgem colleagues in Glasgow and London are very professional, hard-working and strongly committed to our primary goal of protecting the interests of current and future energy consumers. And second that the pace of change in the energy sector has become very rapid.

This second development means that we at Ofgem will have over the next few years to adapt what we do and how we do it, to meet the new circumstances. The decisions that Ofgem will take during the next five years will make a lasting difference to the energy industry and help keep energy costs as low as possible for consumers, while ensuring we all benefit from cleaner sources of reliable energy.

The speed of change is such that Ofgem will also need to become a more adaptive and responsive organisation so it is better able to protect consumers in what will be a more complex energy system. You will need to lead this transformation while retaining our people’s passion for protecting consumers.

We are looking for someone who will relish the challenge of playing a big role in the transition of a major sector of the economy, and in the transformation of its regulator.

I hope you feel inspired to join us as this role offers an exciting, influential and diverse challenge. If this sounds like you, please get in touch to find out more about the role. I look forward to hearing from you.

Martin Cave, Chair, Ofgem
