About the role
The purpose of the role is to ensure that Europe’s power sector functions in an efficient, flexible, clean and competitive manner. The focus of this work is to remove legal barriers to the creation of a clean energy market and to ensure that it complies with environmental standards, minimising its impact on public health, the environment and the climate.
Progressive and innovative legal action has the potential to transform the EU energy landscape and to drive investment in sustainable alternatives. A focus of the position is to ensure that European countries implement an energy transition which maximizes the use of carbon neutral energy resources and minimizes the reliance on gas during coal phase-outs in relevant countries.
The successful candidate will be fluent in English, have a law degree or equivalent and relevant legal professional qualification in an EU jurisdiction. Significant relevant legal experience in an EU Member State and knowledge of EU energy laws and policies, the functioning of energy markets, and recent policy and legal developments is essential (knowledge of electricity markets is essential, knowledge of gas markets would be an advantage).
This role will initially be contracted for an initial 12-month period. ClientEarth anticipates offering the post-holder a permanent contract at the end of this initial period.
ClientEarth is an equal opportunities employer and welcomes applications from all sections of the community.
Please note that ClientEarth will only be able to employ those who have the legal right to work in the country where this post is based.
