In this role, you will:

  • Ensure the execution of strategies at the departmental and organizational level, both for analytical and regulatory submissions, that support business priorities.
  • Contribute to internal modelling analysis and support third-party external consultant work and their budget expectations and scope of works.
  • Analyze markets, energy utility planning environment, customer energy use, and provide useful qualitative and comparative insights.
  • Support workshops between our Gas and Electric utility resource planning analyses and reporting activities.
  • Collaborate with internal and external cross-functional stakeholders to use energy demand and other business data to support recommendations on planning and project strategies.

What it takes:

  • A degree in business administration, finance, economics, computer science, or a related resource development field.
  • A minimum of four years of related analytical experience. 
  • A demonstrated ability to learn coding languages such as R, Python, or other.
  • Prior experience with optimization models, production cost analytics, and macroeconomic modeling through software such as Plexos, Aurora, Navius, or other energy modelling tools is an asset.
  • Strong attention to detail and organization skills to conduct accurate analyses and forecasts. 
  • Excellent interpersonal and time management skills to develop and deliver presentations with succinct recommendations and supported strategic arguments.  

In this role, you will have the option to participate in a flexible work program, enabling you to work from an approved flex location in British Columbia up to 85 days a year (equivalent to approximately two days a week), subject to business or operational needs.
