Segment Lead Analyst

Segment Lead Analyst

Are you passionate about helping Britain achieve Net Zero? If so, come and join our EDF Business Solutions team at EDF as a Segment Lead Analyst! 

The Opportunity

As Segment Lead Analyst, you’ll be a crucial analytical support to the Head of Power Purchase Agreements (PPA), helping to make decisions in running EDF’s PPA business. 

EDF is the largest buyer of renewable power from independent generators through PPAs in Great Britain, and we aim to grow our standing in the renewable industry even further.

You’ll focus on maximizing the margins we earn from signing PPAs, and ensuring they translate into excellent outturn financial performance by understanding and managing key risks and opportunities. In this role, you can make a real contribution to EDF’s PPA business and ultimately helping Britain achieve Net Zero, supporting existing renewable assets and supporting new renewable projects to be built.

What you’ll be doing

You’ll help the Head of PPA to set the right strategy to help the PPA business achieve its growth ambitions, and work on its implementation. This will involve understanding the opportunities and risks associated with our PPA portfolio – carrying out impactful analysis to help us make the right decisions, and helping to manage the overall PPA portfolio size, shape, and segmentation.

You’ll put in place effective pipeline management processes to track and manage prospects and renewals, and you will create and present insightful management / performance reports to track and monitor PPA business performance.

You’ll lead on various change-related topics for the PPA team. This could mean running small projects, managing PPA product development needs, leading on updating our proposition in response to market opportunities, feedback and risks. You’ll also set out requirements for digital and process change, to derive maximum value from current and future systems and tools; identifying areas for continuous improvement.

You’ll work closely with all other members of EDF’s PPA team, in particular the originators and origination senior managers. You’ll manage customer and competitor insight through an impactful tender feedback loop, turning market insights into meaningful actions. This will involve capturing and cataloguing feedback on competitiveness, product offerings and supplier activity to help the PPA team adapt its go-to-market strategy.


Pay, benefits and culture

Alongside a salary starting around £50,000, dependent on experience, we also have a market-leading pension scheme and offer a range of flexible benefits to support our people across all aspects of their lives. 

Your rewards package includes a choice of benefits, such as electric vehicle leasing, enhanced parental leave, health insurance, discounts, and employee pricing.

Flexible working means you can work from home (if you wish), and we’ll provide a suite of IT equipment to ensure that you can work remotely comfortably and effectively. You may also occasionally need to travel to one of our offices when required.

Corina Gardiner, PPA Management and Service Analyst, says: “I’m proud to work for EDF’s PPA team because through the work we do, we’re supporting renewable generation and making a real difference to net zero”. 

At EDF, everyone’s welcome. We strive to create an inclusive and diverse environment where everyone has a voice and where you feel confident being yourself. We’re committed to equality, diversity and inclusion. We’d like our future workforce to have an equal gender balance, represent a broad mix of people from minority ethnic backgrounds, LGBTQ+, those with a disability and supporting social mobility. 

We’re a disability confident employer and we’ll do all we can to help with your application, making adjustments as you need. 

We’ll value the difference you bring and offer opportunities for you to thrive and succeed. 

Who you are 

•    You’ll have an excellent analytical mindset and skills with the ability to understand and solve complex problems, translating analysis into recommendations.
•    You’ll have strong planning and organisational skills, experience managing diverse and multiple work streams and projects.
•    You’ll have a thorough understanding of the energy industry, and ideally some experience of PPAs.
•    You’ll be able to establish and maintain effective business relationships with key stakeholders at all levels with strong influencing skills.
•    You’ll be able to translate business strategies into clear objectives, plans and team priorities.
•    You’ll have effective presentation skills (senior stakeholders/large groups).

Even if you don’t have everything above but the role interests you, then we’d love to hear from you!
