Company Name: Public Power Council

Zip: 97232
Job Title: Energy Analyst
Number of Openings: 1
Position Type: Miscellaneous Positions
Posting Start Date: June 26, 2018

Salary Per: Per Year
Work Time Type: Hours

Job expectations:

The holder of this position will perform a variety of tasks, based on the current needs of the Public Power Council.  In general, the person will be engaged in two roles: independent work on tasks of a highly technical and quantitative nature, and support for the activities of senior staff.  Other tasks may be assigned at the discretion of PPC management.  The holder of this position will initially be expected to master rapidly the complex body of knowledge regarding the operations of the Bonneville Power Administration and the Pacific Northwest electrical power system and to quickly develop an area of expertise in a relevant area where they will be acknowledged as the staff expert (and a regional expert) in that area.  It is anticipated that the person will be assigned increasingly demanding and complex tasks, as knowledge and experience are gained. The holder of this position needs to be capable of determining what needs to be worked on and what needs to be learned, even in the absence of explicit direction from senior PPC staff.


The energy analyst will be expected to disseminate information from their work via written materials and oral presentations, both before groups of other technical staff, as well as PPC Executive Committee meetings and elsewhere.


Additional competencies:

The candidate must provide samples of work as a student or in previous employment that demonstrate writing and verbal skills essential to effective performance on the job.  The candidate must demonstrate the ability to work effectively with others and to give and take criticism, superior verbal skills, and the ability to work independently without a great deal of supervision.

Experience Required:

The candidate must have a BA/BS degree and demonstrate superior academic performance while pursuing that degree.  It is advantageous (but not required) that the candidate have some exposure to the energy industry.  The candidate must demonstrate a relevant academic course of study or background and a high level of achievement in dealing with complex quantitative problems – a collegiate major or significant academic work in a quantitative field is normally sufficient to demonstrate this background and achievement.
