Vacancy information

Our lawyers create and shape the legal framework in energy and climate change and advise on the delivery of DECC’s business.

Whether you are experienced or newly qualified, the vacancies within our legal team provide you with the opportunity to work at the heart of big, headline-grabbing issues. The work involves advising on the development of government policy, which often involves high profile public law issues, and EU and international law. DECC lawyers work with Parliamentary Counsel on primary legislation and draft secondary legislation. We also provide robust support in taking decisions, which are often controversial, and in defending challenges to them. Departmental lawyers also give support to DECC’s unique commercial and contract work.
