PA's Global Energy and Utilities team currently seeks a Denver-based consultant with energy policy, regulatory analysis, and strategy experience to support our work helping energy investor and utility clients effectively navigate diverse and evolving investment and operating environments.

* Are comfortable performing, critically evaluating, and communicating quantitative analysis; and
* Enjoy working on a range of projects simultaneously in a fast-paced team environment.

You will be part of a talented client-focused team that helps our clients understand and quantify uncertainty in an increasingly diverse policy and regulatory landscape.
