The State of Connecticut, Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) and the Public Utilities Regulatory Authority ("PURA") offers new Utilities Assistant Finance Specialists the opportunity to cultivate their accounting and financial expertise while also participating in the development and implementation of sound regulatory policy. Assistant Finance Specialists will work with an experienced team of technical staff, engineers, rate specialists, lawyers, and policy advisers to effect PURA's broad statutory mandate.
PURA is statutorily charged with regulating the rates and services of Connecticut's investor owned electricity, natural gas, water and telecommunication companies and is the franchising authority for the state's cable television companies. In the industries that are still wholly regulated, PURA balances the public's right to safe, adequate and reliable utility service at reasonable rates with the provider's right to a reasonable return on its investment. PURA also keeps watch over competitive utility services to promote equity among the competitors while customers reap the price and quality benefits of competition and are protected from unfair business practices.
Utilities Assistant Finance Specialist serves a key role in rate cases, utility acquisitions, and utility financing. The addition of the Utilities Assistant Finance Specialist will provide PURA with the necessary resources and expertise to fulfill its mission to effectively regulate public service companies.
The position will be located at Ten Franklin Square, New Britain, CT 06051. This position is 40 hours per week, Monday - Friday, from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm (flexible).
In addition, the state offers competitive salaries and excellent benefits.
