Your next role

It’s time for the next step.
You’ve earned it.

Have you ever wanted to drive sustainability and develop projects to help tackle climate change?

A south west based London borough has a detailed Climate Strategy and Action Plan set to reach net zero carbon targets of 2050 and 2030 for the Council. This 30 year plan sets out their vision and the key actions required to get to net-zero carbon across four thematic areas (the Green Economy, Buildings and Energy, Transport and Greening), as well as how the Council is going to decarbonise its own operations by 2030.

The Plan extends across five main themes, which establish the focus on how the council plan to reach their goals. These include sustainable energy and carbon reduction; delivering clean air; our natural environment; resources, waste and water management; sustainable travel.

In your role as Climate Change Projects Officer, you will be responsible for:

  • Assist in the development and writing of evidence base research and supplementary policy guidance relating to Climate Change / Sustainability policy and projects.
  • Work on climate change and carbon reduction initiatives, primarily the development, review and monitoring of the Council’s Climate Change Strategy and Action Plan.
  • Developing, with the lead officer, the Council’s energy planning policies to ensure CO2 reduction, renewable energy targets and income from the associated Feed-in-Tariffs are met.
  • Providing robust research, evidence and innovative thinking to the future team in matters relating to evolving national policy on climate change, renewable energy, carbon reduction technologies and to devise techniques for the local implementation of new policy.

This is a full time role, on an initial 3 month contract, with opportunity to extend beyond. Flexible/hybrid working is available.

The council is open to applicants form a variety of backgrounds and experience levels, therefore rates are negotiable. So, if this sounds like something you would like to get involved with, do get in touch with your hourly/daily expectation.

We would like to attract talent from all corners of the energy and sustainability world for this role. Our commitment is to an equitable recruitment process so feel free to apply in any way that suits you, via WhatsApp, video message, CV, the more creative the better
