Sustainability Officer - Full Time

We are looking for a new team member to join our corporate Sustainability Team, developing policies and projects to help put sustainability at the heart of the Royal Borough's work.

We are looking for a highly motivated person with enthusiasm, innovative ideas, strong influencing skills and the ability to work flexibly and collaboratively.

  • Delivering complex and innovative energy efficiency projects and renewable energy projects, and ideally experience with energy monitoring.

  • Developing and delivering sustainability strategies and programmes.
  • Providing specialist advice on sustainability issues, e.g. planning applications, tender documents, energy studies, or similar.
  • Multi-disciplinary partnership working (with elected Members, senior officers, public agencies, private organisations and the community sector).
