Project Manager – Sustainability Team

 

Creativity, ambition and focus on people is what matters at Barnsley Council. Our award-winning Council is on an exciting journey of change.  It’s all about putting people at the heart of everything, listening to, and working alongside our communities. We’re now more innovative, more efficient and provide better value for money.

Shape a better future with us

We’re thrilled to have received Investors in People (Gold) status for how we lead, support and develop people.  We would like you to be part of our success and help us to take change further. Join us on our journey to a brighter future. By working together with each other and with our communities, we can take pride in improving lives.  Let’s make a better Barnsley for everyone.

Your role in our journey

As Project Manager in the Sustainability & Climate change team you will be supported by the Group Leader to lead on the delivery of a range of projects which support the Boroughs Zero40 and Zero45 ambitions.

You will work in close partnership with a range of public / private organisations, community and voluntary groups and those who work, live and study in Barnsley. You will lend your expertise, knowledge and innovation to a range of projects that will have outcomes on housing, energy, the environment, health, skills and the economy. Crucially, you’ll also help us develop, deliver and evaluate strategies, projects and services to identify need and support our transition to a low carbon Borough.   

 

What you’ll need

This is a permanent opportunity to join a highly skilled team and your role is vital to meeting the council and wider borough sustainability objectives.

As a minimum, you’ll need a relevant level 6 qualification and/or evidence in a related field and will need to show evidence of your commitment to continuous professional development. A recognised project management qualification and experience of managing projects is vital.

Ideally, you’ll have a track record of partnership working, preparing successful funding applications and working with providers to ensure that funding conditions are met. You will be innovative and lead on the planning and delivery of sustainability projects, including the process of strategy and policy formation from beginning to end.  You’ll be someone who’s at ease with partnership working and should be comfortable working with stakeholders at a variety of levels.

Resilient, able to ‘get things done’ and a natural collaborator, it is your talent for communication that really sets you apart.


A lot to look forward to

Here at Barnsley, we live and work by four important values: honesty, teamwork, excellent service, and taking pride in what we do. You will benefit from the flexibility of hybrid working and will have access to the local government pension scheme and a range of employee benefits. We’ll do all we can to support you in being truly excellent. We prioritise learning and enabling you to achieve your potential.  We’ve created a development process that lets you grow in the way that suits you - whether that’s training to be a leader or learning flexibly online. That’s one of the reasons why we achieved IIP Gold, and why you’ll find your career here inspiring and rewarding.
