Changeworks is offering an exciting opportunity for a suitably qualified Senior Consultant (Energy Efficiency Retrofit) to join our busy and growing Consultancy Team. Candidates will have a demonstrable track record of managing projects with a high level of knowledge and understanding of energy efficiency retrofit.

Based within our Consultancy Team, the role requires effective working with a diversity of Changeworks projects and external clients from across sectors. Our busy Consultancy team works across the sustainability agenda and has a particular specialism related to energy efficiency, heat decarbonisation and renewables in the built environment, fuel poverty and pro-environmental behaviour change.

You will have a commitment and passion for this field, be organised and proactive, as well as having a creative streak that will allow you to identify innovative solutions, work round problems, identify new areas of work and promote and disseminate our work. The ability to effectively manage staff, deal with multiple tasks and meet deadlines in a supportive team environment is essential.

The Climate Emergency has resulted in ambitious national targets to reduce carbon emissions from the built environment and reduce rates of fuel poverty. This has driven a significant increase in the number of pilot and large-scale interventions delivered by Changeworks and external organisations in this area. These include area-based domestic energy efficiency retrofit and decarbonisation projects and programmes. You will be part of an organisation that sees success as delivering interventions that have both positive outcomes for people and their wellbeing as well as building fabric.
