Changeworks has been leading the way in delivering low-carbon living and tackling fuel poverty for over 35 years and
we are offering an exciting opportunity for a Data and GIS Consultant in our busy and growing Consultancy team.
We are looking for candidates with a demonstrable track record of managing data-informed projects with a high
level of knowledge about data analysis and data management.
Based within our Consultancy Team, the role requires effective working with a diversity of Changeworks projects and
external clients. 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.
We are looking for a person who will be able to draw on a range of experience to deliver data-informed projects using
a variety of tools including GIS software (ArcGIS Pro and ArcGIS Online). You will develop and manage
methodologies for the efficient communication of analysis results with outputs like dashboards, infographics and
online StoryMaps. You will also be able to help clients manage the necessary data sharing agreements, contracts,
and permissions, to ensure a smooth flow and transfer of data between parties. An essential part of the role is
to be able to work effectively as part of a team that includes the Senior Data Consultant and our two Data
Overall, we are particularly looking for a person who likes being a ‘data and GIS specialist’ in a non-specialist
environment, who will enjoy learning more about the energy efficiency and low carbon sector and help Changeworks
deliver its ambitious decarbonisation goals.
Changeworks has over 35 years’ experience in delivering high impact solutions for low-carbon living. We work
collaboratively with partners, organisations and householders to drive transformation in energy efficiency and
to tackle fuel poverty.
Changeworks is a great place to work. We hold Investors in People Platinum accreditation (something only a few
organisations in Scotland have), and we were nominated for employer of the year by the Edinburgh Chamber of
Commerce this year. Our staff overwhelmingly would recommend us as an employer too.
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.
We are a growing organisation, and this role is crucial to the delivery of our ambitious objectives. We want to
decarbonise homes in Scotland on a massive scale, and that needs talented individuals like you to help us
deliver on our objectives. You’ll receive full training plus coaching and mentoring.
We offer a wide range of staff benefits including flexible working, bike to work scheme, an excellent pension scheme
and 26 days paid holiday plus 9 public holidays per year.
At Changeworks, we welcome and encourage applications from everyone.
