Role

Changeworks is the leading environmental charity in Scotland. We give people and organisations practical support to live and work more sustainably. We deliver the Home Energy Scotland service in the Highlands and Islands and South East Scotland.

We are looking for an enthusiastic and motivated person to work as our Partnership Advisor, providing a range of support to Home Energy Scotland South East’s Partnerships team. By working closely with partners across South East Scotland we ensure we can reach those most at risk of fuel poverty and refer and signpost them on for further support.

You will oversee referrals made by partner organisations to Home Energy Scotland, supporting householders with tailored advice on energy efficiency, affordable warmth, micro-renewables, sustainable transport, water and behaviour change. You will provide administrative support to the Partnerships team and have an opportunity to contribute to the Advice Centre’s programme of outreach events with partners, such as workshops and advice surgeries as well as training events for existing and new partner organisations.

You will have experience of working in a customer facing organisation, with people from all backgrounds. Your excellent communication skills will help you engage with householders and partners alike and relay some technical information to a non-technical audience. You will have good IT and organisational skills and be good at listening.

This opportunity offers a challenging and stimulating position in the environmental and charity sector.

Benefits

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 remain working at home, where possible, in line with Scottish Government advice. This post would have typically been based at our Edinburgh office (36 Newhaven Road, Edinburgh) however we are currently designing our new ways of working. Over the coming months we will be looking to offer increased flexibility about where we work, in a hybrid of home and office base depending on the needs of each role.
