Changeworks is offering an exciting opportunity for a suitably qualified professional to lead delivery of our current portfolio of Monitoring and Evaluation projects and continue the expansion of our service offering. Ambitious national targets on climate change, fuel poverty and waste have seen a significant increase in the number of pilot and large-scale projects across each of these areas delivered by Changeworks and external organisations. These include our large-scale domestic energy efficiency retrofit and decarbonisation projects and programmes. It is critical that these projects are closely monitored and evaluated to understand their social, technical, environmental and financial impact and gain insights that will inform improvements to current and future projects.
The ideal candidate and the role
Based within our Consultancy Team, the role requires effective working with a diversity of Changeworks projects and with external clients 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.
The successful candidate will be able to draw on a range of experience that will convince us that you can take a lead and continue our development pathway in this area. You will have a demonstrable track record of managing projects with a monitoring and evaluation or research focus and the ability to deploy a range of qual/quant research techniques. Above all, 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 solutions, work round problems, identify new areas of work and promote and disseminate our work. The ability to deal with multiple tasks and meet deadlines in a supportive team environment is essential.

We offer an attractive staff benefits package which includes an excellent pension scheme and 26 days paid holiday plus 9 public holidays per year.
