Can you support businesses to grow back greener? Do you have the skills to provide businesses with sound advice that will enable them to reduce both their costs and carbon emissions by adopting renewable energy, energy efficiency and low carbon solutions? If so, we would like to invite you to join our social enterprise that puts the community at the heart of a sustainable South East London. Your role will be to lead a project in collaboration with businesses based in Greenwich to secure a cleaner, greener, safer borough.

We are looking for someone with a rare combination of skills, bringing together technical and financial knowledge of renewable energy, retrofit for commercial buildings, sustainable travel combined with an ability to build partnerships.

Your role will be to run a Green Business Audit service that would enable businesses to reduce costs and prepare to meet future legal requirements for sustainable, low-carbon business practices. Our business audit would assess the following:  the feasibility of retrofitting business premises by increasing the use of renewable energy technologies including heat pump technologies: solar PV: Building Management Systems: LED retrofit: and insulation. You will also assess the benefits of conversion to electric vehicle transport, active travel planning for staff, waste reduction, and sustainable supply chain and procurement. You will assess both the business AND the environmental case for each action

This service will go beyond providing consultancy. You will support business to take the next steps including procuring the support of relevant specialists and contractors, applying for funding for electric car chargers and other measures to support sustainable travel, such as cycle storage, and assessing financing options which could include a Green Business a grant, or community share capital.

You will be supported by one trainee, and it will be your responsibility to support their learning. The role is initially for a 12-month period, but this will be extended if funding or an income from new projects can support the role on an ongoing basis.

You will have demonstrable experience in modeling the financial impacts of various actions to reduce costs and carbon emissions

It is a big and varied challenge, and we are keen to find the right person, so if you have any questions or queries about the role, feel free to contact Laura and arrange a time for a conversation with the CEO.
