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. An opportunity for a Senior Consultant has come up in our busy and growing consultancy team.

This role is based within our Consultancy Team and will report to the Principal Consultant. The team work across the sustainability agenda for internal and external clients. They specialise in energy efficiency, heat decarbonisation and renewables in the built environment, fuel poverty and pro-environmental behaviour change. As Senior Consultant you will grow Changeworks involvement in the low carbon energy transition, making a telling strategic contribution and developing and delivering related service, project and business opportunities.

You will develop and deliver services that build on building data analysis and incorporate best practice in energy efficiency retrofit, low carbon heat and wider energy systems to decarbonise homes. Identifying and developing business opportunities and securing work for Changeworks and the Consultancy team will be a key aspect of this role.

Using your project management skills you will manage the delivery of high quality services and projects. You will allocate work, lead, oversee, monitor and sign off on the work of the team. You will manage projects, ensuring they achieve their aims and objectives and are delivered on time and to budget.

You will have at least 3 years’ experience delivering in a relevant professional and/or project management role. Experience of working in a relevant environment is also essential (e.g. academic, business, technology or community).

You’ll be joining Changeworks at a very exciting time as we continue to drive forward our strategy to help us scale our work and achieve our ambitious goal of decarbonising homes across Scotland.

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.
