The V&A has an ambitious target to be Net Zero by 2035 for Scopes 1,2 and 3. A huge amount of work has taken place to embed knowledge and build governance structures to deliver on our net zero ambition, including making sustainability a core value at the museum. To help deliver our ambition, we are looking for highly adaptable project manager.

This will improve data collection for our Scope 3 emissions and enable us to drive behaviour change to reduce carbon emissions from business travel through the development of carbon budgets. This role requires stakeholder engagement and inter-departmental collaboration across the entire organisation to deliver this change project effectively.

The Project Manager will be flexible, adaptable and have the capability to support the delivery other projects within the department.
