City of Doncaster Council has made a firm commitment to tackling the Climate Crisis by implementing a strategy aiming to achieve Net Zero Carbon by 2040. Whilst this will be a challenging target, we have several ongoing initiatives aimed at reducing emissions, and a drive to implement these improvements across the city.

To succeed in this role, you must be well-organised, hardworking and flexible with experience of providing project support in a service with high demands. We are looking for a conscientious team member with an interest in the environment and a strong drive to deliver change, that can communicate confidently with a range of internal and external stakeholders.

In return for your hard work and dedication, we can offer you the chance to be part of a great team dedicated to ensuring that all people in Doncaster thrive.
