The Zero Carbon Partnership Project Manager will play a key role in supporting an ambitious and collaborative programme of carbon reduction – driving Oxford towards net zero carbon emissions by 2040 through delivery of the Zero Carbon Oxford Partnership’s (ZCOP) programme of work.

ZCOP is a group of Oxford’s major institutions and organisations including universities, hospitals, councils and large businesses who have given their support to the aspiration of achieving net zero carbon emissions as a city by 2040. The group has committed to working collaboratively to accelerate carbon reduction and requires a co-ordinator to support the facilitation, delivery and design of this ambitious programme.

This innovative partnership approach to city-wide climate action requires significant coordination. As well as being responsible for the secretarial functions of the ZCOP, the successful applicant will oversee, design and co-ordinate activities and projects on behalf of the Partnership intended to facilitate the delivery of emissions reduction, including organising Sprint Groups, collaborative projects, knowledge sharing/capacity building activities, funding applications and being the main point of contact for the Partnership.

The successful applicant will be a motivated and highly organised sustainability professional with excellent communication and organisation skills. You will have a proven ability to build consensus, influence and negotiate as well as being familiar with project management tools and approaches to coordinate a complex work programme.
