With the introduction of a new strategy, we have brought two teams together with over 25 staff and volunteers. We are developing a new way of working and have created this exciting new role to help things run smoothly and increase our efficiency. The role sits across both of our dedicated teams – Low Carbon Communities and Affordable Warmth Services.

We are looking to recruit an enthusiastic Administrator to support the delivery of our services across both teams. This means you will be exposed to a variety of work and be involved in a range of different projects and activities.

Joining us means you become part of an exciting and innovative organisation that really cares about its employees.

About you

If you can provide effective, high quality organisational administrative support in a friendly and professional manner we’d love to hear from you.

You are a people person with a ‘can-do’ attitude and a love of planning and making things happen.

You will have excellent organisational and administrative skills to support the team and enjoy working in a fast-paced environment. You will have good attention to detail and a willingness to carry out a wide range of tasks quickly and efficiently.

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.
