We are looking for a Senior Officer to join our Low Carbon Communities team, a tight knit group of engagement specialists who deliver a diverse mix of projects supporting household decarbonisation. We need an experienced and enthusiastic individual to help develop and lead a programme of low carbon living projects.

You will be working within the Low Carbon Communities delivery team, and with a range of external partners and stakeholders, to lead projects through all stages, including conception, development, design, delivery and monitoring. You will have line management responsibility and oversee key external relationships and contracts.

We are looking for an exceptionally organised and highly motivated project or programme manager, able to work across various workstreams and priorities, helping anchor and support the team and bringing creative ideas and solutions to our work. You should be a skilled communicator and a team player, with the ability to engage, enthuse and influence the people you work with.

This is an exciting time as we hone our focus on decarbonising the home and you will play a key role in bringing to life our new community engagement strategy, leading on the development and setting-up of projects to ensure they are planned and delivered to a high standard.


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.
