Changeworks, Scotland’s leading environmental charity delivering high-impact solutions for low carbon living, is recruiting for an Energy Consultant (Retrofit). If you have a background in building physics and domestic energy modelling and excellent written communication skills then this is a fantastic, career-making opportunity.

You will have a solid understanding of domestic building health, domestic building fabric, energy efficiency interventions and domestic low-carbon heating, as well as ventilation. You will also be able to engage with different audiences and be capable of writing reports for social landlords.
