Do you want to join an ambitious organisation committed to making our world a better place? Changeworks is growing, and we need to expand our Project Management team to manage our energy efficiency projects all over Scotland.

About you

We need a strong relationship builder, an effective communicator and a driver of quality to help us deliver our important work to deliver low-carbon housing across Scotland and driving Scotland’s journey to Net Zero.

You will understand the complexities of successfully delivering retrofit projects and programmes driving quality and achieving high impacts in challenging timescales. You will be adept at developing relationships and working in partnership, a skilled communicator managing and motivating your team.

About the role

We act as a Managing Agent for Local Authorities and Housing Associations delivering a range of energy efficiency and decarbonisation programmes working in homes across Scotland. You will work within the Building Decarbonisation Team to deliver domestic retrofit projects, managing retrofit contractors and ensuring projects are delivered to budget and 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.

About Changeworks

As Scotland’s leading environmental charity delivering low carbon solutions for over 35 years, we recognise climate change is the most significant threat to the environment and our way of life.

We firmly believe that our people are our biggest strength, and our goal is to provide a rewarding and fulfilling career in line with our values of collaboration, integrity, passion, innovation and empowerment.

We are proud of the expertise and enthusiasm of our people and have over 200 employees and volunteers across Scotland, from the Borders to Shetland.

Working at Changeworks is working for an organisation who believe that a work-life balance is essential, and inclusivity and diversity are important to us. We therefore invite applications from a variety of backgrounds.

Working for Changeworks will not just give you the opportunity to make an impact on the environment around you in your role, but you will also be part of an ambitious and growing organisation who are committed to our vision of a world where everyone can live, work and enjoy life with a low carbon impact.

At Changeworks, we welcome and encourage applications from everyone.
