Are you passionate about tackling the climate emergency? Changeworks, Scotland’s leading environmental charity, is looking for a talented individual to join its Community Engagement and Energy Advice Services team.

You’ll be working in a team that engages individuals, communities, and groups to adopt low-carbon behaviours, supporting them to take action. You'll be responsible for providing effective, high-quality administrative support and your role will be crucial in the effective delivery of our projects and services.

You must be an excellent communicator and listener, work well individually and as part of a team, and have strong organisational and time management skills.

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 delivery of impactful energy efficiency advice to individuals, community groups, and organisations.

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.
