Changeworks is expanding our portfolio of services to better support people to reduce their energy use and tackle the climate emergency. To build on existing services and develop new successful ones, we need someone to play a critical role in monitoring and improving our performance, as well as setting services up for success with onboarding and maximising data collection. That’s where you come in.

With your background in contracts, funding, or accounts, you’ll help us achieve our goals through innovative and impactful services. We’re looking for your expertise and experience in contract set-up, management and reporting as well as your flair for data analysis and keen eye for detail.

You’ll work alongside operational managers, our finance team and business development colleagues to ensure we’re meeting all our contractual requirements. As well as ensuring data is managed effectively to provide insights to improve our performance, you’ll enable us to develop realistic bids and ensure new contracts are set up correctly and efficiently. Your role will be key to supporting the development and growth of our Community Engagement and Energy Advice Services.

You’ll be confident in leading by example and motivating your colleagues to continuously improve and evidence impact. This role will involve using your strong communication skills to ensure insights and key information lands well and is fully utilised. You’ll be well versed in building strong and effective relationships with teams and partners to ensure the successful definition and delivery of services and contracts.

This role is permanent and reports directly to the Head of Community Engagement and Energy Advice Services, within the Delivery Directorate.

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.

At Changeworks, we welcome and encourage applications from everyone.
