The role

We are looking for two Sustainability Officers to work across the Sustainability, Air Quality and Energy team to create, manage and deliver environmental sustainability projects, ensuring that residents, businesses and organisations are involved at every stage of project design and delivery.

You will use your creativity and technical knowledge to design and deliver projects with the community. Projects will build on the recommendations of Camden’s Citizens’ Assembly on the climate crisis and support Camden’s new Clean Air Action Plan. Projects could include working with businesses in the Camden Climate Change Alliance to raise awareness about their climate and air quality impacts; developing renewable energy projects with community energy groups; working with schools to drive environmental improvement; and measuring and reporting on the outcomes of Camden’s environmental programme.

You will report to Sustainability Projects Manager but also work closely with other senior officers working across the team’s entire remit (sustainability, air quality and energy) whilst having significant input into other aspects of the Council’s environmental sustainability strategy and policies as required.

About you

You will be able to demonstrate an excellent understanding of environmental sustainability in an urban setting. You will be creative and solutions focussed. You will enjoy working with people and have a keen eye for detail and strong analytical skills.

Excellent numerical and written and verbal communication skills with the ability to express and present complex information accurately, clearly and concisely both orally and in writing are skills vital to the role. Strong Excel skills would be desirable.
