You will also be involved supporting staff and students in project work and awareness-raising.
To succeed in this role, you will be an experienced environmental manager, knowledge and experience of environmental management systems is essential. With problem-solving skills, the ability to work effectively as part of a team and a strong ability to influence others in sustainability matters, you will be expected to operate in a highly professional manner, building and maintaining effective relationships across the University.
As a University we are proud of our achievements in environmental sustainability so far; however we recognise there is much to do. You will be joining the University at an exciting time as our commitment, determination and team grows even further.
