This is a great opportunity to make a real difference by joining the Climate Action Framework project team, our whole institution response to the Climate Emergency.
About the role:
In May 2020, the University of Bath declared a Climate Emergency and set out 11 Climate Action Framework Principles to frame our ‘whole institution’ response, including our commitments to achieving net zero, but also our commitment to addressing climate change through our core mission of education and research - Climate change and the University of Bath.
The team has a clear remit detailed in our Climate Action Framework. As the project continues to evolve, this role offers an exciting opportunity for you to shape the process, prioritising areas of focus and seeing a real impact from the project.
Under the leadership of the Project Lead, you will take the key role in managing the programme, including prioritisation, work planning and governance across the University-wide scope. This role will also take the lead on developing strategic responses on specific organisational climate issues – working through options analysis, stakeholder engagement and business case development as required.
To help drive this important work forward we are looking for a candidate who is passionate about climate change and has professional experience of managing sustainability programmes or projects and reporting progress to a governing board.
This role is a 0.5 FTE, and we are open to different flexible working arrangements – for example the role could be arranged as 0.6 FTE school term-time only.
We are looking for someone who can articulate complex ideas for a wide audience, and is confident in their sustainability knowledge. The post holder should be comfortable working with colleagues at all levels of the organisation, with an ability to support others in seeing linkages between their areas, or proposed projects and the climate agenda and engage them in the process of working through solutions.
Whilst knowledge of the higher education sector would be an advantage, many of the challenges faced by the University in responding to the Climate Emergency are similar to other sectors, so broader experience would be equally welcome.
