Location: Home-based within the Midlands, South East or East England, or London office.

Salary: up to £37,000 per annum, depending on experience

We are looking for driven, knowledgeable individuals, passionate about decarbonising transport and improving air quality and committed to sharing their experience and enthusiasm with others.

You will initiate and build positive working relationships with local authorities to grow the reach of the programme and share your knowledge through high-quality workshops, webinars, short reports and follow-up support. You will have proven experience in a similar consultancy role. Excellent knowledge of low carbon transport, including vehicle electrification, charging infrastructure and sustainable travel, is essential. Experience of working with or for a local authority would be advantageous, as would knowledge of chargepoint or public sector procurement.

Within the team, you will have opportunity to work on varied, additional projects as agreed by our government funders. As an example, we are looking for an individual to lead the creation of a high-profile and much needed online toolkit for local authority officers. You will independently bring together evidence, expertise and lessons learnt from diverse sources to write concise, impactful guidance on a wide range of low and zero carbon transport measures, working closely with national government policy leads and other stakeholders. You will be confident in your research skills and have excellent written communication skills.

We are looking for proactive, experienced, flexible individuals who value a collaborative approach. You will be confident at managing stakeholders and projects from start to finish, balancing priorities and keeping track of programme activities.

Reporting to the Programme Manager, you will be working in a small, enthusiastic team of five, both home and office-based.

We have two full-time, permanent positions. We are looking for two colleagues to specifically support local authorities in the Midlands and across South-East and East England. The Midlands role will be permanently home-based. For the South-East/East role, there is the option to work from our London office or be home-based, or a blended working approach.

Once Covid-19 restrictions are eased, we expect the roles to involve travel within your region a couple of times a month, for example to deliver a workshop for a council, and occasionally further afield within England to assist colleagues.

To apply, please forward your CV and covering letter addressing the knowledge and skills required in the job description to, citing the reference number you are applying for in the subject line.

We want to ensure that our recruitment process is inclusive of and accessible for everyone. If you are interested in applying for this role and think you may need some additional support or reasonable adjustments made to any part of the recruitment process, please get in touch with the people team.
