Sustainability Manager (Carbon)
£55k pa + excellent benefits package
London, SW1A 

The Houses of Parliament Restoration and Renewal Programme has been established to tackle the significant work that needs to be done to protect and preserve the heritage of the Palace of Westminster and ensure it can continue to serve as home to the UK Parliament in the 21st century. This is an enormous and unprecedented undertaking, which is expected to be the most complex renovation programme of any single building the UK has ever seen.  We’re building diverse teams and are looking for a talented Sustainability Manager (Carbon) to join us in this hugely challenging project.

This specialised role holds responsibility for the development, implementation, and management of the R&R Net Zero Carbon Strategy. It’s a varied job which involves defining the boundaries of R&R’s carbon footprint and gathering and utilising data to support and inform the carbon reduction pathway. The successful candidate will work across the programme to ensure support for the Net Zero Carbon vision.

We’re looking for candidates with demonstrable success in a similar role within a construction/architecture/engineering related discipline, with a relevant degree. You’ll have a good understanding of the issues of operational and embodied carbon, experience of delivering carbon reduction projects, and will be familiar with working in a public sector environment.

Candidates should apply by submitting a CV and cover letter stating suitability for the role. Please state in your cover letter if you believe you have any current or potential conflicts of interest relating to this role.

We look forward to receiving your application by noon on Wednesday 9th February 2022.

Successful candidates will be required to complete security vetting to a minimum Counter Terrorist Check (CTC) level obtained through the Parliamentary Security Department (PSD). Candidates are required to pass these checks before a start date can be confirmed. Applicants should also be aware that, depending on the role applied for, if they have resided outside of the UK for a total of more than two of the last five years, they may not be eligible for vetting.
