What will this position involve?
This post will be a coordinating and supportive role to ensure the successful delivery of the Green Impact project by the specified completion dates. You will also provide added capacity to deliver an increase in pro-environmental behaviours of students and staff within the University and Union.
This is a 12 month, full time post that will deliver not only the Green Impact objectives but also enhance the capacity and impact of sustainability across The University of Sheffield as a whole.
Who would this position suit?
The University of Sheffield are looking for an enthusiastic team player who has a passion for sustainability, the environment and behaviour change. An innovative and creative thinker, you have the ability to problem-solve and successfully implement your own ideas.
Using your strong organisational and communication skills you can engage and inspire people to get involved in the Green Impact Programme, whilst effectively prioritising your work in a busy and dynamic environment.
Who are the University of Sheffield?
The University of Sheffield is a large organisation with 28,000 students, 8,000 staff and several hundred buildings. Due to the size and nature of its activities, the University places significant environmental impacts on the local and global environment.
The University recognises its impact and has made a corporate commitment to improving its environmental performance by developing and adopting an Environmental Policy. This has been in place since 1997 and provides the framework for all work in energy management, waste and recycling and sustainable transport.
Behaviour change projects form an integral part of the University’s on-going environmental management activity. The Green Impact and Student Switch Off programmes have been successfully delivered in the past eight years, and they hope to build on this success in 2017/18.
What is the Energy Team like?
We have a small, but extremely busy Energy Team who oversee the action being taken by the University to meet its carbon reduction targets. Based in Estates & Facilities Management (EFM) the team is responsible for formulating energy strategies; identifying and implementing projects to improve energy and water efficiency; managing utility cost and consumption databases and reporting on the University’s performance.
You will report to the Energy Manager who will work with you to help develop your skills and allow you to take responsibility for managing projects that will benefit both the individual and the University as a whole.
Why would the successful candidate want this position?
This is a great opportunity to begin your career in sustainability. You will learn how to implement sustainability and behaviour change projects and meet like-minded professionals who are experts in their field.
You will learn about being a team player, develop communication skills in different mediums and gain project management skills including event planning and management, project implementation and evaluation.
The full time nature of this role will enable you to develop not only the skills and outputs required as part of Green Impact, but also to work as an integral part of the energy team to create and drive forward further initiatives across the University’s staff, students and estate.
You will be given full support and training by Change Agents UK for the duration of the 12 month position and also benefit from 1:1 Professional Coaching.
