The Low Carbon Hub is a social enterprise that’s out to prove we can meet our energy needs in a way that’s good for people and good for the planet. The days of fossil fuels are numbered, and the shift to renewable generation is gaining pace giving us the opportunity to reshape the way we manage our energy.

We are looking to hire a Marketing and Communications Manager for a 12-month maternity cover role.

You will be responsible for planning and delivering the marketing and communications strategy of the Low Carbon Hub to key groups including Members, supporters, partner organisations and potential investors.

Working closely with the Business Development Team, Social Impact Manager and Chief Operations Officer, you will develop the marketing and communications strategies for new products and services as well as delivering existing strategies to current stakeholders.

The team works with multiple partners across a range of projects and you will need to be able to represent the Low Carbon Hub at project meetings, events and actively input into plans for project delivery.

As this is a 12-month role, building good working relationships with key project partners and internal team members quickly will be vital in ensuring the successful delivery of projects.

You will also manage the Marketing Coordinator who has a particular focus on implementing the marketing and communications plan for partnership projects, new products and services. You will be responsible for ensuring their workload is appropriate and on track and support them in the day-to-day delivery of work.

As part of a small team in a busy environment, we are looking for someone who can proactively get stuck in and be comfortable working flexibly to take on ad hoc tasks as and when they arise.

If you can manage multiple projects and deadlines at once and have a desire to work in a values-driven organisation, then we’d love to hear from you.
