About the role

The Sustainability Coordinator is a wide-ranging role, which is key to delivering Bath Spa University’s sustainability objectives. The role includes leading on all engagement and communication activities, including the BSU Green Focus web pages, implementing student-facing sustainability initiatives, collecting and submitting data for awards, maintaining FairTrade and similar accreditations and assisting the Sustainability Manager in legal compliance, environmental auditing and other issues. The Sustainability Coordinator will work closely with the Students' Union and will deliver a “carbon literacy” programme to staff and students.

About you (requirements)

The successful candidate will be a dynamic, personable individual, capable of taking the initiative and seeing projects through from conception to delivery. A passion for building a more sustainable future and a general knowledge of the issues involved are essential. Strong communication skills will be core to the success of this role. A degree-level education, preferably, but not necessarily in a sustainability-related subject is required and experience in a similar role will be an advantage.

About us

Bath Spa University is focused on creative enterprise and guided by our four values of respect, inclusivity, collaboration and sustainability. We teach around 8,000 students on a set of campuses around Bath, with most being located at Newton Park, including a listed Georgian house and grounds, or Locksbrook Road, our new city-centre art and design campus. Our research centres focus on creative industries and humanities.

Our purpose is to challenge our students and staff to realise their talent and thrive, for their own benefit and for the wider good. By doing this we will think and make the world better.

The Sustainability Team sits within the Estates Department but works with and influences all aspects of the University.
