Are you an engineering graduate or renewable energy professional with a passion for energy efficiency and decarbonisation? Are you a creative, motivated problem solver who wants to be a part of a team making a real difference and tackling the climate emergency?

Changeworks is looking for a new Energy Consultant to join our growing and highly regarded Consultancy Team. The ideal candidate will have a demonstrable track record of managing projects with a high level of knowledge of low or zero carbon technologies and their implementation on the built environment.

Based within our Consultancy Team, the role requires effective working with a range of stakeholders across a diversity of Changeworks projects, so the ability to deal with multiple tasks and meet deadlines in a supportive team environment is essential. You will have a commitment and passion for this field, be organised and proactive, as well as having a creative streak that will allow you to identify innovative solutions, work round problems, identify new areas of work and promote and disseminate our work.

Changeworks is a great place to work. We hold Investors in People Platinum accreditation (something only a few organisations in Scotland have), and we were nominated for employer of the year by the Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce this year. Our staff overwhelmingly would recommend us as an employer too.

The Climate Emergency has resulted in ambitious national targets to reduce carbon emissions from the built environment and reduce rates of fuel poverty. This has driven a significant increase in the number of pilot and large-scale interventions delivered by Changeworks and external organisations in this area. These include area-based domestic energy efficiency retrofit and decarbonisation projects and programmes.

We are a growing organisation, and this role is crucial to the delivery of our ambitious objectives. We want to decarbonise homes in Scotland on a massive scale, and that needs talented individuals like you to help us deliver on our objectives.


We offer a wide range of staff benefits including flexible working, bike to work scheme, an excellent pension scheme and 26 days paid holiday plus 9 public holidays per year.
