Are you wanting to make a real difference to the health, wellbeing and financial circumstances of residents in north-east London at the same time as providing solutions to the climate emergency?

HEET is a vibrant community organisation delivering practical solutions to fuel poverty, climate change and health inequalities caused by inadequate housing. Our staff team operates in a non-hierarchical structure based on equal participation in decision making and equal pay. We have a management committee composed of local residents who help guide our work, with whom our Co-ordinator works closely.

Your job will be to maintain an overview of all project activities, ensuring HEET’s services are integrated and the opportunities to make improvements to residents’ homes are maximised. You will be largely responsible for fundraising and for networking with partner organisations, ensuring the organisation has the resources needed to deliver its agreed targets.

You will need to be a self-motivated and organised person with an ability to communicate well with a wide range of people. You will need a proven track record in fundraising and networking, and an ability to work as a team member.

Major Tasks:

  • Plan, organise and deliver, in cooperation with staff and the management committee, a sustainable programme of activities that delivers HEET’s mission.
  • Secure funding and resources, and develop partnerships with external organisations, so that the project can deliver its planned services and activities.
  • Keep up to date with developments, schemes and services, locally and nationally, that might impact on HEET’s work and co-develop an appropriate response.
  • Work with the staff team to develop publicity materials and referral routes for the identification of households in need of HEET’s services.
  • Co-develop and maintain an overview of a set of key-performance-indicators (KPIs).
  • Continually evaluate, innovate and improve HEET’s working methods and develop new ideas that help HEET to achieve its mission.
  • As a HEET employee you will share a collective responsibility to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of all other HEET employees and HEET project customers, as well as ensuring that HEET is legally compliant at all times.

Please note, the role will be offered subject to satisfactory pre-employment checks, including a basic DBS check due to the nature of the work.
