Are you passionate about the environment and want to make a difference? Do you want to work with communities to reduce their environmental impact and achieve net zero?
We are looking for an enthusiastic and dynamic candidate to join PECT, working on our innovative new project, Peterborough Accelerating Net Zero (PANZ).
Local low-carbon solutions are essential to achieve net zero, and cities can lead the way for that change. Many have plans to achieve Net Zero, but need the skills, resources, and funding mechanisms to implement them.

The project is being delivered in partnership with Peterborough City Council, Energy Systems Catapult, Nordic Energy, EdenSeven, Cambridgeshire County Council and PECT.
For 30 years PECT has been developing and delivering projects which help to protect and enhance the environment. Our vision is for sustainable places where the natural environment is healthy, communities are involved in their area, health and well-being is improved for all and resource use is responsible and does not compromise the needs of others, now and into the future.
