We’re looking for a new Project Manager to work within our Retrofit Team portfolio, developing and delivering innovative new projects that take a community and citizen-led approach to the clean energy transition and tackling climate change.

You will be part of an interdisciplinary team with an array of dedicated and skilled colleagues, subject matter experts and other project managers.

We expect Project Managers to oversee two to three projects at a time, of varying timescales and complexities. Working in the innovation space means there will always be a variety of fascinating new challenges and opportunities to tackle but you will be working within an organisation set up to develop and support just these kinds of projects. 

Typical projects you could be Project Managing include: the development of new energy and retrofit products and services, the creation of new climate policy approaches, the delivery of on the ground research and engagement and the oversight and delivery of new retrofit construction projects. The mix of projects you work on will be dictated by your experience and capacity and at all times you will work under the supervision of our portfolio manager, Retrofit Team Lead Jonathan Atkinson.
