CONTRACT TYPE: 1 Year Fixed Term Contract
OPERATIONAL AREA: London including Groundwork South offices based in Surrey & Sussex, Kent & Thames Valley
LOCATION: Denham / Iver or Kent
At community charity, Groundwork South, we are changing places and changing lives across the South of England, one green step at a time.
Environmental and social regeneration charity Groundwork South is looking to recruit a Senior Project Officer (SPO) to join our Green Doctor team. Green Doctors work on a variety of projects, delivering home energy and water efficiency visits. These visits are a mixture of installing low cost measures, providing advice and guidance, and referring residents on to further services and agencies. We are increasingly working on projects which have a strong health or financial inclusion focus.
Working alongside the London team, this post will be responsible for the day to day management of the Green Doctor programme as well as forming and maintaining stakeholder and client relationships across multiple partnerships; networking and outreach experience is an advantage. The SPO will be also responsible for the line management of Green Doctors working in the field.
You should be happy leading and working as part of a team as well as working independently to manage your own workload. You will possess the necessary experience to enable you to oversee the day-to-day management of multiple projects, ensuring they are delivered on time and within budget and to a high quality.
You’ll also have excellent interpersonal skills in order to form and maintain multi-agency partnerships with strong written communication skills to allow you to produce reports, evaluations and funding applications.
You ideally will have a good knowledge of fuel poverty and the effects it has on the health and wellbeing of vulnerable people, along with the negative health implications of living in a cold home.
The post-holder also needs to maintain a flexible approach to the role as it develops and our Energy Services programmes change.
Full UK driving licence is required and access to your own vehicle for which you will need to be insured for business use.
