  About the Job

Climate Change & Carbon Reduction Officer – initially a one year contract
(£26-£28.6K with potential progression to £32k)

This is an exciting and rare opportunity to work in one of the most beautiful landscapes in the UK covering the North York Moors National Park and Scarborough Borough. Working jointly for both the Authority and the Council, this new post will take a lead on climate change issues and reducing carbon emissions of both organisations’ activities to achieve net carbon zero by 2030.

We‘ll want you to champion the cause of climate change, to develop plans for carbon reduction and oversee their implementation across the organisations. Whilst the post is initially a one year contract, if continued the scope of the role will expand to include the wider geographical area. To be successful, we’ll need you to demonstrate your;

• Motivation and enthusiasm for tackling climate change issues;
• An aptitude for research, collection of data and action planning;
• A keen interest in finding credible emissions offsetting schemes;
• The ability to apply theory in a practical setting;
• Strong presentation and facilitation skills.

You’ll find that you are working with skilled, dedicated and supportive colleagues; and you will have the chance to take advantage of our excellent personal development and flexible working opportunities.

The National Park and surrounding area is a superb place to live and work with excellent schools and good access to main transportation links. Whilst the post is based at the Authority’s Headquarters in the attractive town of Helmsley (with travel to Scarborough as necessary), it is expected the post will involve a significant amount of home working.

Please feel free to give Ian Nicholls, our Head of Corporate Services, a call for an informal discussion on 01439 772700
