A new opportunity has arisen as an Eastern New Energy Project Officer to work within the Environment Strategy Team, a dynamic group of professionals committed to delivering low carbon measures within homes and business premises, supporting Suffolk’s communities to benefit from the transition to a low carbon economy and ensuring growth in Suffolk is inclusive.

We are looking for someone:

  • with strong and demonstrable project management skills, preferably within a sustainable energy-related position
  • who is highly organised and pays attention to detail
  • with excellent communication and interpersonal skills to work co-operatively with colleagues at all levels.

You will be working on the European Regional Development Fund ‘Eastern New Energy’ (ENE) project in Suffolk. Led by the University of East London, this aims to understand and remove the barriers that prevent us rapidly decarbonising our communities, buildings, transport, and lives.

The Project Officer role will include:

  • developing and delivering work for the ENE project, achieving all contracted targets whilst meeting the ERDF Operational Programme 2014-2020 reporting requirements
  • supporting the development and delivery of a Suffolk Climate Emergency Plan in collaboration with ENE partners and the Suffolk Climate Change Partnership
  • providing strategic and project management support to develop innovative business cases and funding models for multi-stakeholder low carbon energy projects that deliver a financial or strategic return to the Council and its partners, recruiting and engaging stakeholders as required in order to develop and implement these models
  • monitoring and reporting project outcomes to stakeholders.

This organisation positively encourages the use of technology to communicate and engage, but on occasions there may be a requirement for you to travel using reasonable and suitable means available to you and agreed by the authority.

The ENE project will be receiving funding from the England European Regional Development Fund as part of the European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme 2014-2020. For more information visit:  www.gov.uk/european-growth-funding
