1 year Fixed Term Contract

Hackney Campus 

£40,793 per annum 

This is an exciting role for someone who is keen to make a real difference in environmental sustainability in a large organisation. New City College launched the first phase of its Green Strategy in January 2021. This is a new area of work for the college at this scale and we are now looking for someone who can help drive this work forward. The postholder will lead the implementation of the Phase 1 of the Strategy and will play an instrumental role in developing an ambitious and deliverable Phase 2 of the Strategy.

A proven track record in delivering measurable reductions in an organisation’s carbon footprint and experience of developing environmental sustainability policies and action plans are essential requirements from the postholder. Experience of working in further education is desirable but we are also keen to hear from candidates with experience in the wider education or not-profit sectors. We are looking someone with strong interpersonal skills, comfortable in a busy work environment with ability to meet tight deadlines and an interest in contributing to the wider college life.
