£45,000-£50,000 per annum
Full Time

It's ensuring a sustainable future for world famous historic buildings

It’s taking every opportunity to make a difference. And it’s providing insight and support that takes the whole household forward. This is what makes working for the Royal Household exceptional.

The Royal Household is working hard across our locations and operations to reduce its impact on the environment, using everything from energy efficient LED lighting to hydro-electricity generating plants to ensure efficient running of its sites.

You'll join us as the dedicated person for all aspects of energy and environmental management across the complex and historically royal estates.

You'll provide the direction for the Energy Management Strategy and Environmental agenda. And working with teams across the organisation you'll be the catalyst for activity and commitment to energy management.

Be it sustainable construction, waste reduction, or energy efficiencies and utilities, you'll be the central point of advice for business leads to identify and implement improvements.

Compliance, legislation and risk management will also be a key part of your role. You'll put in the procedures and reporting systems to ensure we move towards our energy goals.

Key to this will be raising the profile of the Green Champion's network across the organisation; together you'll identify opportunities for continuous environmental improvement and develop our teams' awareness.

It’s the diversity of activities that will really challenge you, which in turn will expand your knowledge.

And in an environment that is constantly evolving, you'll identify and develop longer term strategies in order to actively help shape our future.

With suitable professional qualifications, you'll have energy and sustainability experience at a management level.

Previous experience of working across a multi-site, multi-use facility would be an advantage, and some experience of working on historic buildings, or heritage sites would also be beneficial.

Technically competent and with outstanding communication and consultancy skills, you'll quickly establish credibility and influence at all levels.

You'll also have substantial project management experience with a comprehensive understanding of business processes, (including reporting and budget setting). And in particular, you'll have demonstrative capability in reviewing and delivering change effectively.

With excellent analytical skills and an engaging written style, you can produce high quality reports for a variety of audiences, and can communicate complex issues succinctly and appropriately.

Your decision making ability will be important. Along with an organised and logical approach you're able to balance strategic and operational priorities, and will know when to delve into the detail or when to retain a wider perspective.

Finally, you'll be forward looking with a digital approach seeking to continually improve in everything you do.

In return you will be rewarded with a comprehensive benefits package, including 33 days holiday (inclusive of Bank Holidays), a 15% employer contribution pension scheme (with the option for flexibility to increase contributions or draw down as salary) and support for your continued professional development.
