Your new company
As a Retrofit Project Officer you will join Mendip District Council, also working in partnership with Frome Town Council in Somerset. The Somerset Retrofit Accelerator project is an initial 6 month position, a project aimed at engaging with all parts of the supply chain involved in whole house low carbon home retrofit - from homeowners through to building supply merchants.
Your new role
You will be key in generating demand - your role will include the delivery of a series of online Eco Open Homes events over a six month period, supported by the Centre for Sustainable Energy and resilience teams at both Mendip and Frome councils. You will recruit home owners to join the virtual open home, assist with filming and live streaming of events, and take ownership of all follow-up communications. Your role will also involve developing a 'Green Directory' for Somerset, utilising connections made at events as well as knowledge from other trainers and professionals.

In order to succeed in this position you will ideally have an existing knowledge of working within sustainability within the built environment - if you haven't worked in this field then you may have a keen interest or passion for this topic. You may have a background in events, or in website development, as well as excellent project management, coordination and communication skills.
What you'll get in return
In return you will receive an initial 6 month contract offering 3 days per week work across this time-frame. You'll be paid a competitive daily rate of pay for your work which could be offered to you either as a fixed payment (at intervals) or as a daily rate paid to you on a weekly basis.
