Do you want to join a new team committed to climate action and delivering change? Can you bring transformative change to Church communities’ relationship with heat and energy? This role is for someone with a practical and collaborative approach to net zero who can lead churches in Scotland to decarbonise their heat and energy.

The Scottish Episcopal Church (SEC) has a published Net Zero Action Plan 2023-30 and is building a flexible and enthusiastic team to support the implementation of its ambitious Net Zero targets. It seeks experienced net zero specialists to provide support and guidance to churches and Dioceses.

About the Job: You will have equal opportunity to work at both national and regional levels.

You will act as Net Zero Clean Energy Advisor for the Scottish Episcopal Church, providing guidance, resources and support on energy efficiency and clean energy installations throughout Scotland. You will be a focal point for churches and dioceses seeking guidance on reducing their emissions through innovative technologies and provide the backbone of support for Episcopal communities’ heating and energy projects.

You will conduct strategic site visits across the Dioceses to provide practical advice on heating and energy measures and use these to develop a knowledge base for guidance across Scotland. You will use your knowledge to develop and share resources as well as explore partnerships to establish a database of key contacts in the green energy sector.

You will provide high quality advice on energy efficiency and clean energy for churches and Dioceses, helping to ensure up to date information is easily accessible. You will seek out learning and partnership opportunities to keep Dioceses and churches equipped with solutions to further grow the SEC’s Net Zero experience base.

You will also play a key role in direct engagement with individual Dioceses, working alongside the rest of the Net Zero Team to nurture relationships and help them develop their own action plans. You will use your knowledge and experience of the energy sector to guide churches along the path to net zero through decarbonising heat and energy in their buildings.

About you: You should have some experience working in the environmental management or energy sector, particularly in understanding the heating and energy systems in buildings and/or retrofit projects. You should have excellent interpersonal and written communication skills to be able to assess the energy potential of a building and demonstrate the possible solutions through a range of mediums. You should also have some demonstrable knowledge of the technical aspects of heating and energy audits and an ability to communicate these to a range of faith-based audiences.

Things you need to know: You will report to the Net Zero Delivery Director and work within a new Net Zero Team to support the SEC’s seven Dioceses (regions). This role will be remote based, however regular travel to Dioceses across Scotland will be required as well as attendance at routine meetings in the General Synod Office in Edinburgh where you will meet with the rest of your team. You may be required to work some evenings and weekends.

The SEC comprises some 300 churches, with a total membership of about 24,000. The Net Zero Delivery Director is coordinating the new team consisting of five new roles. These are Innovation Coordinator, Empowerment Coordinator, Carbon Projects and Data Officer, Net Zero Sustainability Officer and Clean Energy Officer.

All postholders will work closely as a team and provide progress reports and advice as necessary.

Starting salary is dependent on experience.

Benefits: flexible working, working from home within a remote team; non-contributory final salary pension scheme
