Interested in a career in sustainability? Then we have an exciting job opportunity for you. We are currently looking for an energy and carbon manager to join our sustainability team. For the job description and more information on how to apply, click here.

Who we are and what we are looking for:

Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) is one of the world’s leading higher education institutions and one of 24 leading UK universities represented by the Russell Group. QMUL has over 21,000 students and 4,000 members of staff and an annual turnover of £350 million. We operate across five London campuses consisting of a portfolio of large, multi-purpose buildings ranging from residencies, catering outlets, social venues and fitness and conference facilities to high-tech teaching and research/laboratory facilities.

We are looking for a knowledgeable and experienced Energy and Carbon Manager to join our small but dynamic Sustainability team. Working within the Estates and Facilities Directorate, the team is responsible for managing the university’s environmental impacts, most notably energy consumption and carbon emissions, and working with staff, students and the local community to create a more sustainable and low carbon campus.

What you will do:

You will be responsible for developing a programme of energy management projects and other initiatives to support the university’s efforts to achieve its stretching carbon reduction targets. This includes performing energy audits and conducting energy analyses to identify opportunities to increase building efficiency and minimise the environmental impacts of our activities. You will also be responsible for managing our compliance with energy regulation, our substantial energy budget, and QMUL’s transition to an externally hosted Energy Bureau Service. We are also looking for someone who will be able to implement an Energy Management System that meets the requirements of ISO50001. Given the importance of the role and the scope to create positive financial and behavioural impacts you can expect to work closely with senior management at all levels. You can also expect plenty of opportunities to support delivery of the university’s broader sustainability agenda.

What you will need:

We are looking for someone who is able to work successfully in a complex multi-site organisation interacting with internal and external stakeholders, consultants and contractors. You will need to have an in-depth knowledge of building services and demonstrable experience of delivering energy and carbon savings across a diverse and complex portfolio of buildings. Professionally qualified with a degree in an environmental, energy and/or engineering discipline (or with equivalent relevant experience) you will have supplemented this with further qualifications in environmental and/or energy auditing (or equivalent relevant experience). Experience of managing a complex energy budget is important as is your ability to be able to complete mandatory energy compliance monitoring and reporting (e.g. Carbon Reduction Commitment and Display Energy Certificates). As you will also act as the energy champion, driving positive behavioural change throughout QMUL, a confident outgoing personality and excellent communication skills are essential.

The post is full time (35 hours per week), with an expected start date of June-July 2016. Starting salary will be £40,840 per annum, inclusive of London Allowance. Benefits include 30 days annual leave, defined benefit pension scheme and interest-free season ticket loan.

Candidates must be able to demonstrate their eligibility to work in the UK in accordance with the Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006. Where required this may include entry clearance or continued leave to remain under the Points Based Immigration Scheme.

Informal enquiries should be addressed to Andrew Flett, Assistant Director (Sustainability) at sustainability@qmul.ac.uk

The closing date for applications is Wednesday March 23rd 2016 and interviews are expected to be held during the week commencing April 4th 2016.
