With our proven success, our team needs to grow. You will be central to our small dynamic team that has been making a difference throughout the West Midlands for over 22 years. We are a small team with huge reach and are looking for someone with a passion for sustainability who will be able to fit in quickly and contribute and deliver for our partners.

We work with customers across the UK as well as the region, with recent projects including work for the Climate Change Committee, the Environment Agency, the West Midlands Combined Authority, local authorities, universities and businesses. This is an ideal opportunity for someone with over one year’s experience in the provision of sustainability advice or consultancy, wanting to lead on the delivery of similar projects to help grow our organisation.

The main benefit to our business and purpose of this job is to provide efficient and effective project management and delivery, and sustainability advice to deliver our mission.
