Advisor – Net Zero Verification

Posting date: Thursday 8 April 2021

Application deadline: Applications will be assessed from 7 May 2021 onwards, until the right candidate has been appointed.

The Technical Advisor will lead a major project in 2021/22 to explore potential routes for a net zero carbon buildings verification scheme. This offers a fantastic opportunity to contribute to the building sectors’ net zero transition at an exciting moment in time, and to gain valuable experience working with leading businesses and other stakeholders.

This project will build on the success of UKGBC’s Net Zero Carbon Buildings Framework Definition and existing UK energy/carbon reporting schemes to ensure it drives real impact in the market. The project will link with existing pieces of work, including the development of net zero performance targets and UKGBC’s Whole Life Carbon Roadmap project, and will require close engagement with professional institutions, UKGBC members and the wider industry.

The ideal candidate will be passionate about sustainability, have strong stakeholder engagement skills, knowledge of global green building certification tools, a positive, can-do attitude and thrive in a busy working environment. You will report to the Director of Business Transformation and work closely with the Senior Advisor – Advancing Net Zero, and the rest of the UKGBC Advancing Net Zero team.
