Policy Officer – Net Zero

Posting date: Friday 26th March 2021

Application deadline: Applications will be assessed as soon as they are received, until the suitable candidate has been appointed. It is hoped that interviews will be scheduled week beginning 12th April.

This is an exciting position within the UKGBC team, supporting the organisation as it seeks to inform and influence both national and local government on progressive policy making in relation to net zero carbon in the built environment.

Policy and advocacy have always been central to UKGBC’s theory of change, and the organisation is very well respected amongst politicians and officials, the private sector and other key stakeholders. The Policy Officer will support the objectives of the Advancing Net Zero programme, which is galvanising action amongst the private and public sector, and support UKGBC’s wider public affairs and policy work on all matters relating to carbon mitigation. There is likely to be a slight weighting towards non-domestic policy due to planned projects – both new build and existing assets – but by no means exclusively.

The individual will deliver specific projects, events and consultations, with extensive engagement and facilitation of UKGBC’s largely private sector membership base. There will be regular engagement with a wide range of Government and Parliamentary stakeholders, including at ministerial level. The Policy Officer will already have a good grounding in relevant policy issues, and be comfortable with getting up to speed rapidly on the brief, working collaboratively both inside and outside the organisation.
