* Engaging with clients regarding whole lifecycle methodology and overlaying carbon management on that process;
* Engagement with built environment clients at senior level;
* Embed carbon and energy management within design and delivery activities;

Candidate spec:

The role involves mentoring of junior staff, contributing to winning new work and will often be client facing at a senior level.
Ideally but not essential you will have experience within a similar role and would have helped clients previously with consideration of future challenges such as climate change as well as embedding energy reduction, carbon management or sustainability within projects, particularly in the early phases. Mandatory is a background in built environment consultancy (project management, advisory or engineering) with a willingness to learn and a passion and drive for helping clients transition their thinking in response to the climate emergency - reducing the operational and embodied carbon footprint of the built environment.
