Brighton and Hove has been selected as one of the first cities to coordinate a local campaign to inspire steps to cut carbon emissions by 10% in 2010, this being at the heart of the 10:10 low carbon campaign. We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic and motivated graduate to drive and ensure the delivery of this campaign through a 40-week collaborative project between the University of Brighton and Environmental Protection UK.
The key objective of this project is to deliver the Brighton and Hove 10:10 low carbon campaign to agreed objectives, budget and timelines to support sign up and action by local organisations and individuals through the delivery of events, workshops, training and peer to peer networking.
This opportunity, as part of the Government’s shorter Knowledge Transfer Partnership (sKTP) scheme, will offer the successful candidate an opportunity to play a major role in the delivery of the UK’s first 10:10 City campaign, an iconic and ground breaking local climate change campaign that will act as a national case study for community based action on climate change.
Key attributes: The successful candidate will probably be a recent graduate who is able to work autonomously, is passionate about environmental change and a low carbon future, is pro-active and able to work on multi-stranded projects and has event management and public relations skills enabling them to communicate through a number of mediums to a range of stakeholders from senior managers to members of the public.
The package: Early responsibility for a high profile project with a locally based national organisation.
Interviews are planned for 16 April 2010
