A rare opportunity has arisen to join one of the foremost organisations dedicated to helping governments and businesses around the world transition to a low carbon, sustainable future.

As Head of Assurance Services, you will take up an influential and pivotal role in helping develop and deliver assurance services to clients around the world. Furthermore, you will be joining at a time when the organisation will be embarking upon an exciting international growth programme.

This position offers an uncommon opportunity for an experienced manager and technical leader in Carbon and Sustainability Assurance to take up a truly exciting post within a first rate specialist provider.

Your role will lead the overall programme of work, including team management responsibilities and internal governance processes for all climate assurance services. The department has a strong focus on quality assurance in compliance with appropriate sustainability footprinting scheme standards.

It goes without saying that your technical background across audit, assessment and assurance within carbon and environmental standards will be excellent and you'll have the vision and innovation to lead the service line and develop the services moving forward. A great deal of autonomy will be afforded and this is something you might be lacking in your current role. In addition, you'll possess strong stakeholder management skills, engaging with senior members of organisations to promote the business and services you provide.

You'll have experience of carbon footprinting and sustainability standards including GHG protocol for scopes 1 and 2, ISO 14064-3, PAS 2050 and PAS 2060. Green finance is an area they're doing an increasing amount of work in so if you have experience of this, that will be a bonus. You'll also be able to demonstrate strong qualitative and quantitative skills, sound verbal and written communication skills and previous experience of managing a Team.

Based in either London or Amsterdam, this position is immediately available so if you tick the boxes, are interested and would like to find out more, call Katie on 01202 888 986.
