Allen & York has been engaged by one of the UK's best environmental consultancies to help them find a senior consultant to drive forward the already established and well renowned Team providing a range of services in the carbon and sustainability sector.

With buy in to this Team from the top down, you can be based in any of their offices as the Team is distributed all over the country (although there is a preference for the NW, SW or SE), your previous experience in the carbon management space in a senior position is required, in particular experience of greenhouse gas assessment, footprinting, life cycle assessments and assurance and verification. In addition, you'll be adept at analysing policy around carbon reduction, embodied carbon and how to measure and improve and a knowledge of the GHG protocol and the legislation surrounding it.

In addition to the technical requirements of the role, your ability to influence others and explain the importance of what the Team are doing is crucial, as well as your project management experience, presentation skills (to a range of audiences but in particular to senior business leaders), an astute commercial acumen and your ability to manage complex data sets. You may have managed a Team before and if not direct line reports, then project teams and a willingness to do this in the future is desirable, as is your ability to broaden the current workstreams.

In return you'll get to work with a fantastic spread of organisations in a range of sectors helping them to achieve their net zero targets through using science based targets, life cycle assessments and carbon management plans.

If you're looking to join a consultancy who invest in their Team and as a result have one of the highest staff retention rates in the country and you'd like to help them further grow the capability of the Team, call Katie on 01202 888986 ext 207.
