Sustainable Living Officer

£21,000 – £24,000 per annum (depending on skills and experience) plus 6% employer pension contribution.

Are you a practical and business-friendly environmentalist who wants to help develop and implement a range of exciting sustainability programmes for large businesses and property development schemes?

Do you have excellent data management skills, a good understanding of sustainability issues and are educated to degree level in a relevant discipline?

Then you could be the perfect person to join Bioregional’s growing team of technical sustainability experts working with private and public sector organisations to create better places to live, work and do business.

Bioregional champions a better, more sustainable way to live.

Founded in 1994, we are a charity and social enterprise that has worked with partners in business, local government and the NGO sector on hundreds of transformative projects. Using our One Planet framework to guide our work, we have partnered with major developers to create pioneering eco-communities and with retailers to create award winning eco-products and efficient business operations

Our aim is always to show how moving towards genuinely sustainable living can be attractive and affordable for people, communities and businesses. 

You will primarily sit within the corporate sustainability team but will work on a variety of wider projects depending on experience, likely across three business areas:

Corporate sustainability – helping major brands to develop and implement their sustainability strategies.

Sustainable property development – supporting construction and development teams looking build healthy, sustainable buildings and communities.

Innovation – supporting the creation and implementation of innovative solutions where a fresh approach or new business model is required in the areas of energy, housing and construction.

You will work across our project delivery team and be line-managed by either our Sustainability Analyst or Sustainable Places Manager, depending on your experience.

The role is based at our offices at the multi-award winning BedZED eco-village in Hackbridge in the London Borough of Sutton, Surrey, which is thirty minutes by train from London Victoria and 30 minutes from Blackfriars on the Thameslink line.  The post is full time and permanent.
