The North East and Yorkshire Net Zero Hub is at the centre of the region’s ambitious efforts to drive a low-carbon, clean-growth future
Funded by the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), the Hub is one of five across the country, all focusing on helping the UK reach Net-Zero carbon emissions by 2050.
Our Hub combines six Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) in the region, bringing local authorities, businesses, organisations and communities together to help us achieve our goals through various programmes of work and capacity support for Local Authorities.
A Net Zero Hub Manager and small core team are based in Tees Valley Combined Authority with a Hub funded Energy Project Manager based in each of our six LEP areas. The LEPs are driving the transition to a zero carbon economy with ambitious energy strategy and innovative project delivery.
We have an exciting opportunity for a proactive and motivated individual to develop and co-ordinate a pipeline of local energy and net zero projects within the Tees Valley Combined Authority area. This role will provide advice and capacity support to help identify, co-ordinate and develop investible business cases for initiatives that will help to drive forward local net zero strategies and public sector plans. Working as a valued member of the North East & Yorkshire Net Zero Hub team the role will contribute to achieving the overarching aims and ambitions of the Hub, providing targeted support focussed on accelerating activity linked to e.g. energy efficiency, generation, storage, and addressing fuel poverty.
The successful candidate will be a strong collaborator and excellent facilitator, with the communication skills to articulate value and write compelling business cases. They will have a sound knowledge of energy/low carbon technologies and policy, along with critical understanding of what makes a project or business case investible and be able to apply this to identify and generate opportunities for project development and delivery. A strong team player, the postholder will work to maximise the benefits of Net Zero for the Tees Valley area while delivering the wider Hub agenda and contributing to shared learning and development across the Hub geography and beyond.
