NEA, the national energy efficiency and fuel poverty charity, is currently recruiting for an experienced, enthusiastic and self-motivated Project Development Co-ordinator to assist the charity to deliver innovative projects to tackle fuel poverty.  Working in partnership with central and local government, fuel utilities, the health sector, consumer groups and NGOs, NEA aims to eradicate fuel poverty and promote energy efficiency to low-income and other vulnerable households.

This is a maternity cover post and will be responsible for the delivery of a range of projects which deliver affordable warmth services for low income and vulnerable householders.

The post holder will need good organisational skills, excellent written and communication skills as well as an understanding of energy efficiency and the needs of low income, vulnerable or disadvantaged householders.  The post will involve giving energy advice to householders and the successful candidate must be able to demonstrate experience and qualifications in doing so. The post holder will also assist in the identification of opportunities for the delivery of new projects.  This will require an understanding how partnership working may be developed with local authorities, housing providers, energy sector partners and community sector or health sector agencies. The post holder will also help to maintain and extend NEA’s profile with regional stakeholders in the North East.

This post provides an exciting and rewarding opportunity to help deliver projects that can change lives.  NEA’s project work aims to bring improvements to the health and well-being of low income and vulnerable householders. At the same time NEA’s projects also help to meet environmental and sustainability goals.

The post is based at NEA’s Newcastle office.  NEA is a national charity and there is an expectation that delivery of project activity may also require periodic travel throughout England.  This post will report to a Project Development Manager based in Newcastle.

The closing date for applications is noon on Monday 13 July 2020.
