National Energy Action is looking for a Director of Homes who will lead the charity’s work to improve the lives of people in fuel poverty through improvements to building fabric and heating systems. It will strengthen NEA’s expertise and authority in this space across our activities.

 The long-term solution to fuel poverty is for homes to be more energy efficient and more affordable to heat.  As National Energy Action’s Director of Homes, you will be at the heart of this vital transformation.  You will be part of our senior leadership team.  You will be responsible for our practical projects to improve the homes of people in fuel poverty; and you will bring expertise to critical debates on retrofit, decarbonisation and affordable warmth.

This is a great time to join a passionate, committed and expert team.  If you think that everyone should be able to afford to keep their homes warm and safe; if you have the experience to drive our work in these areas, if you want to change for the better how people live their lives – we would love to hear from you.

This is a full time, permanent post with a flexible location in the UK.  The successful candidate will be part of the Senior Management Team, along with three other Directors, the Deputy Chief Executive and the Chief Executive.
