Community Retrofit Project Manager (Full-time/fixed term for 2 years)

National Energy Action is a fuel poverty charity supporting households who cannot afford to keep their homes warm and safe. This post will have a leading role in an exciting community retrofit project to transform the homes of people in an area of Preston badly affected by a failed retrofit programme. The post may be based in any of NEA’s office locations or be home-based. (NB: Currently all NEA staff are working remotely while there are lockdowns in place across the country).

We are looking for someone to coordinate, manage, monitor and report on activities delivered by NEA staff and our project partners. The post is not directly responsible for overseeing the assessment of dwellings or the monitoring and evaluation of energy efficiency measures.

This post is a fixed term post for 2 years. Secondment applications will be considered – please highlight in your application if you are applying as a secondment. The post holder will report into the Head of Major Projects.

The Community Retrofit Project Manager will take responsibility for:

• Overseeing main contractor partners working on these programmes of work to deliver outputs in line with agreed timelines.
• Project data collection and regular reporting both internally and to external stakeholders
• Budget management for the programmes.
• Managing day to day delivery issues that may arise.

The post provides an exciting and rewarding opportunity to help the charity build its profile through delivery of challenging, innovative programmes of work that will improve the energy efficiency of homes and bring affordable warmth and comfort to residents.

The closing date for applications is 12 noon on Monday 8 March 2021. It is likely interviews will be held remotely via Zoom. The date currently being held for interviews is Tuesday 16 March 2021.
