Job Details

techUK’s Associate Director for Climate, Environment and Sustainability is responsible for techUK’s strategic response to climate and environmental challenges.

The team covers one of the most innovative and fast-moving policy areas in the UK and internationally. It focuses not only on the sustainability impacts of the tech sector itself, but the ability of digital technology in supporting the net zero transition of other sectors.
This means working to both respond to the needs of members – briefing and advising them of policy changes and market developments - and the demands of UK government and its agencies, to help them design, deliver and evaluate policies in areas such as net zero, energy efficiency, sustainable chemistry, circular economy, and resource management.

It also requires engagement with adjacent sectors, supply chain actors, government, and its agencies, to support the integration of digital solutions in sector’s net zero transitions, with a particular focus on energy, mobility, cities and in using digital twins.

You will be a focal point for sustainability for all techUK’s 20 programmes to help ensure we are consistent with our messaging on climate, and to ensure we deliver content with integrity and rigor.

In addition, you’ll be managing techUK’s work on wider business responsibility issues, such as responsible sourcing, modern slavery and ESG reporting, product safety, among other topics.
The role will require you to deliver against a range of financial and performance targets and to manage a complex workload with competing demands.

Key responsibilities

  • Coordinate techUK’s work on climate change and sustainability issues, working across programmes and functions to ensure a high level of integrity, consistency, and rigor.
  • Monitor, evaluate and respond to climate and environmental policy developments that impact the business practices and policies of our membership, working with members and leveraging cross sectoral partnerships to grow the influence and reach of techUK.
  • Oversee the publication of reports, thought leadership, newsletters and briefings and the organisation of a series of events and activities in support of the annual plan.

The role reports into the Director of Markets and has overall responsibility for four members of staff.
