Job Details

Do you want to help shape policy for a net zero carbon future in Northern Ireland - delivering cleaner transport and sustainable communities? 

Energy Saving Trust is an independent organisation dedicated to promoting energy efficiency, low carbon transport and sustainable energy use. We aim to address the climate emergency and help to deliver the wider benefits of clean energy as the UK transitions to net zero.

We empower householders to make better choices, deliver transformative programmes for governments and support businesses with strategy, research, and assurance – enabling everyone to play their part in building a sustainable future.

Our policy team leads our engagement with all four UK governments and other organisations about the transition to a new energy system, focusing on homes, transport, and community energy. We develop our policy insight based on the programmes we deliver and by working closely with academia, NGOs and other stakeholders.

As a Policy Officer working in a wider UK team, your main responsibility will be to help influence the policies of the Northern Ireland Executive around decarbonising homes, road transport and supporting the development of community energy. You will build relationships with policy and political stakeholders from a range of organisations across Northern Ireland and lead on consultation responses in Northern Ireland.

You should have an understanding of environment and energy issues, specifically in buildings and/or transport gained through work experience in a policy related role or in an academic (PhD or early career academic researcher) context. An excellent communicator, you will have a good understanding of the political and energy policy landscape
