[closed] Join our team: Chief Technical Officer wanted

We are looking to recruit a Chief Technical Officer (CTO) to lead on devising and delivering our strategy for a zero carbon energy system at the local level.

Our goal is clear: a zero-carbon energy system by 2050. We see our role as catalysts of innovation and our ethos is being community focused, collaborative and inclusive. We care a lot about our impact, where we maximise leverage and aim to make it tangible, visible, replicable, scalable and lasting.

We are looking for someone who shares our values and understands our mission to prove that we can meet our energy needs in a way that’s good for people and good for the planet. We are a small team of passionate, flexible and committed individuals and as an organisation we ‘punch about our weight’.  We do need some specific skills, but more than that, we are looking for individuals who are open to exploring and developing new ways of doing things, who are proactive and driven to achieve change, whose motivation is the overall wellbeing of our communities and our planet.

The appointed person will need to think strategically and act practically as part of the Low Carbon Hub senior management team as well as be a key player in our wider network of partners including academia, local authorities, business and communities.

This is an exciting role that allows for a lot of autonomy, entrepreneurial spirit as well as practical real-world application and people management.  

If you’re committed to achieving a zero carbon and socially just energy system where benefits are felt by all, and you thrive working in a fast-paced and changing environment, then we’d love to hear from you.
