Job description

Logo JobgetherYour missions

In 2019 Cornwall Council declared a climate emergency and agreed to support the recommendations proposed in the Climate Change Plan and related emerging Climate Change Action Plan. Achieving the ambition of the motion’s resolutions will require significant action from nearly every service from within Cornwall Council and our partners. It will also need action from every person, community and business across Cornwall.

The programme therefore needs effective management, governance and participation at multiple levels acknowledging that some of the actions require a system wide approach, particularly in the facilitation programme, whilst other actions will remain within council services to deliver.

The post holder will facilitate the development of policy frameworks required at both a local and national level to deliver on the target for Cornwall to become Carbon Neutral by 2030. This will be a key role in shaping the way that many services will deliver key functions and resources during the coming years, involving projects that will be worth hundreds of millions of pounds. The post holder will lead on the development of significant, specialist, complex and high profile projects which will enable both the Council and partners to deliver on its carbon neutral ambition.

Fairness and inclusion are at the heart of our vision for Cornwall.
