Head of Energy & Carbon
£58,284 – £67,541 per annum

Be responsible for leading our ambitious net zero carbon programme.

We aim to lead the world in research and education for the benefit of society both in the UK and globally. Oxford’s researchers engage with academic, commercial and cultural partners across the world to stimulate high-quality research and enable innovation through a broad range of social, policy and economic impacts.

We believe our strengths lie both in empowering individuals and teams to address fundamental questions of global significance, while providing all our staff with a welcoming and inclusive workplace that enables everyone to develop and do their best work. Recognising that diversity is our strength, vital for innovation and creativity, we aspire to build a truly diverse community which values and respects every individual’s unique contribution.

As the Head of Energy and Carbon, you will be responsible for driving forward the university’s net zero carbon programme to reach our strategic objectives of net zero carbon and net gain in biodiversity by 2035. This includes the management of our utility procurement and data, the team that work on our building controls, carbon reduction projects across the entire estate and decarbonisation of heat. It is a high-profile role with a regular requirement to report to University committees on data, risks and horizon scanning.

To be successful in this role, you will need a good understanding of the approach needed to achieve net zero in large organisations.  You will need to be someone who strives for excellence and enjoys providing high quality analysis and data which meets stakeholder needs. You will also possess strong management and  communication skills with the ability to summarise technical detail to an engaged audience. You will have a positive attitude with a flexible and adaptable approach to your work and be comfortable when priorities suddenly need to change.

University employees enjoy 38 days’ paid holiday, generous pension schemes, travel discounts, and a variety of professional development opportunities. The range of other employee benefits and discounts also includes free entry to the Botanic Gardens and University colleges in addition to discounts at university museums.
