An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Project Officer to join the Your Energy Sussex (YES) team at West Sussex County Council.

It is a 1 year fixed term contract, ideal for a recent graduate looking for their first full-time role in sustainability or energy and will give a fantastic grounding to someone looking to launch a sustainability career!

YES has recently started an EU Interreg 2 Seas funded project to increase the adoption of renewable energy in business clusters which will run until the end of 2019. The aims of the project include the development of a modelling tool for the assessment of suitable technologies for business clusters; the development of ‘living labs’ in each region in which to validate the tool; and in the last year of the project the use of the tool in other business clusters. This new role will be to assist the BISEPS Project Manager in the delivery of the ‘Living Lab’ at Manor Royal and other aspects of the BISEPS project working with the wider Your Energy Sussex (YES) team and key stakeholders.

The role requires professionalism, enthusiasm and a willingness to accept responsibility. You must also be able to communicate confidently and effectively with a wide spectrum of people internally and externally and at all levels. Occasional travel to Belgium, the Netherlands and France may be required.
