Want to create engaging content about innovative National Trust energy projects like this marine source heat pump scheme? We’re looking for a new Energy and Environment Communications Officer to join our central press office team in Swindon.
We look after over 300 places and spaces across the UK, from coastlines and castles to cottages and caves, to make sure that they can be protected and kept beautiful forever. Heating and powering such a diverse range of properties costs us over £6 million each year – money that could be better spent on vital conservation work. That’s why we’ve committed to generating 50% of our energy from renewable sources by 2020 and reducing overall energy consumption by 20%. No small task but an important one, which we’d like you to help us deliver.
As the National Trust’s Energy and Environment Communications Officer, your role will be central to promoting our important climate change work and cleaner energy vision. There’s a lot happening here already – we’re using heat pumps, hydro and biomass to generate clean energy – and you’ll spread the word about this and why it’s so important.
Through multimedia content, events, promotional materials, partnership work and other ways that you see fit, we want you to inspire and engage internal and external audiences in our activities, policies and campaigns. Working as part of an award-winning, multi-disciplinary team, you’ll share stories about our ambitions and achievements. You’ll visit properties to see the work in action. You’ll keep up-to-the-minute with relevant news and build great working relationships with the media and other partners. Your role will be hugely varied and worthwhile as you work to help to make a valuable impact on our vision.
