Energy and Sustainability Officer

Hackney Council is passionate about its housing stock, and committed to continue to maintain and enhance its homes and estates in both the short term and into the future. The guiding principles for investment are defined in the Council’s new Housing Asset Management Strategy 2019-2027. This document also sets the ambitions for the quality of our varied housing stock, ranging from Victorian street properties and pre-war mansion blocks to tower blocks on large estates. This is an exciting time to join Hackney and contribute to the strategy’s aim of homes in which people want to live and are proud of.

The Council’s Asset Management service is changing to enable the team to achieve the ambitions set in the strategy, and, as a result, they are looking for an Energy and Sustainability Officer who will embrace new ways of working, and improve the long-term energy efficiency and sustainability of the Council’s existing housing stock.

As an Energy and Sustainability Officer you will play a role in delivering the new asset strategy through supporting the development and implementation of design and technical standards for the Council’s capital investment programme in our existing stock of more than 30 000 properties. You will be responsible for promoting measures to increase the energy efficiency and sustainability of council homes among our residents. You will be part of a team of specialist officers, improving the design, energy efficiency and sustainability of our homes, blocks and estates, and ensuring they are easy to maintain, accessible, and safe.
