37 hours per week

Based at Harvey Road, Bilborough, Nottingham, NG8 3BB

Nottingham City Homes manages more than 27,000 homes across the city on behalf of Nottingham City Council. Our vision is to ‘create homes and places where people want to live’.

Being a Sustainability Officer at Nottingham City Homes you will be charged with modelling, gathering, analysing, collating and reporting accurate data for a range of purposes, including strategy development, grant claims, communal heating, Feed-in Tariff claims, site waste management plans and funding bids. With responsibility for ensuring successful grant claims for both capital projects and research projects, you will play a pivotal part in all projects relating to environmental sustainability, and in some cases you will be required to be the project lead for research projects.  

The Sustainability Officer will also be involved in developing the energy and environmental strategies, using your skills in building / energy modelling to provide information about current and potential performance of individual archetypes and total stock. Alongside modelling energy improvements, you’ll also have the chance to work alongside the Head of Sustainable Energy, the Innovation Programme Manager, The Energy Advice Officer and the Technical Officer to develop and deliver energy efficiency, fuel poverty and environmental sustainability campaigns.

Your sound understanding of, and enthusiasm for energy and sustainability issues, including fuel poverty, will be backed up by a degree or equivalent, ideally relating to buildings and construction, engineering or energy. An understanding of research through a post graduate or research qualification would be an advantage, but you will definitely have a proven track record of analysing data and using the evidence to make recommendations. 

An understanding of building physics, energy analysis or modelling is essential and experience of carrying out Green Deal Assessments, Home Energy Assessments, or SAP Assessments would be desirable. Knowledge of GIS and databases will be vital. Above all, you will have the communication skills to share your enthusiasm for sustainability with a wide audience. Now we need people who share our passion for making a difference to join our committed team.

Salary and benefits:


In exchange for your hard work you will receive a fantastic benefits package that includes:

  • Flexible working
  • A generous holiday entitlement and additional holiday purchase scheme
  • Government pension scheme
  • Clear pay structure and annual salary reviews in line with national agreements
  • Learning and development opportunities

Nottingham City Homes offer a variety of additional benefits, more details can be found on our website.
