25 Nov Director – Net-zero & Energy Management
We’re delighted to be looking for a strategic and commercially minded Net-Zero and Energy Management lead for a leading real estate provider. Working largely with institutional investors within an “operational” real estate context, the successful incumbent will help to define and expand on the service / product offerings around Net-Zero and Energy Management.
With such a significant focus on Net-Zero industry-wide currently, many of the clients you will be working with have set or are in the process of setting Science Based Targets (SBT’s) and the successful incumbent will have the opportunity to lead the design and delivering of the service line around the journey to net zero carbon.
With operational control of a significant property portfolio, totalling more than 4500 properties, another significant part of your role will be to optimise the operation of the most energy-intensive properties under management.
Whilst we are not necessarily looking for an Engineer, we are looking for a candidate with strong technical capabilities across energy & carbon management. Specifically, you will also have solid knowledge and exposure to benchmarking, regulation and reporting frameworks that are commonplace in REIT such as GRESB and REEB, as you’ll also be responsible for building and portfolio level reporting and benchmarking activities.
Applicants should also have extensive experience of energy management, ideally at portfolio level, with solid data and reporting expertise. Since this is effectively a head of business unit role, you should be able to demonstrate a track record of building profitable service propositions, albeit with the caveat that this is with an existing client portfolio and isn’t reliant on new business outside of that.
Please note that we will endeavour to review your application within two weeks and, if there is interest in your candidacy, a Consultant will be in touch. Unfortunately, due to the significant amount of applications we receive, we are unable to provide individual feedback so if you have not heard from us within two weeks, please consider your application unsuccessful. Thank you for your interest.
