The UKGBC is a charity with almost 600 member organisations spanning the entire value chain, who represent the voice of the industry's current and future leaders who are striving for transformational change.

The purpose of this role is to identify the strategy and lead delivery of UKGBC's work with industry and businesses on net zero carbon buildings and infrastructure assets.

Key responsibilities:

The role requires effective collaboration with colleagues across the whole UKGBC team to ensure maximum efficiency, industry impact, and value for UKGBC members.

About you:

  • Commercial experience in the property and construction industry, with a focus on the development and construction process, including cost and finance elements

  • Technical understanding of whole life, embodied, and operational carbon of built assets

  • Experience of implementing strategies to reduce at least one of operational or embodied carbon

  • Knowledge of current technological innovations to address climate change

  • Experience of collaborative industry projects/initiatives

The built environment industry is accelerating its action on decarbonisation and the new Head of Climate Action will work closely with UKGBC members and other key organisations to plan and deliver activities that enable the delivery and operation of net-zero carbon built assets.
