Job Vacancy with Energy Democracy Project

Do you want to lead on consulting high-carbon workers to plan for a just transition in the North East?

Join Energy Democracy Project and the North of Tyne Combined Authority Mayor’s team to plan for the good, green jobs of the future.

You will lead on consulting high-carbon workers and employers within the North of Tyne Combined Authority (NTCA) area who are at risk of losing their jobs due to the climate transition, so as to ensure that an inclusive and just transition is realised. You will assist the Project Lead and Researcher on designing these consultations to identify the barriers preventing high-carbon workers and employers from transitioning into low-carbon jobs or becoming low-carbon employers. The aim of workforce consultation overall is to coproduce a package of solutions and policy proposals for an inclusive and just transition for those potentially at risk of redundancy, or those who have missed out on employment opportunities in the past in the NTCA area, for implementation by the NTCA where possible.

Deadline for applications – 25th January 2022
