Would you like to be an environmental management consultant for Green Element? We would love you to be; if you are passionate and mad for the environment! We are a small company with some big clients. Green Element is a growing environmental management consultancy and is looking for a person that holds environmental issues close to their heart. Green Element are looking to recruit a dynamic, versatile and positive individual who believes in companies helping other companies and organisations to reduce their environmental impact. We at Green Element feel very strongly that a moral and ethical company that practices what it preaches will really make a difference in a positive way.

We feel that if you work in a company like ours then you work as a team for our common goals. We need to work together on everything. We need to push boundaries and ensure that everyone around us is as sustainable as possible. Sustainability means BCorp, Environment, ensuring that we take care of each other and our clients, we produce the highest quality work and least but not least we enjoy every minute of every day doing what we love. (That does not mean that you will love every minute, hopefully most!)

We offer a job that will be colourful and varied, helping companies reduce their environmental impact. We see this job starting off very much helping our CEO and Founder based in Edinburgh on tasks that he is unable to complete because of time constraints. The tasks below are indicative of the sort of work you would be completing at the beginning. By being integrated into the Green Element cosmos in such great detail from the get go you will be in a fantastic position to help and learn from the rest of the team having already got to know our clients and been the first port of call for the new clients.

You must be tech savvy, understanding how tech works is not imperative but with a knowledge or a want of knowledge is imperative. You will be key and instrumental in helping Will and the team grow the CRM, phone system and the integration of it all. We are at an exciting time at Green Element and we need help with the growth and structure.

The job will start with a 2-month internship, hopefully followed by a role as a full time Green Element colleague. We expect you to out grow your role as admin and helper of Will, by learning and understanding what needs to be done as an Environmental Management Consultant.

The final role requires a hands-on attitude to data gathering. In the future you will be working independently from client sites as well as from home, so you should be good at managing your time to fit around clients as well as your own needs. The role holder will be gathering data for clients’ sustainability monitoring, processing it, analysing it and presenting it back to clients with insights. This will involve downloading data from portals, requesting data from a wide range of sources; persisting with data owners and utility companies’ customer services on phone, by email, and by online chat to resolve data issues. You should have excellent analytical abilities, and the ability to work with confidence with large data sets. You should also be comfortable with meeting clients, and have strong communication skills and the ability to listen.

You will be methodical, able to listen to client’s needs, and have a fantastic eye for detail. You should be able to work independently, and to be inquisitive; unafraid to question anything you think needs to be questioned. The ability to express and discuss complex issues by e-mail, skype and over the phone is essential. The role would suit a graduate with a year’s experience.

The future role will involve:

  • Data cleansing- identifying conflicts, gaps and finding resolutions from data providers or through alternative interpretation
  • Organising, maintaining and analysing the collected data in Excel and Power BI
  • Translating the data into usable information and insights in real world situations
  • Communicating the findings to end users through Power BI, PowerPoint and other communications platforms
  • From the data and reports created, drawing conclusions and recommendations for changes to improve energy, carbon & financial savings for clients
  • Frequently visiting clients as required, many of whom are London-based (but not all)
  • Performing research, reviews and analysis for ad hoc requests and blogs.
  • Working closely with the senior analyst, sometimes working collaboratively on Skype
