SEGEC Specialist, Low Carbon Transition

Job description

Job title: SEGEC Specialist, Low Carbon Transition
Salary: £42,276
Location: Glasgow/Remote 
Department: Economic Opportunities
Grade: 6
Duration: Permanent
Closing date: 27 September 2021
Job ref no: R00124

We are continuing to follow government guidance to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our employees, partners and customers. The selection process for this role will also be undertaken virtually.

This is a fantastic opportunity to join Scotland’s national economic development agency. At Scottish Enterprise we are committed to growing the Scottish economy for the benefit of all, creating more quality jobs and a brighter future in every region.

We continue to encourage the adoption of new business models, create value-led workplaces, and address global climate challenges – both in Scotland and internationally.

To support this, we’re looking for a Scottish European Green Energy Centre (SEGEC) Specialist to play a key part in the delivery of our new heat decarbonisation national programme. This is part of a wider recruitment programme by our Low Carbon team to capitalise on key opportunities and provides a chance for the right candidate to make a major contribution to Scotland’s transition to Net Zero.

About us

Scottish Enterprise is Scotland’s national economic development agency. We help Scottish businesses to grow nationally and internationally, to become more efficient and innovative, and to access the funds they need to develop. We also attract overseas companies to invest in Scotland.

The difference you'll make

You’ll help internal and external partners achieve their low carbon ambitions by proposing solutions, supporting overarching priorities and driving successful project delivery. In line with this, you’ll promote EU funding opportunities to eligible companies in Scotland, and will sometimes manage EU projects. You’ll also work with EU partners, Scotland Europa, and represent Scottish Enterprise at key events. This will involve delivering presentations and networking for future opportunities.

You’ll use your industry knowledge to support Scottish Development International (SDI), as well as our Growth Investment and Place and Business Services & Advice teams.

There’ll be a strong focus on developing partnerships with other business support agencies in the EU, representing our organisation at various boards and EU partner programmes.

The qualities you’ll bring

Communication comes naturally to you, and you can build lasting relationships with partners and companies. Influencing stakeholders at all levels is not something that fazes you.

You should have confident presentation skills, and be eager to work in a busy team. You’re skilled at analysing research, producing reports and developing ideas.

Multi-partner project management experience would be beneficial, as would knowledge of the energy sector and European funding procedures.

Most of all, you will be keen to deliver results and make a real difference in Scotland’s transition to Net Zero.

Application dates

Closing date 27 September 2021

  • 1st stage interviews will take place on 06 October 2021
  • 2nd stage interviews will take place on 15 October 2021

We place value on work/life balance in our employment package

We offer a range of benefits, financial and non-financial, designed to reflect our culture and recognise, reward and develop you through your career. We understand that applicants have different needs and preferences. Our strategy encourages a personal approach, recognising working life, wellbeing, planning for the future and lifestyle.  

This strategy has also been acknowledged with external awards and accreditations including Investors in People, Stonewall Scotland and Best Companies.

We’ve been awarded two Princess Royal Excellence Awards for our activity in promoting a resonant culture across the organisation, as well as for our youth development and engagement programmes.

We are currently developing our working practices for when offices re-open. We aim to create a flexible work environment where work is an activity, not a set place or defined hours.

With this in mind, we expect that you will have the option to continue to work remotely within the UK or at your base location. You will remain available for face-to-face visits and meetings at our offices or other locations as appropriate.
