From £50-60,000 pa plus benefits, dependent on relevant experience and current skills.

Job Role

We are experiencing a period of unprecedented change across the energy industry. Net Zero delivery is a growing challenge and opportunity for our members, who are now facing growing requests from customers and government to report on their climate commitments and decarbonisation plans. Ensuring this is delivered with integrity and our members can make credible claims in the interest of creating a competitive market for lower carbon industrial products is of paramount importance.  BEAMA anticipate that Net Zero compliance will grow to be a significant requirement on the supply chain, alongside other areas of regulatory compliance we are now more familiar with.  BEAMA therefore need to grow our services for members to reflect this and support our members in their transition to Net Zero, lobbying government and key stakeholders to ensure this transition evolves to establish a competitive market for all our members, allowing multinationals and SMEs alike to progress their Net Zero commitments. 

We have already begun a program of support with significant growing interest from the membership. This secondment will be instrumental in continuing to increase our support services on this important topic as well as strategically plan for how we might grow this service in months and years to come.
