We are looking for a highly motivated individual to help us get more renewable energy infrastructure built. Due to a significant amount of recent success in the renewable energy sector, we have a vacancy for an Account Executive to help us make a difference.

This position would suit a recent graduate, or with proven experience, with an interest in the climate crisis, renewable energy and politics at a local level (knowledge of the planning sector a benefit, but we can teach you that).

What you’d be doing:

  • Researching local and national politics (i.e. producing stakeholder analysis documents);
  • Helping to organise, publicise and staff public events (you may need to travel around the UK a bit);
  • Producing draft letters, newsletters and exhibition boards;
  • Managing databases (i.e. collating local resident feedback, tracking political activity);
  • Media monitoring and liaising with the press when necessary;
  • Writing clear, concise, compelling and engaging copy about new environmental projects;
  • Some admin (booking venues and putting meetings in the diary);
  • Be a point of contact for external stakeholders regarding our clients’ projects;
  • Helping the agency to win more work.

What we need:

  • Someone who can manage their own workload, take responsibility, and get things done in a small agency environment;
  • An interest in politics, current affairs, local government, planning, renewable energy;
  • You need to be able to write well and explain complicated things in a simple way;
  • It goes without saying that you’ll be able to use MS Word, PPT, Excel – but it would be even better if you could also build simple websites or use photoshop too.
