Are you passionate about sustainability and tackling climate change? Are you a strategic thinker with a good track record in delivering projects? Have you got knowledge and experience in environmental issues and sustainability in local government?

Lewes and Eastbourne Councils now have a shared workforce. This post forms part of a dynamic and influential team driving forward strategy, policy and projects across the two councils. Since both councils recently declared a Climate Emergency, we need an enthusiastic, knowledgeable and self-motivated individual to drive this work forward.

You will have experience of working in or alongside local government and will understand the challenges of working in a political environment.
