There has never been a more exciting time to take up a senior role in BEIS. We have vital work to do, helping to drive the recovery from the Covid crisis, backing business, unleashing innovation and driving the country towards a stronger, greener future – creating jobs, growth and opportunities across the UK.

We are delighted to be able to offer this opportunity to join the Net Zero Buildings & Industry group, which is responsible for an ambitious portfolio of work to drive down emissions in these sectors across the country. It is work that is as inspiring, fascinating and rewarding as it is demanding – we are delivering a genuine transformation of the economy, creating jobs and economic opportunity, showing real global leadership, and helping to preserve the planet for future generations.

This role will take responsibility for a portfolio of work across the delivery and development of the UK’s new Emissions Trading Scheme and the delivery of substantial programmes of support to industry to enable major decarbonisation projects to proceed. You will have leadership responsibility for a diverse team of c.145 staff and be accountable for expenditure against budgets of over £100m p.a. 

The role will be based at BEIS’ new offices in Salford, close to the transport links of central Manchester, and you would also have the chance to help lead the growth of that new hub. The Department is committed to making the Salford base a real centre of excellence for policy-making and delivery away from London and the South East, and we hope to find someone who shares our excitement for that as well as the decarbonisation challenge.

Apply before 11:55 pm on Sunday 26th September 2021.
