BEN Support Officer Job Advert
Fancy playing a central role in the success of community energy initiatives in Bristol? Bristol Energy Network is looking for a new Support Officer!
Hours: Part-time (0.4FTE) equivalent to 2 days a week
Salary: £21,000pa (pro rata)

Closing date 27th May at midnight.
Bristol Energy Network (BEN) is a community interest company with a vision of ‘a city where clean, green, affordable energy is delivered to the community by the community’. We are involved in many areas of community energy from renewable generation projects, local retrofit-skills development, community engagement for council projects, and fuel poverty work.
Our work is designed to help the citizens of Bristol move towards the shared city goal of Net Zero by 2030, without leaving any community behind. Whilst working towards Net Zero we aim to engage with seldom heard communities by demonstrating the co-benefits of carbon reducing projects.
We are an umbrella organisation with a small staff team led by a board of directors. We represent the members of our network which comprise many different actors from individuals, to community organisations who do not have a focus on energy, through to innovative CICs whose expertise lie in innovative technology.
We are currently looking for a support officer to help ensure the network runs smoothly and external communications are well managed. It is not essential that applicants have experience of working in the community energy or sustainability sector. So, if you pride yourself on being organised, a great communicator, and passionate about supporting communities to help themselves – this could be the job for you!
We particularly welcome applications from Black, Asian and Minoritised communities, and disabled individuals. Any applicants from Minoritised groups which meet the essential job requirements will be invited to interview. Appointment will always, however, be made on merit and judged against the job description and person specification.
