Job Purposed: The Sustainability Advisor will be the key point of contact for sustainability issues on our construction sites and will work with the Head of Sustainability to deliver the Berkeley Group corporate sustainability strategy at a divisional level. Berkeley East Thames currently has 3 live phases of development at Kidbrooke Village, 2 at Royal Arsenal Riverside and a new regeneration project starting at Plumstead West Thamesmead in partnership with Peabody.
The role will be varied, focusing not only on environmental issues, but also the social and economic impacts of the project's activities. The Sustainability Advisor will be expected to support the project team in complying with environmental regulations and Berkeley's environmental standards, as well as meeting the Berkeley Group's Sustainability Strategy, which is due to be launched shortly. The Strategy will include our recently launched science based carbon reduction targets, as well as other sustainability themes relevant to housing developments.
A typical working week may include: walking around the construction sites to check that operations are carried out in line with environmental best practice; collating electricity meter readings and fuel tickets for company reporting; working with the project team to identify and implement innovations to reduce waste generation; working with the project team to apply Berkeley's framework for social sustainability; running a training session to increase awareness of sustainability issues within the build team. The size and multi-phase nature of Berkeley East Thames projects mean that there will be opportunity for the Sustainability Advisor to get involved in strategic sustainability initiatives as well as the day to day environmental issues associated with construction.
Please note our standard working hours are 8am until 5:30pm Monday to Friday.
