Job description

Deputy Director Sustainability First


Sustainability First is a widely respected charity and think tank focused on improving environmental, social and economic wellbeing in essential services.  We punch well above our weight and shape agendas and embed sustainability in practical decision making.  Our innovative and inspiring work builds links with policy makers, regulators and companies and those currently underrepresented in decision making in public utilities.


We are expanding and at this time are seeking to recruit two roles: a new Director to lead the organisation in the next exciting stage of our development when our current Director leaves at the end of April 2022; and, to build our capacity, a new post of Deputy Director


We are looking for a Deputy Director who is a sound project and operational manager. The candidate will need to have proven fundraising experience, be keen to make a real difference for a sustainable future and comfortable operating in a consultancy environment.


The salary for the Deputy Director role (which is initially for a one year contract) is in the range of £40,000-50,000, or more for an exceptional candidate.  We are open to suggestions for part-time and flexible working.   We currently envisage that the role will largely be home based, with some working and external meetings mainly in London.


Please visit Sustainability First's website, for a copy of the Job Description and details of how to apply.  Deadline for applications is 12 noon on 4th January 2022.  


Interviews for the Deputy Director will take place in central London on 28th January 2022.
