This role will help to set the agenda for the future of the Liverpool City Region (LCR), working within the policy and strategic commissioning teams but influencing and liaising across the Combined Authority (CA). This is an exciting time to join us as we develop our approach to delivering the Metro Mayor’s commitment to net zero carbon by 2040.

In order to successfully deliver this role, you will be required to develop and maintain a broad working knowledge of existing and emerging issues in these environmental themes.
We are seeking a candidate who can work on their own initiative with a high level of responsibility and confidentiality along with a flexibility of approach to meet the needs of this rapidly changing area of work. The successful applicant will be expected to liaise with internal and external groups and will need to show an ability to communicate effectively both verbally and in writing.
This is an exciting time of change, with a rapidly evolving national and local policy. This role presents an opportunity to shape the Combined Authority’s approach to the climate and ecological emergency, helping to realise our goal of achieving net zero carbon by 2040.
