Are you looking for a job where you can make a real difference to the community and the planet?
We have a very exciting opportunity for a highly motivated self-employed person to join our team, but the catch is that you must start as a volunteer and secure funding for your own post. The post is then open for you to develop as you wish in accordance with our Aims and at the approval of the Board of Directors, hours are negotiable.
We have several projects underway for which we’d expect some delivery support, these include communicating climate action to families and schools, developing a ground-breaking innovative passivhaus housing scheme, securing funding for fuel poverty projects, responding to relevant consultations and supporting several multi-million pound renewable energy projects in the early development stage.

South Dartmoor Community Energy is a non-profit community energy organisation, we’re run by a team of voluntary directors and our aims are to reduce fuel poverty and tackle the Climate Emergency through developing community-led renewable energy generation schemes that provide a direct benefit to the local community. We work in the South Hams in Devon, primarily around the Ivybridge area. We’re an active member of a network of community energy groups in Devon and work closely with local authorities.
Please note: SDCE is not an employer, this is not a salaried post, you will be expected to volunteer until further funding is secured. SDCE is in a position to take huge steps forward and increase our capacity with the right person on the team. We have been working in this way for 4 years and always sustained between 3 and 7 part time project roles.
