We’re hiring! Can you help us deliver a transport decarbonisation research paper?

The IWA is looking for a proactive organisation or consultant to help deliver a short research paper focusing on ‘Decarbonising Transport’.

The short research paper will form part of the evidence base for the IWA ‘Re-energising Wales’ project, a 3 year project (April 2016-April 2019) that will outline a plan to enable Wales to meet its projected energy demands entirely from renewable sources by 2035.

This short paper will support existing work by identifying key actions needed in Wales to move to low carbon transport, as well as by considering modal shifts. The aim of the paper is to identify key interventions in Wales that will reduce energy demand for transport, and ensure that Wales works towards the potential to meet its remaining projected energy demands for transport entirely from renewable sources by 2035.

We’re looking for someone with a track record in undertaking qualitative and quantitative research, with the ability to deliver and communicate key findings and recommendations to a wide range of key stakeholders in Wales. An understanding of the energy and transport sectors would be an advantage.

The IWA is a high-performing, small and flexible team. The postholder is expected to be a proactive, dynamic self-starter with solid judgement and the ability to operate independently with high levels of autonomy and engage effectively with external partners and stakeholders, including at a senior level.

The deadline for this opportunity is 5pm Wednesday 14th February 2018. We envisage notifying applicants if they have an interview ASAP, with the intention to hold interviews on Friday 16th February.
