A ‘GREEN’ graduate is being offered the chance to help join Redditch Borough Council’s fight against climate change.
The council has created a paid internship which will run for 51 weeks and help with community based work in areas such as energy efficiency, renewable energy, retrofitting, drought, flooding, the green economy, access to healthy local food and sustainable new development.
The successful applicant will work under the council’s climate change manager for 30 hours a week shared between Bromsgrove District and Redditch Borough Councils and would need to be available to start in September or October.
The council will also sponsor them to take the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment (IEMA) Associate Exam towards the end of the internship.
Coun Debbie Taylor, responsible for local environment and health on the borough council, said: “This internship is an exciting opportunity for a graduate to gain first hand experience in climate change work which covers everything from recycling and renewable energy to creating local jobs and improving public health.
“We all know how tough the economic conditions are at the moment and along with the five apprenticeships we now offer this is another small way in which Redditch Borough Council is helping - and in return the intern will help make Redditch a cleaner, greener place to live.”
Those interested in the role must be a recent graduate with a degree or equivalent in a relevant subject area and possess knowledge and understanding of an interest in sustainable development and current environmental issues.
The closing date for applications is Monday, August 20 and for more information or to apply visit www.wmjobs.co.uk and select Redditch or call the council’s recruitment line on (01527) 534117. CVs will only be accepted with a completed application form.
Anyone who would like to discuss the internship should contact Ceridwen John, Climate Change Manager, on 01527 64252 ext 3046.
