Anonymised Application – in keeping with Camden’s commitment to inclusion the recruitment to this role is anonymised and supports the objective of reducing the impact of unconscious bias.
In Camden we are committed to working together to make our borough the best place to live, work, study and visit. Partnership with our communities is central to the way we work, so that everyone can access opportunities and nobody gets left behind. Camden Council has committed to the World Health Organization air quality standards and realising citizens’ vision for a borough in which ‘no one experiences poor health because of the air they breathe in Camden’.
As the London Wood Burning Project Lead you will support the Air Quality Programme Manager by managing the delivery of the London Wood Burning Project, which is at the forefront of our collective work to protect Londoners’ health from air pollution from domestic heating.
The London Wood Burning Project is our flagship project to reduce the impact of domestic heating on air quality and public health, and is being delivered by Camden and Islington with 13 other local authority partners. The Project will improve our understanding of the health impacts associated with domestic heating – which is an increasingly dominant source of urban air pollution – and will build public knowledge through the delivery of a pan-London awareness raising campaign.
In this exciting new role you will lead the development of the campaign strategy and creative design, media buying, and delivery of the campaign during winter 2023/24. You will coordinate the involvement of all 15 participating authorities, service providers, and external partners to ensure the Project achieves maximum impact.
As London Wood Burning Project Lead you will have a unique opportunity to lead a significant awareness raising campaign and will be able to shape how London authorities collectively tackle air pollution from domestic heating.
Aside from leading the London Wood Burning Project you will spend one day per week supporting Camden’s wider air quality work, helping to implement our new Clean Air Action Plan 2023-26 (CAAP). This will include managing our own in-house ‘Clean Air for Camden’ behaviour change campaign and other innovative projects that we bring forward under the CAAP.
You will have excellent project management skills and experience in managing and delivering behaviour change or engagement projects relating to air quality, sustainability, public health, or another relevant subject.
You will hold a professional qualification or equivalent experience with a good understanding of air quality and/or public health.
You will be a great communicator, able to engage with a variety of audiences, and will have the confidence to build productive relationships with internal and external stakeholders.
In this role you will need to have attention to detail and excellent organisational skills to manage conflicting priorities and the varied nature of the role.
