We are looking for a motivated and dynamic candidate to join PECT and deliver our innovative new project, Peterborough Accelerating Net Zero (PANZ).

Local low carbon solutions are essential to achieve net zero, and cities can lead the way for that change. Many have plans to achieve Net Zero, but need the skills, resources, and funding mechanisms to implement them.

PANZ aims to develop practical tools and approaches to enable cities to identify, coordinate and facilitate the delivery of a range of low carbon measures at speed and to scale, starting with Peterborough.

The project is being delivered in partnership with Peterborough City Council, Energy Systems Catapult, Nordic Energy, EdenSeven, Cambridgeshire County Council and PECT.

Our vision is for sustainable places where the natural environment is healthy, communities are involved in their area, health and well-being is improved for all and resource use is responsible and does not compromise the needs of others, now and into the future.

PECT is committed to high staff satisfaction and offers a range of benefits including hybrid and flexible working hours, competitive pay, 25 days annual leave and opportunities for career development.
