Job role - Climate Action Leeds Coordinator

This is an exciting opportunity to lead VAL’s coordination of Climate Action Leeds (CAL). Climate Action Leeds is an ambitious five-year programme funded by The National Lottery Climate Action Fund which, across its six main delivery partners, provides a platform for people, organisations and communities to come together to take action on climate change, in Leeds and beyond.

If you are energised by helping to shape a Leeds which is zero carbon, nature friendly and socially just by the 2030s and are a skilled project manager then this is the job for you.

About the role At Voluntary Action Leeds we recruit Project Coordinators to a generic job description meaning staff are able to pick up and lead various funded projects across the organisation.

This requires team members who are flexible, adaptable and have a range of transferable skills. Staff members can be moved around the organisation to deliver relevant pieces of work that maximise their skills, knowledge, and experience, and contribute towards our organisational aims.

The primary functions of this post include:

  • providing leadership for VAL’s activities in the Climate Action Leeds (CAL) programme.

  • working with the other CAL partners to ensure programme aims and objectives are achieved.

  • acting as the primary contact point/liaison with the programme funder (National Lottery) and ensuring monitoring returns are completed on time.

  • reporting on the progress of the programme both internally and externally.

  • being part of national discussions with other similar programmes funded by the Lottery.

  • management of the programme’s Learning and Evaluation Partner.
