Work with us

As The Carbon Literacy Project continues to scale up, we expect paid positions to become available more frequently and they will be advertised on this page.

The Carbon Literacy Project is committed to promoting a diverse and inclusive community. This is a place where we can all be ourselves and succeed on merit. We offer a range of flexible working arrangements to support individuals from different backgrounds and particularly encourage applications from individuals who are:

  • Black, Asian, or belong to an ethnic minority group in the UK
  • from working-class backgrounds
  • living with a disability

… all of whom are currently under-represented within The Carbon Literacy Project and the wider environmental sector.


We are taking direct responsibility for our economy, our planet and our way of life in order to act against climate change. Therefore, we ask that our volunteers and employees be registered to vote – here’s why.
