Work With Us

Work with us

As The Carbon Literacy Project scales up, we expect paid positions to become available more often and we will advertise them on this page.

The Carbon Literacy Project is committed to promoting a diverse and inclusive community – 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. We particularly encourage applications from individuals who are:

  • Black, Asian, or an ethnic minority in the UK
  • from working-class backgrounds
  • have a disability

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


We are taking action against climate change, and in doing so, we are taking very direct responsibility for our economy, our planet, and our way of life. We, therefore, ask that our volunteers and employees be registered to vote.

Internal Job Opportunities

Local Authorities Coordinator

Salary: Full time equivalent salary (dependent on experience) : £21,500- £28,000

Type: We welcome applications from candidates seeking either full-time or part-time work. (Minimum 2 full working days per week; 1 day = 7.5 hours). This is a freelance role, and as such, working hours are flexible.

Based: Our office is based in Manchester, and we offer the choice of office, hybrid or completely remote working.

Closing date for applications: 27th May 2022.

With a third of the UK’s carbon emissions directly influenced by Local Authority practice, policy or partnerships, Local Authorities have an essential role to play in the UK’s decarbonisation.

To fulfil this role, we believe that every UK Local Authority must first become Carbon Literate. That’s why we co-created the Carbon Literacy Toolkit for Local Authorities.

The Local Authorities Coordinator will help councils to reach their decarbonisation goals by engaging their staff in practical climate action.
