Could you join the Footprint Team?

The Footprint Trust is a small, but very effective local registered charity. Chances are you have heard of them, possibly because they have assisted a family member, friend or neighbour to cut their utility bill, or obtained free insulation for their home.

The Trust’s work has expanded dramatically over the past two years, due to increased levels of hardship due to Covid job-losses, followed by exorbitant energy price increases.

To cope with the massive increase in its work the Trust is looking for a projects manager to oversee and report on the all the work the charity does. This role will involve liaising with funders and the board of the Trust. They will also be training in giving energy guidance to the growing number of people who are contacting the charity for help and information on utility worries.
