About The Role

Falmouth Exeter Plus is the service delivery partner of Falmouth University and the University of Exeter. We deliver shared services and facilities for both partners in Cornwall underpinned by close collaboration with Students Union, the combined students' union for Falmouth and UoE, to ensure that the interests of students and staff are at the heart of everything we do.

Both institutions are expanding their teaching and research operations in Cornwall at a pace. It is, therefore, a fast-moving environment where agility and a positive approach to change and enhancement are critical, our purpose or mission is 'to deliver world-class shared professional services to help its university partners to achieve their global ambitions.'

FX Plus has made a very strong commitment to carbon management and has ambitious targets for achieving net zero emissions; our two University Partners have also declared a climate emergency to support those calling for urgent action and to show commitment to leading the change required.

To allow us to achieve our ambitions in this area we are looking to recruit an Energy Manager to work within our Estates team across our Penryn and Falmouth Campuses. The role will lead on efficiency improvements and carbon management by evaluating energy and utility usage and implementing policies, changes and projects to achieve carbon reduction targets.

This role will involve coordinating all aspects of energy and utility management, with a view to scope 1 and 2 carbon reduction. This will be achieved through the use of renewable and sustainable energy resources and by developing and delivering the carbon reduction programme and associated projects.

The successful candidate will proactively monitor monthly utility bills (gas, water and electricity), take responsibility for the financial management and projections of utility costs and lead the utility procurement and supplier review process, including liaising with the FX Plus energy broker to agree levels of risk in forward purchasing of energy. This post will be the professional lead for FX Plus on energy management, providing advisory and management services. You will be supported by a highly-skilled estates team, with the successful candidate having the autonomy to develop the area to ensure the right outcomes are achieved.
