We are hiring!

Future of London is looking for a researcher to work on a new project on energy efficiency in London’s private rented sector.

This short-term post will support our Head of Policy in carrying out research on how to engage London’s private landlords in energy efficiency, which will culminate in a two-part report outlining the challenges of engagement, main drivers for acting now, and case studies of innovative approaches to tackling these challenges.

Key tasks will include:

  • Literature review of energy efficiency situation across the private rented sector
  • Review of existing local and central government standards and guidelines
  • Review of funding and regulatory tools (public, industry, private) past and present
  • Research into case studies from London, UK and further afield where appropriate

We are looking for someone to execute a number of desk-based research tasks that will contribute to the research report. The postholder will investigate and write up a number of aspects related to energy efficiency in the private rented sector: initiatives to date, successes, shortcomings, funding and regulatory tools, comparisons to other cities and related work. This work will contribute strongly to part one of the report. The postholder will also assist with research into innovative approaches to tackling these challenges. We will share the project brief with the successful candidate.

This is a temporary post, and will require approximately 17-20 days of work starting in late July.

Please see our job announcement for further details, including how to apply.

The closing date for applications is July 18th. No calls please.

Applications are also invited for a second post of Programme Coordinator – Leaders Programmes, supporting the delivery of our career-development programmes. Further details can be found on our vacancies page.
