Town Planner - Contract role in UK
We are a start-up business with significant backing from well-known parents. We sell to well known Charge Point Operators (many state backed utilities) and spend much of our time encouraging Local Authorities (at County, Borough and Unitary levels) to deploy the right balance of EV charging infrastructure that their residents need.
As the team is only just forming, your ability to roll your sleeves up and dive in to help others outside of your main responsibilities will be welcomed. Having experience of the EV ecosystem and the EV charging market in particular is highly advantageous. The business will start off being based in Hammersmith, and may over time move westwards out of the city.
Our culture, brand and identity are currently being defined (we are that young!) but we want to build a business that attracts and retains the best talent, who are passionate about making a difference to the climate by rapidly increasing the uptake of EV's by ensuring the correct infrastructure exists for everyone to be able to charge; reliably, easily, conveniently and affordably.
