    The Role

    SELCE are now recruiting for 10 ‘Sustainable Futures Champions’ to become part of a team who will work together to transform Lewisham, creating greener homes for a cleaner London.

    This role would suit anyone who has 2 – 3 hours a week to spare and is passionate about the environment. Maybe you are a mother, a student, work part-time, or perhaps you are retired: All are welcome to join us!

    Sustainable Futures Champions will attend a minimum of three 2-hour training sessions, once a week, to become an SF Champion. After three sessions, you will be qualified to begin work on the pilot, promoting our new services. This will begin w/b June 10th. The subsequent 4 weeks will offer volunteer support sessions, with continued supplementary learning if you wish to carry on developing your skills.

    Following the 3 initial training sessions, if you feel comfortable, you will begin to support us to promote and roll out the pilot of our new service which aims to reduce carbon emissions and conserve energy in homes in Lewisham. This period of support with our service can be longer if you are comfortable, have the capacity and wish to continue.

    Voluntary champions will be able to commit up to 3 hours per week and will receive a 75% discount on one of our initial service offers upon completion to help you transform your home into a low-carbon dream.

    SELCE’s Sustainable Futures Champions will gain certification as Carbon Literate (see the Carbon Literacy Project) and as a Sustainable Futures Advisor for SELCE.

    Let’s unite to transform Lewisham together!

    As a voluntary champion, SELCE will reimburse all travel costs associated incurred within 9-week period.
