The University of Southampton’s vision for 2030 is that sustainability will be a part of everything it does, encompassing individual behaviours, how we work together, and how we make decisions for the future. This is key to achieving our mission of changing the world for the better and delivering on the University Strategy.

You will work closely with the University’s Estates & Facilities and will establish reproducible analytic pipelines/processes using existing sustainability related data flows and embedding appropriate protocols and processes in the University’s EMS to ensure future delivery on an ongoing basis. The work will also include robust data gap reviews, high quality data analysis and development of a sustainability data dashboard.

The role will also include engagement with stakeholders to define future iterations and updates to the EMS system. This is your chance to help develop a 22nd Century data architecture to propel the University towards a sustainable future.
