Staff Sustainability Architects

If you want to be part of driving sustainable change at the University then you should be a Staff Sustainability Architect. Staff in any role at the University can join our network of architects. You’ll join a network of colleagues promoting sustainability across every School and Service. Architects are given the guidance, support and the tools they need to embed sustainability objectives into their roles and bring about real sustainable change in their team or department.

What it means to be a Sustainability Architect

Becoming a Staff Sustainability Architect means committing a proportion of your time, with support from your manager, to driving sustainability. The role is flexible and we will work with you to shape your objectives around what will make a real difference in your department. This could be anything from embedding sustainability in the curriculum or reducing single-use plastic to working in the community or reducing environmental impacts.

As an Architect, you will join a great network of colleagues, all working to create a more sustainable University. We have regular events and use Microsoft Teams to provide training and resources as well as allowing everyone to share knowledge and collaborate on a diverse range of projects.
