Project Co-Ordinator

Codema is excited to announce that we are recruiting for a dynamic, enthusiastic and proactive Project Co-ordinator who will primarily manage and drive the growth of the Sustainable Energy Communities (SEC) programme in the Dublin and Mid-East region.

This role is a great opportunity to be at the heart of empowering energy communities across the region and enabling these communities to lead the energy transition from the bottom-up. While this role will focus largely on the Sustainable Energy Communities programme, you will also have the opportunity to contribute to and coordinate other exciting projects within Codema.

The SEC initiative is a funding and support programme, which helps communities to work together to become energy-smart and more sustainable. There are now over 500 SECs up and running in Ireland, with over a quarter of these based in the Dublin and Mid-East region. The programme is run nationally by the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) and Codema currently provides dedicated County mentor services to Dublin City, Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown, Fingal, South Dublin, Kildare, Meath and Wicklow.

Codema has been successfully flying the flag for sustainable, low-carbon energy and climate mitigation in Dublin for over 20 years, and we believe our success is attributed to the dedication of our team who are driven by knowing that what they do has a positive impact on our environment and our future. We are proud of what we have achieved in the past and even more excited about the future and the next chapter for Codema. We are looking for someone who shares our passion and values to expand our team and join us on our success story.

What you will do

  • Everyday coordination of the team of 11 mentors to deliver the SEC programme in the Dublin and Mid-East Region
  • Disseminating and clearly communicating information between the various stakeholders (internal project team, Codema management team, SEAI, mentors & SECs) in a timely and proactive manner

  • Conducting bi-annual reviews with County mentors to ensure progress and tasks are carried out in line with all SEAI programme requirements
