About us
At Evergreen Energy we use smart technology to help our customers dramatically cut their carbon emissions and reduce their energy bills! We believe that making our homes more energy-efficient, and using renewable technology to heat and power them, will play a big part in achieving a sustainable future. We are looking for an experienced Head of Quality, Risk & Governance as we embark on our next stage of growth.
We believe a great quality manager is thorough and observant with an eye for detail.
The role:
You must fully understand the requirements for the product or service and have a sense of responsibility towards our potential and existing users and customers as well as the competition. The goal is to help preserve our reputation by ensuring that our products and services are capable to drive sustainable growth.
The role will also be responsible to advise the business on various types of risks (business, financial, legal and security.) You will identify potential threats and create plans to prevent and mitigate problems, working with the wider team. In this role, you should be highly perceptive and methodical. You should also have the ability to communicate effectively and present your plans in a convincing way. If you have experience in risk assessment and financial analysis, we'd like to meet you.
Ultimately, you will ensure that our company secures its reputation by controlling risk.
Our vision of a great candidate is someone who is passionate about the environment and the opportunity to do things differently; they'll love working within an open, supportive team and in this role will spend most of their time working collaboratively with the wider Evergreen team.
