Exeter Community Energy (ECOE) is continuing to evolve – and we need help adapting to the challenges we face. We therefore have exciting opportunities for you to join us in helping the local community and global environment. Interested? If so, read on for details:

Finance director

ECOE’s Finance Director Vicky Vallis is stepping down because the role with us raised her profile in her day job. Her employers have promoted her to a more senior and time-consuming role. Vicky therefore now has less time to balance her main job and her ECOE commitment. So we are looking for a new Finance Director to join our Board. The Finance Director will help explore fundraising options and determine the prospects of new projects, as well as meet our regulatory commitments.

Do you know anyone with the skills and available time to fill this important role? Would you like further information about role responsibilities? Please contact Tara Bowers, chair in the first instance on tara@ecoe.org.uk or on 07731 540215. The role bests suit someone who has a strong interest in helping the environment and/or local community and would therefore be motivated to spend their spare time on this. We are ideally looking for people able to commit a significant amount of time, upwards of ten hours per month, but welcome all enquiries. Directors must be ECOE shareholders, which will require a minimum £50 investment. This is your chance to do something real to address the climate emergency!

Other volunteers

We welcome anyone with the interest and passion to help ECOE – volunteers don’t need to invest. We’d be especially interested if you can help with events, developing new projects, making funding applications and/or bringing in commercial sponsorship. Or perhaps you know other people who could, or email or internet discussion groups of local people who would consider something like this? All enquiries are welcome – contact Tara using the details above!
