Who are we?
The Carbon Capture and Storage Association (CCSA) is the trade association representing organisations developing Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage (CCUS) projects to reduce CO2 emissions and support the transition to a zero-carbon economy. We work with members, governments and other organisations to ensure CCUS is developed and deployed at the pace and scale necessary to meet net-zero goals and deliver sustainable growth across regions and nations.
The CCSA also coordinates the Zero Emissions Technology and Innovation Platform (ZEP) under the European Commission Horizon 2020 programme, and leads the consortium that supports the Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET-Plan) group with responsibility for CCS and CCU.
The CCSA is seeking a highly motivated Policy Officer to support the policy, communications, and engagement activities of the Association at this very exciting time in the development of the carbon capture and storage industry.
The Policy Officer will play a critical role in meeting the needs of the CCSA members by developing CCSA reports, briefing notes, consultation responses and coordinating and managing the active and influential CCSA Technical Working Group. The individual should be comfortable building a network of CCUS professionals and representing the interests of the association at networking events.
The Policy Officer will also support the CCSA’s communication and engagement activities by developing promotional materials and newsletters, developing content for the CCSA event programme including webinars and the CCSA annual conference and assisting in the delivery of the stakeholder engagement programme.
The Policy Officer will be comfortable working to tight deadlines and able to work effectively with a wide range of stakeholders. The ideal candidate will have prior experience of policy or technical activities within the energy or environmental sectors and a keen interest in addressing climate change.
