Overview of Opportunity

Peak Earth is a small consultancy consisting of experts in sustainability and net-zero carbon providing financial models and commercial advice for low-carbon energy infrastructure projects.

Sustainability will be a huge industry over the next three decades. This opportunity will provide you the chance to enter a small entrepreneurial team of talented people – with less structure and more autonomy available in comparison to a bigger firm, providing great insight and experience into what it takes to run a small company. The role will be based at C4DI (an incubator in Hull city centre that helps tech companies grow, and traditional businesses innovate), although you do not need to be there every day – hybrid home working is fine, depending on capability etc.

Peak Earth is currently in a transitional period, reshuffling its product offering and expanding into 3 new areas: developing edible landscapes using regenerative (sustainable) farming techniques; building sustainable homes centred around people; helping companies to develop their commercial propositions for their sustainability products.
