ABOUT THE ORGANISATION
Sustain & Enable is a start-up Community-based Environmental Social Enterprise – a business set up with a charitable purpose to design and deliver environmentally sustainable projects, starting with Healthier, Sustainable Housing; Green Building; Low Carbon; and Zero Waste initiatives. After several years of investigation and pilot projects, we are now building a diverse team of environmentally-conscious people passionate about making a difference in the community.
New Zealand homes are unacceptably cold, damp, mouldy, and inefficient, leading to unhealthy living conditions and various health issues including Rheumatic fever, bronchitis, bronchiolitis, pneumonia, respiratory illness, asthma, skin conditions, etc. With recent changes in New Zealand legislation, home assessors are in high demand to enable people to live in warm, dry homes every winter. There is also an increasing demand for green buildings, and for Zero Waste and Low Carbon initiatives.
This role is responsible for working with landlords to support them to make changes to make a home healthier for the tenants to live in, and create benefits for the landlords. The successful candidate will take a positive, strengths based approach to working with owners, property managers, and tenants to create a healthier space and benefits for everyone and refer landlords onto free and discounted goods and services, grants and subsidies, etc.
