Green Impact Auditor Opportunities 

Green Impact - Tuesday 9th and/or Wednesday 10th May 2017

  • Want to find out more about environmental issues?
  • Want to gain the skills and knowledge associated with auditing?
  • Want to make a positive impact?
  • Want to improve your CV and gain valuable employability skills?
  • Want to do a course that is IEMA[1] approved?
  • Want to have a fun day learning practical skills?

Green Impact is an environmental accreditation programme with an awards element, designed to encourage, support and celebrate departments in making environmental improvements. Over the last few months teams have been working through their workbooks implementing practical actions, such as only using recycled copier paper, or putting awareness stickers next to light switches.

Depending on the number of environmental actions departments complete, they can achieve either: a working towards accreditation, Bronze, Silver or Gold. All departments participating in Green Impact will need an audit to verify their level of achievement… and this is where you come in!

 Auditing

We are looking for volunteer auditors to visit the departments and conduct audits on 9th and 10th May. Each volunteer auditor will be fully trained on the criteria and what they need to audit through a half-day of training. In pairs auditors will then complete one or more audits. An audit should take between one and two hours to complete depending on the size of the department.
