About the organisation

Repowering London

Repowering London is a not-for-profit organisation that specialises in facilitating the co-production of community-owned renewable energy projects. Repowering projects are funded through community shares and bonds, which in turn help create Community Benefit Funds. We work closely with professional installers, and local community groups. The design, execution and maintenance of each solar project includes internship opportunities for young people in finance, IT, technology, legal and marketing activities.

Repowering create resilient, empowered communities across London with greater control and ownership of their energy generation and usage.

We need specialist help to update and refresh our corporate communications (portfolio, case studies, website, social media) – increasing our reach, strengthening our story, and helping scale our impact.

We need someone with the ideas and skills to bring Repowering’s work to life in print and online materials – to attract more followers, investors, partners, and funders. You will quickly interpret what Repowering are about – and use your cutting-edge skills and ideas to make us stand out.
