Volunteer as a Green Impact auditor for the Heritage Lottery Fund

Audit teams from across the Heritage Lottery Fund for Green Impact!

14th June 2022: Join our online training session and then carry out online environmental audits of Heritage Lottery Fund staff teams across the UK.

What is Green Impact?

Green Impact is a United Nations award-winning programme designed to support environmentally and socially sustainable practice within organisations.

This can mean anything from communicating recycling systems, to committing to go Fairtrade; from supporting team health and well-being campaigns, to working towards carbon-neutrality! The model has been developed over ten years. Based on proven behaviour change models, its flexible approach means it can be tailored to meet each organisation’s unique needs.

By auditing Heritage Lottery Fund teams, you will help verify if they have carried out set actions to achieve their working towards, bronze, silver or gold award target.

What’s involved?

The training and audit day will be held online 10am - 6pm (at the latest) on Tuesday 14th June 2022. Breaks and self-study time will be built in. To apply, you must be a current student at a university. No previous experience is necessary. You will need to be available for the whole day, with access to your own computer.

As a Green Impact auditor, you will be fully trained by SOS-UK in an online IEMA-approved training session, for which you will receive an IEMA certificate upon completion of the audits.

Following the training, you will spend some time reviewing the Green Impact toolkit submissions of staff at the Heritage Lottery Fund and preparing questions to ask. You will then meet with the staff online, where you can ask questions and make final decisions on your audit. It's a great opportunity to view real-world implementation of sustainability in the workplace, as well as build new skills in communications, analysis and team-work.

You will receive a digital badge from SOS-UK on completion of the auditing to showcase the skills you have utilised, which you can then share on LinkedIn!
