Would you like to be part of solving one of the biggest environmental challenges of our generation? If so, now is the time for you to join our expanding team at Cenex.
At Cenex, we understand that when you work on the cutting edge you often have to apply skills and knowledge gained in other fields. So we welcome applications from people with transferable skills who may have little direct experience in the zero-emission transport industry but who demonstrate a genuine interest in the topic and the vital role it can play to decarbonise our economy.

About the Role
We are recruiting a Team Leader for the Technical Innovation team working on zero emission transport and infrastructure. The successful candidate will play a crucial role leading a small multi-disciplinary team, growing our activities delivering R&D and technical consultancy services. As well as leading and growing our team of technical and project experts, the candidate will manage a portfolio of consultancy and research projects in the space of zero-emission transport, energy systems and infrastructure, including electric vehicles and hydrogen fuel cell technologies. At Cenex, we lead by example, so you should expect approximately 20% of the role to be on team management activity and 80% on technical projects and delivery.
This role will be responsible principally for:-
We are looking for highly motivated individuals with existing experience in energy and/or transport, or with excellent transferable technical experience who demonstrate a genuine interest and can apply critical thinking to a new subject area. You will need to possess the following attributes:
We provide an exciting and rewarding place for you to work, giving you the opportunity to make a real difference in the world by working with an exceptional team of talented, dedicated and supportive individuals who are committed to reducing the environmental impact of transport. So, for a professional looking at the next stage of their career, this could be an exciting new role for you at Cenex.
In addition to a competitive salary we offer significant benefits, including:-
Cenex is a well-established, highly influential research and consultancy organisation working to accelerate the transition to Net Zero for the transport and energy sectors, but there are a few things which set us apart:-
Independent: We are not owned by anyone, and we don’t have investors. As a result, we have the freedom to be truly technology neutral. This means that if our research shows that a technology won’t work for a given application then we will share this clearly, openly and without compromise.
Not-for-Profit: We are a truly value driven organisation, made up of similarly driven individuals. We exist purely to accelerate the decarbonisation of transport across the world. As a result, our staff are always empowered to make the right decisions, rather than the ones which give the greatest financial return.
Technical Experts: We start by hiring great people, and then we provide an environment where they can keep on growing and developing. We use our research to develop a strong evidence base and understanding around a wide range of technologies which will help us decarbonise transport. We work with industry and end users to trial new technologies, assess business cases, collect real-world data and accelerate the “market readiness” of these technologies. We then use the learnings from our research, along with our know-how and analytics tools, to assist public and private sector organisations to identify the right technologies for the needs and values of our customers, and to identify the impact these technologies will have on their businesses.
