Description

Over the past decade, the Town of Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, has emerged as an international leader in sustainability and energy transition planning and programming. Winner of a GLOBE award in 2018 as well as the national Smart Cities Challenge in 2019, the community’s Energize Bridgewater program has been recognized for its approach to innovation in a municipal setting. Through this program, the town is moving toward a complete transition to a clean, energy efficient economy within 30 years, while simultaneously lifting its residents out of energy poverty, a condition that affects nearly 40% of the population.

Energize Bridgewater creates community development programs at the intersection of poverty reduction and energy management with the goal of making Bridgewater a green and self-supported economy. The Energize Bridgewater plan involves making homes more energy efficient, helping community members own and sell renewable energy; setting up an energy management information system to help home owners and businesses plan energy upgrades; making public and active transportation more accessible; setting up a local energy investment program; and improving connections to community services for community members experiencing energy poverty.

Reporting to the Energize Bridgewater Project Manager, the Energize Bridgewater Project Administrator Intern will assist with project management duties. Working within a multi-disciplinary team, the Project Administrator will oversee and perform administrative functions, contribute actively to community engagement activities, and report on project progress. Their primary responsibility is to ensure that project deliverables and outcomes are achieved on time and that project resources and responsibilities are adequately allocated among the project team and external consultants and partners to achieve these objectives. To foster innovation and support program design, prototyping, and evaluation efforts, the Project Administrator will participate in an agile and lean project management and continuous improvement environment.
