TRESOC develops community-owned renewable energy in Devon and our aim is to empower the local community to develop and control its own renewable energy supplies.

We are an award-winning and established sustainable energy company with 550 member shareholders and have a portfolio of renewable energy installations stretching from Plymouth to Exeter.

We are looking for a socially minded and eco-friendly Legal Director/ Company Secretary to join our management team.

The responsibilities of the role include:

  • Responsibility for TRESOC’s legal operations
  • Managing existing legal contracts
  • Overseeing the development of new contracts
  • Involvement in the legal content of share issues

The role will be rewarding, but not paid, so the ideal candidate will be self-motivated and flexible. The board meets once a month on a Tuesday evening from 7-9pm, which is currently being carried out on Zoom.

Applicants should have a background in UK law; however, a specific knowledge of renewable energy law is not essential.

Current projects, that are all community owned, include:

  • A mini solar grid at Clay Park
  • A 100kW hydro power plant at Staverton Leat
  • 500kW of roof mounted solar power

In 2015, we were awarded Regen’s ‘South West Green Energy Award for the ‘Best Community Initiative’ for the Shine Project. Working with South Devon Rural Housing Association we installed Solar PV on 42 properties, which means cheaper fuel bills and greater energy independence for residents.
In 2018 our successful primary education programme, the Renewable Energy Experiential Learning (REEL), was nominated for Regen’s ‘Best South West Community Initiative’.
