In addition, you'll have managed numerous international research programmes across continents on climate finance.

- You will have strong stakeholder engagement, with the ability to network, map and engage with a wide range of stakeholders, from senior finance to NGOs as part of the research process, navigating and building global networks among partner institutions and stakeholders.

- You'll have programme management skills, combining research development with other activities such as designing and convening webinars and stakeholders workshops that support the programme's development and positioning and research agenda, and coordinating the work of others in the team that are contributing research.

- Finally, you'll have the ability and interest to manage the delivery of other programmes and projects that are created as a result of action-orientated nature of our research and engagement.

You may have worked in a think tank or similar research based organisation and you'll have an entrepreneurial personality and a strong work ethic. This is an extremely exciting opportunity for you to join this forward thinking, dynamic Team of professionals and one where you can utilise your research, analytical and report writing skills and technical skills within climate finance.
