Climate Analytics brings cutting edge science and policy analysis to bear on one of the most pressing global problems of our time: human-induced climate change. As the urgency of this problem has grown, so have we, and our organization now has four offices, in Berlin, Lomé, New York and Perth, and over 100 people with wide-ranging expertise.
We are motivated by the desire to empower the most vulnerable – Small Island Developing States and Least Developed Countries – to use the best science and analysis available in the international climate negotiations, as well as developing policies and institutional capacity to adapt to climate change. We undertake extensive research on the 1.5°C temperature limit in the Paris Agreement, and the risks and vulnerabilities these countries face. We also evaluate progress on climate action and show governments how they can act on their policies to keep global warming to this limit.
We are currently seeking a Chief Operating Officer to manage the financial and operational functions of Climate Analytics and to lead the global operations team consisting of finance, human resources, administration and project management. A key priority for the position is to build up and maintain a solid financial system and structure on which the organisational and office development and direction can be built. The COO reports to the CEO, and is a key member of the Executive Management Team. The position is responsible for the smooth running of the organisation’s operations and financial management, including through the provision of related advice on strategic and risk related matters to senior management. It will foster a global organisational perspective for operations in support of the organisation’s programmes and offices and ensure alignment with its objectives and strategy.
