E3G’s Clean Economy team is hiring


E3G’s Clean Economy team is excited to be recruiting for several new roles. Our aim is to ensure we have the political and economic conditions for the transition to a climate neutral world. We seek to enable politics, societies and the economy to change, and do this by ensuring the institutions and instruments are in place to facilitate this. Our toolkit includes thought leadership, high quality analysis, strategy development and convening stakeholders.

During 2021 we will be focusing on: 

  • Making sure the global economic environment, and actions taken in the European Green Deal and individual countries, will help build climate neutral and climate resilient economies 
  • Updating the energy system in Europe and globally to be on track to net- zero greenhouse gas emissions 
  • Taking a place-based approach to change and to delivery, including through the EU’s Renovation Wave.

Our work involves both political advocacy and the underpinning research, and this is reflected in the roles we are advertising here. The emphasis for research is to inform policy outcomes and developing innovative insights into the political economy of the transition. The emphasis for policy advice is to focus on reaching the outcome by building coalitions, developing persuasive narratives, and creating advocacy strategies. Click through the linked jobs below to find more information on the roles of Researcher, Senior Researcher, Policy Advisor and Senior Policy Advisor. 

E3G values diversity and welcomes applications from all qualified candidates regardless of age, gender, race, disability, sexual orientation, religion or ethnic background. We are happy to discuss flexible working arrangements if this enables you to apply. 

You are welcome to apply to more than one role.
