Climate Arc's mission is to accelerate the transition of the world towards meeting global net zero emissions by no later than 2050, and, in doing so, help to create a sustainable and healthy planet for everyone. Climate Arc is founded on the belief that this can only be achieved if the transition is financed at the scale and speed needed according to the latest climate science, which underscores the importance of near-term action.

Today, the financial system is not on track to deliver, and an acceleration of ambition and speed is urgently needed.

To achieve this, Climate Arc will address the current gaps head on. It will create a global collaborative platform where critical data and analysis, crucial for financial decision-making, can be shared and refined amongst financiers, corporates, NGOs and governments to achieve the common goals set out in the Paris Agreement.

Key Responsibilities

  • Develop Climate Arc's sub-strategy for the financials sector - banks, insurers, investors and other financial service providers - to support delivery of the overall strategy

  • Develop, manage and implement complex research assignments and analytical projects to stakeholders with different levels of understanding of financial systems

  • Establish and maintain strong ties with practitioners in the financial institutions globally to seek net zero solutions

  • Maintain collaborative relationships with Climate Arc's partners and grantees - engaging and advising on research and analysis findings

Key Requirements

  • A commitment to Climate Arc's vision and mission

  • Significant knowledge of and experience in the finance sector with research capability of banks, insurance and/or investment firms (sell-side or buy-side research preferred).

  • Understanding of the challenges facing financial sector organisations in aligning financing with net zero and how the barriers can be unlocked.

  • Understanding of trends in financial regulations and policy shifts and their implications on climate finance and relevant strategies.

  • The ability to manage priorities to competing deadlines, thriving on diversity in the role and the opportunity to contribute to the development of a start-up organisation

  • Produce high-quality materials such as numerical analysis, written documents and presentations to short deadlines
