The ClimateWorks Finance Program aims to catalyze financial and market changes that accelerate climate action. It works in partnership with the philanthropic community to pursue multi-grant transnational strategies that target specific outcomes in the capital markets and for public finance. The Finance Program pursues these strategies through its own grantmaking and by convening and advising funders to foster collaboration and alignment. The program also incubates and supports nascent opportunities where finance is the lever of change.
The ClimateWorks Finance Program is currently looking for two additions to programmatic staff appointments to support the continued development, refinement, and delivery of the ClimateWorks Finance Program.
Both roles require a well-organized, detail-oriented, analytically minded self-starter with strong writing, research, and project management skills, and some knowledge of and experience in climate change and either public or private finance. We will consider a range of experience levels and qualifications for these positions and are seeking to strengthen the Finance Program team holistically based upon the applicant pool. Selected candidates will work across the finance team’s advisory, convening, and grantmaking roles. The role will support the development, coordination, and delivery of a number of concurrent projects and programmatic priorities and will report to the Finance Program’s Director.
New appointments will, at a minimum:
More experienced candidates will conduct the foregoing but be expected to operate with greater autonomy to develop strategy in collaboration with the program’s director, manage grantee and funder relations and, develop thought leadership.
ClimateWorks offers an excellent benefits package and a competitive salary that is commensurate with experience (geographic differential applied based on location).
ClimateWorks Foundation is based in the San Francisco Financial District. Our offices are closed due to Covid-19, and employees are working from home. We anticipate transitioning back to in-person work in our office in line with health and safety guidelines sometime in the second half of 2021.
At the ClimateWorks Foundation, we are driven by our vision of creating a thriving planet for all living beings for generations to come. At the center of this vision are people who are currently marginalized, including Black, Indigenous, and People of Color, who are most vulnerable to climate impacts, and whose voices, ideas, and leaders are crucial to winning the climate fight. Simply put, the future we strive for will be impossible to realize so long as systemic racism and anti-Blackness persist.
To this end, we have made a set of commitments across all dimensions of our work to further our mission and realize our vision. For more information, please visit: Fostering Racial and Social Justice in Pursuit of our Mission
