The world is now starting to make a seismic shift towards a Net Zero, Nature Positive future, and science based targets (SBTs) are critical to drive the transition of business globally.
We are building a new business advocacy team to align, strengthen and supercharge our already strong advocacy base. You could play an expert role in our new team as we look to build on the success of the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) in setting corporate climate targets and to do the same for Nature through the Science Based Targets Network (SBTN).
As Science Based Targets Advocacy Manager you will act as the intermediary between science and business. You will focus primarily on applying your Science Based Targets expertise in support of our business advocacy strategy by working with and influencing key business sector actors and corporate partners. You will need to work with critical stakeholders to understand and bridge the gap between the evolving technical methodologies of SBTi and SBTN and the practical reality of implementing targets in areas such as the food and financial sectors. You will also support the development of policy and advocacy across our three main impact goals of climate, food and thriving habitats and species. You will need to be confident in translating scientific information for a corporate/non-technical audience as well as produce technical reports, briefings and organise training and workshops as needed. You will collaborate with colleagues in the UK and in our extensive network to increase internal and external understanding of and implementation of SBTs for climate and nature.
To make this role a success, you must have extensive technical and working knowledge of science based targets for climate and nature. This will include knowledge of the biodiversity and climate change challenges facing businesses and their supply chains. You will have worked in corporate science-based target-setting, corporate sustainability strategy and/or supply/value-chain mapping. You must be confident in translating and articulating complex technical information for business or non-technical audiences, and possess strong interpersonal, influencing and communication skills. You will also enjoy cross team matrix working, adapting to a rapidly changing context and operating at pace to deliver change. You will need to be driven to support the transition of business and be innovative and flexible in your way of working. Crucially you will have a commitment to the natural world and WWF’s core mission.
