Reporting and Research Manager
This is an exciting opportunity to join our fast-moving and supportive climate start-up as we enter a critical high-growth phase. We seek someone data-driven and detail-oriented to coordinate the systems and reporting that drive our campaign.
The ideal Reporting and Research Manager will be excited to use Excel to organise data and discover new insights into our work. They will enjoy digging into the details of the charities we support to report on their progress or fine-tune our methodology. They will relish the chance to master complex systems like Salesforce to advance our cause. And they will be comfortable communicating effectively and respectfully with our stakeholders, including Board members, potential donors and the charities we support.
Less than 2% of global philanthropy goes to climate mitigation. We’re working to change that.
First, we make high-impact climate philanthropy easy by assembling and reporting on a diverse portfolio of the world’s best climate charities. Second, we’re making that philanthropy normal in sectors where it plays almost no role today. To do this, we partner with financial advisers, investment platforms, investment managers and corporate social responsibility teams.
