Position description

We are a London UK based non-profit think tank working on the cutting edge of climate and sustainability issues. Our highly original analysis of the climate agenda has been covered by media globally, used and acted on by hundreds of investors and has informed numerous campaigns. We are probably best known for our unique platform for analyzing corporate lobbying on climate policy. Other workstreams are the FinanceMap platform assessing the financial sector and its impact on climate as well as a Japanese collaborative venture (the Japan Energy Transition Initiative).

Joining InfluenceMap represents a great opportunity to be part of a friendly and dynamic team, work with our global network of partners in the finance, media and campaigning worlds and help develop our cutting-edge content which is helping to shape the agenda on the climate crisis.

One of our core values is the use of data-intensive research processes to create simple and compelling narratives on climate change. At the heart of this is our strict adherence to thorough and objective data analysis, using a range of sources and tools. InfluenceMap operates a collaborative model, creating unique and data driven content which enables a range of partners to drive positive change on the climate crisis. These partners represent a diversity of voices from finance, business, media, civil society, campaigns, politics and legal sectors and are global. At InfluenceMap we strongly value diversity, equity and inclusivity in our work, which view as critical to our mission and strategy.
