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.
You will be a key member of our team assessing corporate influence over key areas of sustainability related policy, with a focus on either biodiversity or circular economy. This part of our work has had a major impact on the global climate change agenda so far, and we are expanding to tackle other critical policy areas. As an analyst you will receive full training in InfluenceMap’s research methods and how to effectively communicate our results. You will use your knowledge on biodiversity/circular economy related policy to help adapt InfluenceMap’s methodology, expand our core lobbying program, and deliver a new platform covering either biodiversity or circular economy. Our approach is highly data-orientated and involves accuracy, consistency and excellent attention to detail. Our work is in widespread use by finance, the media and other stakeholders, and we thus place great importance on the ability to communicate our content (both written and verbal) effectively.
You will report to a Program Manager and work closely with the Director of this work stream. We have teams based in the UK and in the US, and your location is flexible. You will be expected to be thoroughly comfortable with the latest cloud-based efficiency and communication tools.
