We are looking for a smart, energetic individual with background in campaigning on social and environmental justice to join our Ecological Justice Programme. Recourse holds the World Bank Group and other IFIs accountable for their investments through advocacy, research and convening of civil society, in collaboration with a broad range of organisations and local partners.
This project aims to ensure International Finance Institutions’ (IFIs) investments support clean and sustainable renewable energy solutions and exclude fossil fuels.
The Clean Energy Project Manager will focus on ensuring that IFI lending prioritises clean energy solutions, with a particular focus on the World Bank. Working with partners, the Project Manager will develop a clear methodology to identify and account for clean and sustainable renewable energy solutions, as a way of supporting countries to achieve a green recovery and meet SDG7 goals around energy access. S/he will also contribute policy expertise to the policy reviews taking place at the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank and the Asian Development Bank.
The Clean Energy Project Manager will be a vital member of our small team, working closely with allies and partners in the global North and South, and engaging with the World Bank Group staff, management and member governments. The Project Manager will collaborate with other Recourse campaigns and will report to Recourse’s Co-Director in charge of the Clean Energy project.
This is an exciting and challenging role, involving work with southern partners, research, advocacy and international travel.
