Macquarie is already a global leader in driving the global energy transition and advancing activity to mitigate and adapt to climate change. Our work is focused on developing and managing renewable energy projects, adapting infrastructure for climate resilience and helping our clients on their decarbonisation pathways. We are increasingly building a global leadership presence in these areas and have been engaged in a range of global initiatives such as CFLI, GCA, SMI and the Taskforce on Voluntary Carbon Offsets. Our senior leaders are sought after to support global initiatives and share their insights at high profile events.
As part of our continued efforts to lead the transition to a low carbon, sustainable global economy, an exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced subject matter expert to help build and lead a new Climate Intelligence Unit for Macquarie Group, which will provide central resource to support businesses, functions and colleagues with actionable intelligence on climate science, markets, policy and competitors.
You will lead a small team, and work with colleagues across the Group, to ensure that the relevant colleagues are well briefed on market developments and produce compelling and differentiated thought leadership for clients and wider stakeholders. You will be required to positively engage in strategic policy discussions and support senior leaders, in external engagement with their cross-Group initiatives and events.
To be successful in this role, you will be a broad-based subject matter expert ideally with 8-10 years’ experience within the climate, energy or corporate research space, with a strong commercial edge who can produce high quality content and understands how to bring value to client-facing teams. You will possess excellent stakeholder management (internal and external), research analysis and presentation skills with the ability to communicate effectively with a wide range of audiences. You will have strong experience in building and/or leading a high quality team of subject matter experts in the green energy transition.
