There are currently two vacancies at Green Alliance:

Operations director
Are you a people focused operations professional?
This is an exciting and varied role leading the operational functions of Green Alliance. As an organisation that punches above its weight in its policy and politics work, and which maintains an excellent reputation for high quality outputs, the operations director plays a pivotal role in making sure this also applies to Green Alliance’s internal practices, managing the smooth running of the finances, staff and work practices to the highest standards.

The post holder will be the linchpin of the organisation. We are looking for someone who will maintain an overview of operations, while understanding and responding to the needs of both the staff team and the organisation. They need to be an effective communicator, with high levels of emotional intelligence, and be responsible for creating a supportive, positive and effective workplace.

The post holder will need to be able to switch easily between problem solving and strategic thinking, a confident decision maker and able to manage multiple projects and tasks concurrently. They will need a ‘can do’ attitude and to be a ‘completer-finisher'.

Responsible for ensuring the financial wellbeing of Green Alliance, they oversee organisational budgets, management accounts and long term financial planning. They will also lead on the HR functions with support from the HR officer, ensuring Green Alliance has the skills and knowledge required to achieve its goals and that the policies and practices adopted are executed to a high standard.

Do you want to help build the green economy?

Following the Glasgow climate summit, Green Alliance is working to build momentum to decarbonise the UK economy and deliver environmental improvements. As part of this work, we are looking for a policy adviser in our Greening the Economy theme to help manage our work to deliver a sustainable and healthy UK economy. You will be a strong researcher and confident communicator who can understand the main economic and political challenges in the UK, and their relationship to environmental progress.

As well as the bigger picture, you might have specific experience in one of our work areas, for example, the financial system, innovation and industrial strategy, fiscal policy, either from a business, policy or government perspective.

Key will be the ability to work across different projects in our Greening the Economy theme, identifying the links between them and ensuring they are complementary. It will require a keen awareness of the external environment and being able to spot opportunities for intervention.

You should be an organised project manager and self starter, able to build effective relationships, both inside and outside the organisation. This role includes tracking project delivery, including ensuring outputs and events are effectively planned and executed to deadline.

Communication skills are important. As well as building on the knowledge of expert colleagues and synthesising complex information, you will also have the ability to network and build relationships with politicians, environmental NGOs and other stakeholders, helping to secure support for projects and policy proposals. You do not necessarily need experience in environmental policy but you must have a passion for delivering positive environmental impacts.
