Gold Standard is responsible for a number of externally funded initiatives and projects intending to build capacity amongst governments, the private sector and civil society to implement high-integrity climate action. As part of this, Gold Standard is implementing a multi-year project assisting countries in the Pacific Alliance (Chile, Colombia, Mexico, and Peru) on the implementation of their Nationally Determined Contributions, through dedicated support on issues related to monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV). We are recruiting for a Project Officer to support the implementation of Gold Standard’s capacity-building initiatives and projects, beginning with our support for the Pacific Alliance.
Through this project, Gold Standard provides support to the Pacific Alliance’s Sub-Group on MRV and Climate Change, responding to the priorities of member countries to build capacity and systems to underpin climate action. This involves the commissioning, development and management of research and reports, as well as running workshops, capacity-building activities, and pilots.
The Project Officer, working closely with the Project Manager, will be responsible for managing the day-to-day delivery of the project, including the development and delivery of workplans and budgets, financial tracking and reporting to donors, relationships with sub-contractors and engagement with country representatives and other stakeholders. The Project Officer would be expected to take similar responsibilities for other capacity-building projects in the future.
This is an exciting international role (two- year fixed term contract), that involves close collaboration with government officials and other experts, a varied portfolio of work, and an opportunity to work internationally to deliver meaningful outcomes for climate security and sustainable development.
This is a remote position, the role holder can be based in the UK, Germany or internal candidates.
