Description

Energy Innovation: Policy and Technology, LLC (EI) was established in 2012 as a clean energy and environmental policy firm to provide timely research and analysis on low-carbon energy policy options to policy makers, thought leaders, and members of the media.

EI’s Crux Alliance was formed under the premise that a handful of carbon reduction strategies account for the majority of carbon reduction potential. The Alliance includes sector-specific NGOs that have come together to further the mission of Crux. EI helps to staff the Crux Secretariat to support this fiscally-sponsored project. 

Position Overview

EI seeks an experienced grantmaking professional to serve as Program Officer. The Program Officer will manage a suite of anchor grantees and provide input, leadership and fundraising effort to the overall Pro with the goal of expanding the effectiveness and reach of the program. The Program Officer will report to the Executive Director of Crux and serve as a critical thought partner for the overall Crux effort.

Our Client:

Climate change is governed by inexorable, physical facts—about carbon sources, accumulation, impacts, and timing, and then, symmetrically, about solutions that work. These facts must inform strategy: they show that avoiding dangerous climate change is only possible by strong policy to cut carbon, promptly, in the largest emitting countries.

Position Responsibilities

  • As an experienced grantmaking professional, the Program Officer will help manage a suite of anchor grantees and provide input, leadership and fundraising effort to the overall Crux Alliance with the goal of expanding the effectiveness and reach of the Crux methodology.
  • The Program Officer will be directly responsible for a subset of grantmaking for the Crux Secretariat.
  • The Program Officer will report to the Executive Director of Crux and serve as a critical thought partner for the overall Crux effort.

Profile of the Successful Candidate

  • Crux Secretariat seeks a seasoned professional with ample experience in the philanthropic field; in other words, someone who recognizes the difference between supporting and doing. The role of program officer is a unique position because it operates at the nexus of funding and action. The role helps on-the ground implementers be more successful, and provides an inside view of the evolving policy landscape.
  • The ideal candidate will have a passion for the work of climate mitigation and be a dogged champion of the Crux approach of providing expert technical assistance to policy makers in the sectors and countries that matter most for climate mitigation.
  • The Program Officer will possess at least seven years’ experience in the climate change field, demonstrated leadership and management experience, and the ability to engage in and incubate a variety of programs at any given time.
  • They will have deep experience in one or more sectors (e.g. power sector, transport, etc.) with a corresponding network.
  • Experience in the building sector will get special consideration.
  • Experience working with one or more of the large emitters—especially in East or Southeast Asia—would also be an advantage.
