The European Climate Foundation (ECF) was founded in 2008 as a major philanthropic initiative to help tackle climate change by fostering the development of a low-carbon society at the national, European and global level.
We support over 280 partner organisations to carry out activities that contribute to the public debate on climate action, drive urgent and ambitious policy in support of the objectives of the Paris Agreement and help deliver a socially responsible transition to a net-zero emissions economy and sustainable society in Europe and around the world.
About the role
ECF has been working and supporting different partners in Spain for a number of years across a range of policy areas: clean energy, transport, coal, just transition, and governance framework. We now want to step up our engagement by establishing a comprehensive ECF Spanish programme to better coordinate ECF projects and to build on recent promising developments on climate policy in Spain.
The Spain Programme Director is a new position which will build upon these existing resources, networks and partnerships (NGOs, think tanks, social partners, business groups and others) to develop an ECF strategy for Spain which can bring new impetus to our work and build broad cross-partisan support for climate action across different sectors of society.
This strategy should support the achievement of Spain’s 2020 and 2030 climate targets and help raise ambition still further, driving a deep and effective transition to a net- zero economy by 2050. The strategy should also build on Spain’s role as a potential major player at EU level as well as Spain’s wider global role, with its Latin American and Mediterranean neighbors, as we prepare for COP 26.
The role of the Spain Programme Director is an exciting opportunity to work with a network of dynamic partners in Spain and beyond and develop creative and innovative strategy and tactics in support of climate ambition.
The ECF is looking for a talented, dynamic, experienced and strategic individual to help deliver climate ambition in Spain, support its role in delivering on the EU Green Deal and playing an active global role.
The Spain Programme Director will be responsible for developing strategy and managing implementation of ECF’s work in Spain and ensuring it is aligned with and supportive of the ECF’s wider programmatic objectives. Responsibilities include:
