About the European Climate Foundation
The European Climate Foundation (ECF) is a major philanthropic initiative working to help tackle the climate crisis by fostering the development of a net-zero emission society at the national, European and global level.
We support over 300 partner organisations to carry out activities that drive urgent and ambitious policy in support of the objectives of the Paris Agreement, contribute to the public debate on climate action and help deliver a socially responsible transition to a net-zero economy and sustainable society in Europe and around the world.
The ECF brings together diverse perspectives and backgrounds to find the best innovative solutions to tackle climate change. We are focusing on engaging and hiring great people from a wide diversity of backgrounds to strengthen the cause. If you share our values of respect, innovation, and collaboration, join us.
About the role
The ECF Programme in Central Europe works with a wide range of partners in civil society, think tanks, business and academia to support positive action towards climate neutrality within the countries of the region. We work to build political will and technical background for more ambitious action on climate change; and to develop solutions to the policy and practical challenges to decarbonisation of the entire economy. One of the key challenges in this process is transformation of the transport sector towards e-mobility. In countries like Slovakia, Czech Republic or Hungary car manufacturing is an essential part of economy. Yet, too little attention is paid to inevitable transformation and especially to its social and economic consequences.
This job focuses on Slovakia, Czech Republic and Hungary with prospects of liaising across the region. It offers an excellent opportunity to contribute to the development and expansion of ECF’s programme, and to influence the climate and mobility debates in countries as well as Europe.
The post holder will play a key role in providing research, strategic advice, identifying and developing cooperation with new partners, monitoring and evaluating the progress of different work streams. There will be direct engagement with other ECF programmes and partners in designing and aligning strategies.
The post holder will be responsible for:
