Company Description

SYSTEMIQ is an organisation driving system change in clean energy, circular material solutions and sustainable land use. By addressing failures in these areas, SYSTEMIQ aims to unlock economic opportunities that benefit business, society and the environment.

We connect the right people, ideas, technologies, and capital to transform economic systems. We do this through five activities:

  1. Convene and support coalitions of leaders to shape policies and business strategies that will rapidly transform economic activity
  2. Work with companies that want to be pioneers and drivers of change towards more sustainable systems
  3. Co-create and incubate the market solutions most likely to build regenerative economic systems
  4. Invest our own venture capital and expertise in opportunities with the biggest potential to drive rapid system change
  5. Direct larger pools of capital into regenerative economic systems, so they scale and multiply.

To deliver in these areas, we recruit and develop distinctive and varied individuals who strive to achieve our mission, challenge the status quo and act as change leaders.

These platforms focus on regenerative agriculture, investments and/or materials. As a senior-level consulting or industry professional with advanced knowledge in a range of business fields and substantial experience in topics related to these platforms, as well as knowledge and experience managing small-to-large scale projects, you will also be expected to:

  • Develop our approach to system-level change, including building new coalitions, lead corporate advisory, originate investment/venturing opportunities and potentially data-analytics;
  • Develop and implement a targeted go-to-market strategy, focusing on large EU-based emitters (e.g. oil & gas companies, auto-manufacturers, aviation, shipping, other hard-to-abate sectors such as cement, steel and chemicals);
  • Develop trusted relationship with very senior clients (C suite or public sector equivalent) to shape their strategies and bring new disruptive ideas to help clients innovate and scale-up more sustainable business models;

  • Manage financials of an assignment, including tracking project profitability and growth – but always with a strong focus on impact;

This highly strategic work involves some of the most prominent institutions in the field, has a very international character and aims to achieve significant impact over the next 3-5 years. Project work will require advanced problem solving, analytical and relationship skills to deliver breakthrough insights, action and results.
