Do you want to move into the environmental sector?
As we accelerate toward the 2050 deadline of the Paris Agreement, it's becoming increasingly clear we are not going to meet the goals we set ourselves. Which is why action needs to be taken now. Do you want to work for an organisation which is delivering impactful investment strategies for climate and environmental projects globally?

We are looking for a results-oriented CFO/COO who enjoys supporting businesses through growth, who is able to design and implement processes, systems and infrastructure from scratch. Do you have strong problem solving and creative skills, high levels of attention to detail, and the ability to exercise sound judgement and make decisions based on accurate and timely analyses?
You must have:
This role will have responsibility for Compliance and Risk, Accounting and Finance, IT, HR and Legal and will benefit from a supportive team which includes an experienced Group Accountant, a Financial Accountant and an Office Manager.
