The Organisation

ClimateWorks Australia is an expert, independent adviser, acting as a bridge between research and action to accelerate the transition to net zero emissions for Australia and Asia Pacific. It was co-founded in 2009 by The Myer Foundation and Monash University and works within the Monash Sustainable Development Institute. ClimateWorks Australia also benefits from strong relationships with an international network of affiliated organisations that support effective policies, financing and action for greenhouse gas emissions reductions.

The Opportunity

The Senior Project Manager (Energy Systems) is responsible for the identification, development and delivery of projects that focus on supporting the decarbonisation of energy systems in Southeast Asian countries through renewable energy, energy efficiency and transport electrification.

The candidate will use their exceptional skills in stakeholder management, project management, and research and analysis to drive these projects, manage small project teams and identify and secure funding. In addition, the candidate will collaborate to translate project research into policy, financing, capacity strengthening and implementation recommendations, and provide technical content expertise, in line with the vision and priorities of ClimateWorks international program.

The position is highly collaborative, and works directly with a diverse range of stakeholders to identify key knowledge gaps and scope projects to meet those gaps. Projects may focus on building capacity in local counterparts or co-delivering targeted energy systems data analysis, policy recommendations and stakeholder engagement to scale up action by public and private sector organisations and development partners.

The incumbent will lead the identification, development and fundraising for new projects as well as manage staff members and/or small project teams to deliver on those programs through collaborative projects with multi and bilateral organisations, international non-government organisations, and government partners with a strong focus on capacity strengthening.

The Senior Project Manager will bring proven experience working in Southeast Asia, along with an aptitude for thinking outside the box to solve complex challenges, and a demonstrated track record in collaborating to deliver high impact and transformational projects.

If this sounds like a position that suits your current career focus we look forward to hearing from you.

This role is a full-time position; however, flexible working arrangements may be negotiated.
