Sustainability Consultant - Climate & Carbon Reduction

Rewild Agency

About Rewild

Rewild is a strategic sustainability consultancy based in Melbourne, helping organisations with sustainability measurement, strategy, design, communication and education. We take a step-by-step approach to defining both the big-picture and day-to-day detail of what sustainability means for each organisation we work with.

We are unique in our holistic approach, bringing together Environmental and Social Governance (ESG) services and Environmentally Sustainable Design (ESD) to enable organisations to set and deliver clear strategies to improve their environmental and social impact, including decarbonising their products, services, operations and/or buildings.

About the role

We are seeking an enthusiastic and driven Sustainability Consultant to join our growing business. The role will involve assisting the organisations we work with to improve their approach to managing ESG issues, with a particular focus on helping clients to measure and manage their climate impacts. This will involve building carbon accounting skills and working on carbon reduction strategies.

While pre-existing experience in carbon accounting is not essential, you must understand basic climate science and challenges and it is strongly preferred that you have some existing experience with carbon accounting or another form of data analytics/management. If you don’t have existing skills in carbon accounting but you have a passion and appetite to learn and build your skills in this area (in a supported environment) and love data – then you are encouraged to apply.

This role may also require you to work on broader ESG issues and workstreams such as assisting with stakeholder engagement activities, analysing ESG risks and developing holistic ESG strategies for our clients.

To be successful in this role, you’ll bring:

  • Curiosity and passion for all aspects of sustainability
  • Either 2-3 years’ experience in a corporate sustainability-related role or 3-5 years' business experience plus a professional qualification in a sustainability-related field.
  • An interest in carbon accounting and familiarity with basic climate science and global standards.
  • Familiarity with Australian and International sustainability standards, frameworks, guidelines and tools.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills, including ability to convey technical concepts and solutions to non-technical audiences.
  • Excellent time management and project management skills that you’ve successfully applied to projects.
  • The ability to think creatively and collaborate with others.
  • High levels of self-motivation.
  • An open, fun, and agile attitude to creating a new business offering.

You might also bring:

  • Experience with carbon accounting or LCA’s.
  • Experience with strategic communications, marketing or business development.
  • An interest in curriculum development, workshop facilitation and training.

About you:

  • A sustainability enthusiast, you are committed to making the world a better place for all current and future generations.
  • Impact driven, you have a track record of delivering results in new environments and overcoming unexpected challenges.
  • A team player, comfortable working within small, agile distributed team.
  • An agile mindset, able to navigate client challenges (even if you don’t know the answer) and work with a team and project partners to success.
  • Possesses a proven track record of working autonomously.
  • Advanced Microsoft Office skills.
  • Excellent verbal and written communications skills.

Why Rewild

We have reached a moment where all of us have a responsibility to do better – to create positive social and environmental outcomes while doing business – to regenerate the ecosystems within which we operate.

We offer:

  • A boutique sustainability consultancy, offering the opportunity to combine sustainable business and design experience, with a focus on delivering regenerative, planet-positive outcomes.
  • Family-friendly and flexible working arrangements.
  • Training and development opportunities.
  • Paid volunteering leave.
  • Birthdays off.
