The Role

A rare opportunity has arisen for an outstanding individual to join ClimateCare’s Portfolio Team as a Carbon Portfolio Analyst with the opportunity to progress within the team and business at an exciting point in the voluntary carbon market.

This is a pivotal team sitting in between the voluntary carbon supply market of projects and our client teams and wholesale clients.

Bespoke portfolios, including different volumes of carbon credits from such projects are generated by the Portfolio Manager, working closely with the client managers, considering all commercial, timing, risk and contractual elements. Once successful the team will contract and fulfil sales once they are agreed, managing the movement of the carbon credits.
