Removing excess carbon from the atmosphere, along with rapidly reducing emissions, are essential to ensure a safer climate. We believe Europe has a unique opportunity to lead the deployment of carbon removal, as part of humanity’s toolbox to fight climate change. We’re here to help and guide European decision makers. Our advice is independent and science-based. We bridge the knowledge, policy and ambition gaps so that carbon removal becomes a critical pillar of European climate action.
Join our team to help make our vision of safe, effective and socially responsible carbon dioxide removal a reality.
We are continuing to build out a team of experienced carbon removal policy professionals and are looking for individuals with a track record of successfully influencing policy development on carbon removal or adjacent policy areas and a relevant network within the Brussels policy ecosystem, to help make our vision of safe, effective and socially responsible carbon removal a reality. If you have the ambition to match our mission and are seeking a platform to scale your personal impact in a high empowerment and high accountability environment, we want to talk to you.
We are looking for a new member of the team in Brussels to collaborate with us on the development and execution of policy advocacy on current policy files and future policy strategies. Your day-to-day work will be to actively lead one area of policy work as well as to actively contribute across other policy workstreams.
We will help you to lead engagement with policymakers and influencers and to develop your own expertise and profile in climate and carbon removal policy based upon your previous experience in an NGO, trade association, consultancy or EU institution. Your prior work in climate, environmental or sustainability policy as well as your excellent analytical skills will quickly make you an invaluable member of the advocacy efforts towards the knowledge, policy and ambition gaps that we are on a mission to bridge.

You’re committed to climate action
You don’t need to be an expert in carbon removal, but the idea that we can take carbon from the atmosphere, stop climate change, and begin repairing the damage we’ve done to the planet excites you.
You’re comfortable with new material
Diving into a new field, learning new acronyms and concepts, and digesting academic papers doesn’t scare you. You want to become a master of new ideas and concepts.
You make complicated things simple
You have a knack for understanding big, complex issues and distilling them into what your audience needs to know, especially through writing.
Put the planet first
We’re doing this because it’s what we need to do to keep a safe climate. We won’t be influenced by special interests and short-term concerns.
What’s important is that the work gets done, not that we look good doing it.
The world is running out of time, and we need to work well together, both inside and outside our team.
Follow the science
We are non-partisan, independent, and unbiased; we work on carbon removal because it’s what the science tells us is necessary.
Listen to everyone
The best ideas come from diverse teams listening to diverse voices.
