Are you looking for a job where you can use your language skills to shape sustainable financing in Indonesia?
CDP requires a part-time English-speaking project officer with knowledge of Indonesia’s finance and forestry sectors to join its global, multi-award-winning investor team.
The successful candidate will work in the forests team to engage and build capacity with Indonesian financial institutions to measure and manage the environmental impacts of their financing activities. The work will be focused on issues concerning forests and how forests and land-use due diligence can be integrated into everyday business practices, alongside climate change and water security.
The project officer will work closely with the investor account manager to maintain and build new relationships with key financial institutions in Indonesia. Awareness raising and capacity building will support a shift to financing that supports sustainable consumption and production.
Candidates should have a passion for the environment and feel comfortable communicating with senior stakeholders including investors, insurers, banks and integrated financial institutions to help meet the project targets.
The project officer will work remotely from Indonesia with colleagues in Hong Kong and in the UK. It is expected that some local travel will be needed in future as pandemic conditions ease. Candidates should have an excellent level of spoken English and a good level of English literacy, as well as native/near native Bahasa Indonesian. It is an advantage to have experience working in the financial sector, an environmental NGO or consultancy.
About CDP’s forests program
CDP’s forests program works to remove commodity driven deforestation from corporate value chains to effectively contribute to a below 1.5⁰C, water secure world; and to decouple deforestation from forest risk commodity production. CDP’s work on forests was launched in 2014 and now boasts the backing of 594 financial institutions with over $96 trillion in assets. The program provides critical forests related data from the world’s largest corporations that buy, sell or trade key forests risk commodities (cattle products, palm oil, soy products and timber). The data is used to inform the global marketplace on investment risk and commercial opportunity, and to catalyze action, supporting companies in their efforts to remove deforestation from their supply chains.
