If you're after a rewarding career, Monash University can help make it happen.  With leading academics and world-class resources, combined with a ranking in the top 100 universities worldwide, we offer all you need to build a brighter future.

The Opportunity

ClimateWorks Australia's goal is to achieve substantial reduction in greenhouse gas emissions in Australia by demonstrating that we can significantly reduce emissions while our economy continues to grow. ClimateWorks' distinct approach is our ability to research a problem to identify the emission reduction potential and understand the barriers that prevent it from being implemented, and then engage with key stakeholders across business and government to address those barriers.

As the Project Manager, you will work to develop and deliver projects that help catalyse emission reduction activities across the economy. In this role you will be responsible for ensuring that ClimateWorks projects are successful in helping our government, corporate and investor stakeholders to accelerate emissions reductions today and plan for achieving deep emissions reductions in the future. You will also be responsible for planning, coordinating and undertaking engagement with key stakeholders across our target audiences.

This is no ordinary project management role. In addition to proven experience in managing projects independently, the ideal candidate will have strong communication skills, proven experience in building productive relationships and projects with the corporate and government sectors, knowledge of climate change policies and organisations in Australia, and an understanding of how to use behavioural/social science principles in order to motivate change. 

If you believe you have the relevant background to undertake this role, we welcome your application.

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

Your application must address the selection criteria. Please refer to "How to apply for Monash Jobs"
