Function: Volunteer Company: Finance for a Sustainable Future Duration: Part-Time Location: Flexible / Work From Home

Finance for a Sustainable Future is a Europe-wide initiative working to improve sustainability skills among junior finance professionals. We are a team of 9 volunteers, and we’re looking for a Head of 2019 Conference.

We have already organised the first Europe-wide conference on sustainable finance for students and junior finance professionals. At the conference we had speakers from the LSE (Nick Robins and Dr. Richard Perkins), UN PRI and sustainability-focused investment firms managing more than €3 trillion. We have also been recognised by the UN’s Environmental Program and McKinsey. You can read more information about our initiative at: www.financeforasustainablefuture.org and send any questions to contact@financeforasustainablefuture.org.

We are now working to scale our initiative further and as a result we are looking for talent to fill key leadership roles on a voluntary basis.
